This cake has so much awesome coconut flavour packed into it, so it would be perfect for people who love coconut flavour and anything tropical! It would make a great birthday cake for someone who loves coconut too, or maybe for a tropical themed party. It would even look pretty with some beautiful edible tropical flowers on top of it for added decoration and colour. Something like hibiscus flowers, or plumeria would look wonderful on it and they are in fact edible as well! This cake might also be great served with some fresh fruit on the side as well, for a little bit of freshness. It's always nice to have a different cake recipe on hand, for when you feel like having something that is not just the same plain Jane cake or treat. It's always fun to try out something new, and I think others will agree when they try a piece of your Coconut Bundt Cake with White Chocolate Coconut Glaze.
This Coconut Bundt Cake with White Chocolate Coconut Glaze, is similar to a pound cake recipe, in that it definitely has a lot of butter in it! Which would make the cake very moist, but a little bit on the heavy side. Then the coconut flavour comes naturally from the coconut milk, in the cake, and then in the chocolate coconut glaze. But it also has some added coconut extract as well, which would be where a lot of the flavour also comes from. You could also use coconut oil as a substitute for some of the butter perhaps, it might be something worth trying as it would be a healthier option and give some more coconut flavour! Coconut extract can be artificial sometimes, just like vanilla extract can be, so make sure you read the labels if you want the real deal. The real extract will say that it is 100% pure coconut extract and in the ingredients there will be only maybe a couple others. But if it says artificial, then it is fake. But if you don't mind using the artificial then of course, go ahead.
Bundt cakes are generally very easy to make, and a classic go to recipe for cakes. They are made in the bundt pan, which gives them their distinctive shape and style. The mould for the cakes was made popular in the 1950s and 1960s in American households, and came to the United States from Norway. They didn't sell well in Norway and they thought about not continuing to make them, and then Pillsbury company spread the word about them and made them popular in the US, through a recipe they showed making a cake in one. Now pretty much every kitchen in the world has a bundt cake pan! Try making one soon! Head over to 'Brown Eyed Baker' by following the link in the section below!
