COCONUT & BANANA BUNDT CAKE #BUNDTBAKERS

Yield: 1 Bundt Cake

Delicious!

Delicious!

The busy period at work is finally over (sorta) so I have finally been able to get back into my baking and what better way than this month’s bundt challenge from the ‘Bundt Bakers’ group. Our theme for the month: Coconut!  Whilst I like coconut I sometimes feel that it can be too dry at times so I thought I would use coconut milk in the cake batter and Malibu (Coconut Rum) in the glaze.

The cake itself if fantastically moist with the combination of banana and coconut milk and they blend together without overpowering each other. If you want substitute the vanilla bean paste with a tablespoon of vanilla extract. I am sure you will enjoy this cake as much as I do!

A big shout out to my new Bundt Baking friends and especially to Terri Truscello Miller at http://loveandconfections.blogspot.com/ for hosting this month’s event.

  7. I often find coconut can be a bit dry too, good idea to use coconut milk in the cake and for the glaze too, your cake sounds great.
