Ingredients

  • 1 cup room temperature butter salted or unsalted, your preference
  • 1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening brand recommended
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour sifted and measured correctly
  • 1, 8 ounce package cream cheese (brand recommended, low or fat free not recommended)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 6 extra large eggs or 7 large eggs
  • 1 cup flaked coconut pulsed 4 to 5 times in a food processor

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Grease and flour (or *sugar) a 10-inch tube pan. (Pans I prefer can be found here.)
  • Beat butter, shortening, and sugar together. Next add the cream cheese and blend until fluffy.
  • Add eggs alternately with flour, beginning and ending with flour.
  • Blend in the coconut and almond extracts.
  • Stir in coconut.
  • Pour into prepared baking pan.
  • Place pan on a baking sheet and bake at 325 degrees for 85 to 90 minutes. Test cake with a wooden pick or skewer. Cake is done when dry crumbs or no crumbs come out on pick when inserted into the thickest part of the cake.
  • Cool on a wire rack 20 minutes before inverting on serving tray.
  • Frost, if desired, and serve.*See posts for details
