Coconut Cake

My husband brought this home from work and I tried it the very next day.  If you don't have buttermilk on hand you can always add one TBS lemon juice to one cup of milk allow to sit for 5 minutes and it will curdle like buttermilk.  Sometimes I have the powdered buttermilk in the fridge and that works just as well too.

I Forgot to take a picture of it after I dumped it out of the bundt pan. 

Jer's Coconut Cake

4 Eggs
2 Cups Sugar
1 Cup Oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking Soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. coconut flavoring
1 cup buttermilk
3 cups Flour
2 cups coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts

Blend eggs, sugar, oil.  Next add the baking soda, salt, baking powder, coconut flavoring, and mix well.  Then add buttermilk and mix well.  Mix in Flour.  After the flour is mixed in add the coconut and nuts.  Stir well.  Bake in a well greased and floured bundt pan.  Bake @ 325 for 1 hour and 15 minutes.  About 10 minutes before taking the cake out of the oven put 1 cup of Sugar, 1/2 cup of water, 2 TBS. Butter in saucepan and boil for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and add 1 tsp. coconut flavoring.  When you remove the cake immediately pour the syrup over the hot cake while the cake is still in the pan.  Let cake stand in pan for 4 hours to allow the syrup to soak in.  After removing the cake from the pan wrap it in plastic wrap to keep it moist.
