This bundt is rich and moist with the fresh flavors of oranges and coconut. Drizzled with a citrus infused glaze and toasted coconut, it is a slice of tropical heaven on a cold January afternoon.
Welcome to the first #BundtBakers of 2015. I am so pleased to be a part of this month’s event, especially since the theme was coconut – which happens to be one of my absolute favorites!
An orange coconut cake immediately came to mind. Within minutes, I had mapped out a recipe, though it took two tries to perfect it.
Well, it was well worth it. I know you will agree when you try it! Enjoy!
