Happy birthday to my sweet hubby!!
For the Cake
- One Chocolate Cake Mix- prepared according to box instructions
- (I have used German Chocolate or Devils Food)
For the Filling
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 cups flaked coconut
- 2 Tablespoons flour
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
For the Glaze
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- 2 Tablespoons Milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- For chocolate glaze you can add 2 Tablespoons of cocoa to the above mixture.
- (I glaze with both flavors. Because did I mention how good that puddle of icing in the middle is?!?!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray your bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Prepare cake mix as per box instructions. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, with a fork quickly mix egg whites. Add the sugar and vanilla and mix again. Stir in coconut and flour.
Pour about 1/2 of the cake mix into your bundt pan. (see photo in blog post) Now spoon filling in a "tunnel" on top of the batter. Be careful not to let the filling touch the pan. Now pour and evenly cover the tunnel with the rest of the batter.
Bake the cake for 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Cool in pan for 20-30 minutes and turn onto a plate to cool the rest of the way.
Drizzle with frosting if you desire.
