Coconut Bundt Cake

Yummy Coconut Bundt Cake

I am not sure why, but I love to make bundt cakes. Maybe it's the look of a bundt cake or maybe I just like to tell my husband I made a "bundt" cake. Remember that scene from "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" when the mother brings a bundt cake to their house. That part always makes me laugh. She ends up putting a flower in the center.

 

Well, I digress, back to my bundt cake. This one is made with coconut. My husband is not a big coconut fan, but he loved this cake. The cake is very moist and just heavenly. Can a cake be that - heavenly?


Eclectic Red Barn: Half Coconut Bundt Cake

Now, I am in awe of those of you that post such amazing food photos. Everything seems to be so thought out, arranged so nicely and looks beautiful. That is not the case with me. 
I have great intentions, but it seems that no matter when I cook or bake, I never have time to "set up". They always want to just "dig in".

I did get one picture of it before they cut it, but nothing fancy.

I guess I can't complain, at least they always enjoy what I make.

Here you can see all that gooey frosting on the plate and how fluffy the cake really is. You can toast the coconut, but I just sprinkled the coconut on top.

  3. This looks yummy! Hi Bev! I'm Colleen from Bakes and Blunders (www.bakesandblunders.com) and I found you through the Happiness is Homemade Link Party. I just made my first bundt cake and I get why you love them! I feel like bundt cakes are supposed to be just a tiny bit "rustic" looking, so you don't have to worry about the tiny details. I'd love if you could check out my site :)

  5. This looks delicious. I guess a tube pan would work just as well? I don't have a Bundt pan....

      A tube pan would work just fine. No need to get a bundt pan for this cake.
      Have a lovely day.

  10. That bunt cake looks so good and it reminds me of when I was young. My mom and I used to make lemon bunt cake and I actually still have the bunt pan from when I was a kid.

    This cake looks amazing! I would love to make this. Do you have any tips for me. MY Bundt cakes always stick and look ugly. Am I flipping too soon or too late? THANKS FOR SHARING -XO Lisa S

    1. Lisa,
      I use a spray but if it is sticking, you can use Crisco. I would also make sure to add flour. Is your pan new? Sometimes as they age, they can loose their coating.
      I like to tap the pan on the counter a few times to get it to release. It is better to wait a longer than to do it immediately. After you tap it, turn it upside down and let it sit on the plate, it should fall.
      Let me know how it goes.
      Bev
