Sing To Me Autumn

Enjoy this post from the past…we are in full Fall busy mode this weekend! Sassy Princess picture included

Sing To Me, Autumn

Sing to me, Autumn, with the rustle of your leaves.

Breathe on me your spicy scents that flow within your breeze.

Dance with me, Autumn, your waltz that bends the boughs of trees.

Now tell me all the secrets you’ve whispered to the seas.

Sleep with me, Autumn, beneath your starlit skies.

Let your yellow harvest moon shimmer in our eyes.

Kiss me, Autumn, with your enchanting spellbound ways

That changes all you touch into crimson golden days.

Love me, Autumn, and behold this love so true

That I’ll be waiting faithfully each year to be with you.

Going Coconuts

Feeling a little Fall like today and it makes me want to bake! Thinking about coconuts and it makes me want to bake Coconut Pound Cake…why not. It’s sweet, moist, tender and oh so delicious. It is also wonderful to tuck into a lunchbox for a small sweet treat. It is kind of perfect, matter of fact. I may just have to try another piece…just to make sure.

The Usual Cast Of Characters

3/4 cup softened butter
3/4 cup coconut milk
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs (lightly beaten)
4 – 6 Tablespoons shredded coconut, depending on how you like it!
1 3/4 cups All purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

The Steps to Glory

  • Preheat over to 350 degrees.
  • Greese and flour 1 loaf pan, set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix softened butter and sugar together until fluffy.
  • In a seperate small bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder, and shredded coconut.
  • Add eggs, one at a time into butter/sugar mixture. Mix well.
  • Add coconut milk, alternating with flour/coconut mixture (this will prevent lumps).
  • Pour batter into loaf pan and bake for 1 – 1 1/4 hours.

So soft and delicious!

Enjoy with your favorite First Grader!
