We've been wanting to post this recipe for a long time now. We have made this cake several times, but we never got around to taking pictures of it. This is one of our favorite cakes. Lisa found the recipe on an italian website. We both love coconut and searched long and hard for a cake that would satisfy us. We have changed things here and there every time we made this cake and now, we have a recipe down that we are happy with. This cake is very moist because it has yogurt in it. It asks for coconut yogurt but in America, it's very hard to find plain coconut yogurt in the grocery stores. The coconut yogurt is AMAZING in Italy and that is really why we fell so in love with coconut in the first place. We used pina colada yogurt and found that it works well also. This cake is so simple to make and requires very little clean up too! You have to try it! The recipe is below.
Coconut bundt cake
1 container of coconut yogurt (or pina colada)
1 container of sugar
1 container of dehydrated coconut
1 container of corn oil
1 tsp coconut extract
3 containers of flour
1 Tbs Baking Powder
Pinch of salt
Zest of 1\2 a lemon
1 cup of mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix the eggs and yogurt in a large bowl. Then, one by one, mix in all the ingredients in the order they are listed. Once everything is mixed together, pour into a buttered bundt cake pan.
Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean!
Once the cake is cooled we usually just sift some powdered sugar over the cake and it's done!
