Coconut bundt cake

coconut bundt cake

I admit, I love baking. I try to deny it. I try to convince myself that I love cooking as much as baking, but it’s simply not true. I look for opportunities to bake. This coconut bundt cake was made for New Year’s Eve meeting. We had a lot of food we could take, but I really craved a simple, yet delicious cake.
And one more confession – I love bare cakes, no icing. I know sometimes it’s delicious, but I feel better when I take a second slice with no icing. There is less guilt and to be fair most of  cakes is delicious on it’s own, so why to make everything more complicated with yet another layer. Of course if you love icing, or you  like pretty cakes just cover it either with simple or white chocolate icing.

    Great recipe!,
    Easy and delicious, after a few hours, the flavour of the coconut grows in the cake. I’ve covered it with dark chocolate, my kids are still licking their fingers.

    Very nice blog, thank you for sharing!
