Chocolate Coconut Bundt Cake | #BundtaMonth

Chocolate Coconut Bundt Cake by Cravings of a Lunatic

There is nothing I like better than a tropical theme. Well unless you count actually being in the tropics. Since I'm stuck waiting out old man winter here in the cold Canuck climate I was thrilled when they announced the theme this month. I figure if you can't be in the tropics, then pretending to be is a close second. While I'd much rather be eating this cake in Hawaii being served Blue Hawaiians by a gorgeous pool boy, who if I'm lucky looks a lot like Timothy Olyphant, I'll have to … [Read more...]
