Coconut Almond Bundt Cake Recipe

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.


Ingredients:
1 box yellow cake mix
1 box (3.4 oz) instant white chocolate pudding mix
1 cup light sour cream
4 eggs
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

Directions:
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.

Yummers, this is the 2nd cake recipe today. I don't need much of a push to make desserts. I love my sweets, they just are catching up to me over the winter.

That sounds very good. I sometimes miss being able to eat cake, cookies and all the other treats I used to eat.

The boys got lucky on that one, better than buying junk at the store for sure.

MMM, I might have to add this to my domestic repertoire. But I'd need to double everything for my boys as this would not last a day in my house.

Coconut and almond? YUMMY!
Do you know that I can't ever hear/see bundt cake without thinking of that movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Did you see that one? So funny.

This does look good! I just made cookies for my husband on his last day of work for this Thursday. I still have to decorate them, and they'll go in the deep freezer until it's time to take them.

Oh, I can't look! Hubby is fasting for his colonoscopy tomorrow. It's been so hard cutting out eggs, dairy and yeast for him ,too.

Sounds dreamy! And the perfect antidote to mid-winter blues.

This sounds good to me. I'm having coffee right now, a slice of cake would be just perfect!

Harry Flashman said...

I can't eat cakes and such as I have to watch my weight but if I could, I'll bet I would devour that whole cake. It surely looks delicious.

April Lou said...

I really need to try this. I made my husband buy a bundt cake pan six years ago. I have yet to use it!

Sonya @ Under the Desert Sky said...

I'll bet your family really enjoyed it!

Coconut almond sounds even better than chocolate and not many things do.

Sounds delicious. Any dessert with coconut and almond flavor mixed with white chocolate pudding would be on my A-list. We'll be baking this weekend for Valentine's Day, but the goal is to give most of the brownies and cookies away...(since I virtually have negative will power to stay away...)
