coconut-lemon bundt cake

i made this little cake for this little party. it was so so yum! 
mike's grandmom asked for the recipe so i figured i'd just share it with everyone.
it's from this great cookbook. i love everything isa puts out... 
i own pretty much all of her cookbooks.

what you need on hand:
1 2/3c sugar
2/3c oil
1 (14 oz can) coconut milk
1/4c soy milk
1/4c lemon juice
3Tbs finely grated lemon zest
2tsp pure vanilla extract
3c all-purpose flour
2tsp baking powder
1tsp baking soda
1tsp salt
1 1/2c shredded unsweetened coconut
a few Tbs confectioners' sugar for sprinkling

puttin' it together:
*preheat over to 350. lightly grease an 8 or 10 inch bundt pan.
*in a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, oil, coconut milk, soy milk, lemon juice, zest & vanilla. stir to combine.
*sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, & salt into the wet ingredients in batches, mixing well after each addition. fold in the coconut. 
*pour the batter into the bundt pan. bake for 1 hour (i only had to bake mine for about 45 mins), or until a knife inserted through the cake comes out clean.
*remove from the oven & let cool for about 10 min, then place a cutting board over the cake pan, gently flip over, & release the cake from the pan. let cool completely. once cooled, sift a sprinkling of confectioners' sugar over the top.
*slice & serve!
ah, i just adore these sister-in-laws of mine!
so so so so soooooo blessed by them!
