I do a lot of scratch baking! My friends are always apologizing for using a boxed mix. I keep saying stop, I definitely use box mixes a lot. I just don’t tell anyone! Sssh, don’t tell them, please! What I do though, is doctor up box cake recipes to look like a from scratch recipe! Thus we have today’s Chocolate Coconut Cream Cheese Bundt Cake! It is absolutely one of my most favorite no-brainer recipes and it is super delicious!
I don’t know many people who doesn’t love chocolate! I truly enjoy a tasty chocolate snack! Anyone who has been following along with me knows my philosophy, moderation! I believe in eating healthy and eating a well balanced variety of food! That is what works wonderfully for me and my family! We also enjoy dessert! As I have often said, I am a cook who enjoys baking but cooking is way easier for me to bake also! I do love to scratch cook a dessert because of the satisfaction of finally figuring out the calculations of ingredients. Realistically, I do not always have time for that, especially when I have a list of non-dessert that need to be created! Thus we have this amazingly delicious Chocolate Coconut Cream Cheese Bundt Cake!
Making Chocolate Coconut Cream Cheese Bundt Cake:
- For a quickie dessert, this is a go-to using a Devil’s Food boxed cake mix.
- If you have time, using your preferred chocolate cake recipe works well.
- I use low-fat cream cheese to cut down on calories. Don’t use fat-free it does not bake well.
- the cream cheese center is a yummy blend of cream cheese, chocolate chips, and unsweetened coconut, yum.
I used each of these wonderful product in the making of my fabulous dessert, Chocolate Coconut Cream Cheese Bundt Cake!
