I made this up from a combination of recipes - I used what I had on hand and the cake came out wonderful. I use the Kitchen-aid.
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1 cup Crisco
- 5 large eggs
- 2 cups cake flour
- 1 teaspoon coconut extract
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
- 3⁄4 cup water
- 2 1⁄3 cups powdered sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons coconut extract
- 3⁄4 cup flaked coconut
- 3⁄4 cup mini marshmallows
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Spray Bundt pan with non-stick baking spray.
- In a mixing bowl sift together: flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
- Cream together ( using the Kitchen-aid) sugar, Crisco, eggs and coconut extract.
- Add to egg mixture flour mix alternating with sour cream- use Kitchen-aid mixer on medium.
- Turn mixer to low and mix in coconut.
- Spoon into bundt pan.
- Bake for 40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean/top is brown--don't overbake.
- Take bundt pan with cake out of oven and set aside for 10 minutes.
- Make glaze- mix water, powdered sugar and coconut extract into saucepan over medium high flame- whisk constantly until sugar is dissolved then set aside.
- Poke holes in cake bottom and 1/3 of glaze into holes.
- Invert bundt pan onto plate, pour glaze over top then garnish with coconut (toasted) and mini marshmallows.
- Let cool completely before cutting.
