2 teaspoons Fleischmann's® Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup Mazola® Right Blend Oil
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 eggs
1-1/2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon peel
1-1/2 teaspoons freshly grated lime peel
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
Cream Cheese Glaze
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 to 3 tablespoons coconut milk OR whole milk
Toasted Coconut
1/2 cup shredded, sweetened coconut



Preheat oven to 350˚F. Generously grease and flour a 10-inch bundt pan; set aside.

Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl; set aside.

Stir together milk, oil and butter in a large bowl of electric mixer. Add eggs, peel and citrus juices; beat until combined.

Add about 1/3 of flour mixture, beating until smooth after each addition. Beat 1 minute on medium speed, scraping sides and bottom of bowl occasionally.

Pour batter into prepared pan; bake for 50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into centre comes out clean.

Let cool on wire rack about 20 minutes. Gently loosen edge of cake with knife. Place a large platter on top of pan and invert cake. Let cake cool about 2 hours.

Spoon Cream Cheese Glaze over top of cake; sprinkle with Toasted Coconut.

Cover and refrigerate leftovers.

Cream Cheese Glaze:

Stir cream cheese and butter until combined. Stir in powdered sugar. Add vanilla extract and milk; stir until smooth.

Tip: Glaze should be thick, but still fluid. Add more milk if needed.

Toasted Coconut:

Spread coconut evenly on a large, rimmed baking sheet. Bake 5 to 10 minutes at 350˚F, stirring every few minutes until lightly browned.
