My Piña Colada Pound Cake screams summer.

I absolute love the smell and flavor of coconut.

Especially when it is paired with the perfect partner.


However, I am not a fan of coconut’s texture.

I thought I would eventually learn to love it.

I don’t…..

So I leave out the shredded coconut.

But, feel free to add it back in.

I have included that option in this recipe.
