The boys were complaining recently because we didn't have any homemade desserts in the house. I daresay they might be a bit spoiled in that regard. We eat very healthy, and get plenty of exercise, so there is really no reason to ever skip dessert.
I tossed together a new recipe, and it turned out to be so light and fluffy and flavorful. It starts with a cake mix, but you will never know it when you taste this cake! I had several requests on Instagram for it, so I knew I was going to have to share it on the blog.
1 box yellow cake mix
1 box (3.4 oz) instant white chocolate pudding mix
1 cup light sour cream
1 tsp. almond extract
1 tsp. coconut extract
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup milk (I used skim)
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 350*. Mix first 8 ingredients for 2-3 minutes, until well blended. Stir in coconut. Pour into greased bundt pan and bake for 55 minutes. Allow to cool 15 minutes before turning out on plate to cool completely.
This is wonderful topped with strawberries! Enjoy.
