Triple Coconut Pound Cake with Salted Caramel Glaze 1

Finally I’ve got a bake that’s turned out well, after a weekend of fails this glorious pound cake made up for all the disappointment it’s heavenly. I’m so in love with this cake and you’ll be too, I guarantee it!

After not posting anything for around two weeks, I’m back with a whole lot of great recipes, this one included. Be sure to keep checking back as I’ll be posting regularly for the next week or so. I’ve got so many recipes I want to try and I’m so excited to get back into blogging and sharing them with you all.

Triple Coconut Pound Cake with Salted Caramel Glaze 3

The first recipe on my list is this Triple Coconut Pound Cake with my homemade vanilla salted caramel drizzle. Originally I was going to drizzle the cake with a lime powdered sugar icing but when I found a little bit of salted caramel in my cupboard I knew it was going to work with coconut. If you remember I used it for my Vanilla Salt Salted Caramel Cookie Cake and seeing as that went down a treat I couldn’t resist the opportunity to use the last of it up.

It’s the crumbliest, creamiest, most tender cake I’ve made to date! It’s so light I could barely slice it in one piece, I did manage to get one slice that held and that’s the one in the photo. If you make this cake you won’t be able to stop picking at it, it’s rather moreish If I say so myself.

I knew this cake was going to be a winner when I licked the batter from the spatula, I wanted to eat the whole lot, it’s a good job I’d put it in the oven. Trust me on this one it’s going to be the best coconut cake you’ve ever tasted. I loaded this coconut pound cake with three different types, raw coconut chips, LorAnn Coconut Baking Emulsion and coconut cream. I believe using coconut cream makes the crumb silky and tender whilst keeping it fresher for longer so it won’t dry out. Although there’s no problem with this cake drying out, it just simply won’t get the chance as it’ll be gone before you know it. It’s just that good!

I’ve used LorAnn baking emulsions and oils before and I simply adore the coconut baking emulsion, it gives such a great natural flavour. The raw coconut chips gives the cake a nice textural contrast, whilst the crumb is soft you get little bites of chewiness from the chips. I also toasted some and sprinkled them on top for more bite.

The salted caramel drizzle on top is the perfect sticky topping, it’s oozed into the crust of the pound cake and will fill each bite will caramel-y goodness. If you don’t have any then don’t fret, it’s not essential to enjoy this cake, it’ll be just as good on its own. I’ve become a great fan of coconut recently and this cake has such perfect flavours, if you’re a coconut lover then this cake will have you swept of your feet, it’ll be hard to find a pound cake that a more tropical and creamy coconut flavour than this one. Fact!

Banana Split Bundt

Banana Split Bundt 1.jpg text


One of my favourite things about baking is the creativity and boy did I get creative with this month’s Cake Slice Bakers bake.

Banana Split Bundt 2

My choice this month was banana split cake and whilst I stuck to the core ingredients I deviated from the fillers or add ins. See, I wasn’t really feeling the combination of pineapple and coconut along with glace cherries, so I switched things around a bit and added a different icing to the Cream cheese one that was listed, as to be honest I’m not a fan of this particular glaze.

Banana Split Bundt 3

When I think of Banana Splits I think if of banana alongside ice cream, chocolate, nuts and candy. So basing my bundt around this I’ve created this candy stuffed banana bundt with a banana butterscotch glaze.

Banana Split Bundt 4

What you’ve got yourself here is a simple banana bread recipe that has a mixture of pecans, dried cherries, butterscotch pieces, m&ms, peanut m&ms with a dash of vanilla extract and butterscotch flavouring.

Banana Split Bundt 5

A dense cake is crammed full of delicious treats which I would totally garnish my banana split with, all that’s missing from this is the ice cream.

Banana Split Bundt 6

You could add a scoop alongside this, now isn’t that food for thought.

Banana Split Bundt 7

I kept the glaze for this really low-key and simply made a quick buttermilk glaze which I flavoured with LorAnn butterscotch oil and a new to me ingredient LorAnn banana baking emulsion. You guy’s, this stuff is so so good!!

Banana Split Bundt 8

I can see myself using a lot more of this. Using a combination of this as well as the butterscotch flavouring you get a bannoffee flavoured icing. It well and truly is the icing on the cake.
