Pound Cakes are one of my favorite desserts to make. They are so easy in my KitchenAid mixer and everyone loves them! They also freeze well! I made this Coconut Cream Cheese Pound Cake for a cookout and everyone raved about it! We served it with some whipped cream, ice cream and berries. You can even drizzle it with a little chocolate or caramel sauce. Heaven!
