The bundt cake turned out very tasty, nice and high with about 1/2 inch of macaroon which followed the dome shape of the pan about an inch from the top. The cake did not shrink after baking. The macaroon filling tasted great!! MODIFICATIONS: I finely ground the coconut and next time I make the cake, I will try making 1 1/2 batches of the macaroon filling and spooning it on top instead of in the middle. I'm trying to emulate Pilsbury's Bundt Choc./Macaroon cake(the filling stayed as a tunnel in the middle) that I don't believe is manufactured anymore: It used to be one of my favorites! I will definely bake it again. Rhonda Erickson, Wisconsin
