 extract for the vanilla if preferred.
      1. CRUST: Combine in mixing bowl the 1/3 cup margarine, softened,
 1/2 cup brown sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, coconut
 and walnuts. Blend well. Set aside 1/4 cup of this mixture. Press
 remaining mixture onto sides and bottom of a well-greased 9 x 5 x
 3-inch loaf pan. Refrigerate while preparing cake.
      2. CAKE: Sift 1-1/2 cups flour with baking powder and salt. Set
      3. Cream together 1/2 cup butter or margarine and 3 ounces of
 cream cheese. Gradually add 3/4 cup sugar and cream until light and
 fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Add half the
 flour mixture; blend well. Use low speed of mixer if using. Blend in
 milk and vanilla extract; blend in remaining flour mixture.
      4. Pour batter into prepared pan that has been refrigerated.
 Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Bake in preheated 325-degree
 oven for 60-70 minutes or until cake is golden brown and springs back
 when lightly touched. Cool 10 minutes in pan; remove and cool
 completely, upside down, on wire rack. Serve this delicious cake as
 is, or use a lemon sauce over.
