Chocolate Bundt With Coconut Cream Cheese Filling #BundtAMonth

As I have gotten older, my tastes have changed from craving salty, crunchy snacks, to anything sweet. I have been enjoying letting my inner baker come out once in a while. My favorite thing to bake lately has been bundt cakes with the #BundtAMonth crew. We are given a theme for the month, and then we all go to town to come up with an awesome bundt cake.

This month’s theme was tropical. When I think about tropical, palm trees, coconuts, and pina colada drinks with little umbrellas, come to mind. I decided to go with coconut, but take it a step further. What resulted was this decadent Chocolate Bundt with Coconut Cream Cheese Filling.

This cake was a unique combination of two recipes, and a little bit of modification from me. Baking is a science, so I try and stick as close to a recipe as possible. I have found my “wing it” attitude while cooking, does not work well with baking.

I started with the chocolate cake mixture from my Chocolate Peanut Butter Layered Bundt Cake. This batter is not overly sweet, but has a great fudgy texture (almost like brownies) when baked. Then I sweetened up the cream cheese filling recipe I found HERE From Vanilla Sugar Blog.  I also used a great suggestion from Vanilla Sugar Blog to use a mini cookie scoop for placing the filling in the pan.  I ended up with an awesome tunnel of coconut cream cheese filling through the whole cake.

Of course with my love of sweets, I end up taking the majority of any baked good to the office.  Personally, I don’t think my coworkers mind too much. :-)

If coconut isn’t your first choice when you dream of tropical vacations, then you should head on over to check out all the other fabulous tropical themed bundt cakes for this month’s #BundAMonth round up!

      WOW! Thank you for catching that error. I usually copy and paste from my previous bundt recipes for the easy glaze I use. That one was from the Chocolate Peanut Butter filled bundt. The cakes are very similar in process, in fact, I even use the same chocolate batter for both, since I love the finished flavor and texture. I have updated the recipe. I appreciate you letting me know. :-)
