Ready In:
1hr 30mins
1 cake




  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. Generously coat a Bundt pan with baking spray. Set it upside down on paper towel.
  • Combine the melted chocolate and remaining cake ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Beat on medium speed until well mixed, 3 to 4 minutes. Place about 2/3 of batter in prepared Bundt pan. Set remainder aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and melted chocolate; stir in marshmallow creme, pecans, and graham crackers. Spoon filling over center of batter in pan without letting it touch the sides. Spoon the reserved batter over the filling.
  • Bake for 60 to 70 minutes, until cake tests done. Cool upright in pan for 20 minutes; turn carefully onto a cooling rack, and let it cool completely.
  • To make frosting, measure confectioners' sugar, butter, vanilla, and 2 cups marshmallow crème in a bowl. Stir until smooth. Stir in remaining marshmallow crème until smooth.
  • Spread some frosting into the indentations of Bundt cake. Sprinkle frosted sections with coconut. Spread the remaining frosting over a round serving platter and sprinkle with shredded coconut. Place cake in center of platter. Decorate cake with red and green candies if desired. Serve in slices with a dollop of the coconut frosting from the serving plate under the cake.

  1. Had friends over for a ham dinner and this absolutely delicious cake was served for dessert. Went light on the icing, a personal preference. Made for New Kids on the Block, a tag game.


<p>First about Buster: Buster moved onto whatever comes next on February 26, 2008. He was just shy of five years old. I miss him terribly. <br />He came into our lives when he ran out in front of my car late one night as I was driving home. A just under 4 pound ball of kitten fluff, complete with an ostrich boa tail that stayed straight up as he assessed his new domain. He became a 19 pound longhaired beast who guarded our house (he followed any new guests or servicepeople the entire time they are on the property) &amp; even killed copperheads (among other things with his hunting buddy, Fergus the short-tailed)! Friends never saw his formidible side as he smiled at them &amp; uttered the most incongruent kitten-like mews as he threaded legs! He liked to ride in the car &amp; came to the beach. <br />There are Buster-approved recipes in my offerings - however, HE decided which he wanted to consider - Buster demonstrated he liked pumpkin anything - ALOT -LOL!!! <br /> <br />Copperhead count 2006 - Buster 2 <br /> (10 inchers w/yellow tails) <br /> 2007 - Buster &amp; Roxie 1 <br /> (a 24 incher!) <br />Buster woken from beauty sleep - <br />http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/62264/DSCN0335.JPG <br />Big whiskers - <br />http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/62264/DSCN0333.JPG <br /> <br />For those of you who gave kind condolences - thank you so very much. <br />http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=250301 <br /> <br /> <br />I love to cook &amp; incorporate techniques from Southern/Mid Atlantic roots (grits, eastern NC BBQ shoulders, Brunswick stew, steamed crabs &amp; shrimp &amp; shellfish, hushpuppies, cornbread, greens, shad roe, scrapple) with Pacific Rim foods &amp; techniques aquired while living in Pacific Northwest, fish &amp; game recipes learned while living in Rocky Mountain region &amp; foods/techniques learned travelling to the Big Island &amp; up into BC &amp; Alberta &amp; into the Caribbean. The Middle Eastern/African likes I have are remnants of my parents who lived for many years in North Africa &amp; Mediterranean before I was thought of. Makes for wide open cooking! <br /> <br />Since moving back east we try to go annually in the deep winter to Montreal (Old Montreal auberges &amp; La Reine) &amp; Quebec City (Winter Carnival &amp; Chateau Frontenac)- for unctuous foie gras &amp; real cheeses, French &amp; Canadian meals prepared &amp; served exquisitely, fantastic music &amp; wonderful people - with the cold helping burn off some of the calories! <br /> <br />I love putting in our aluminum jonboat &amp; heading across the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) to the barrier islands for foraging &amp; exploring! Bodysurfing is a lifelong sport for me - one that a person's body never seems to forget how to do, once the knack is learned (thank goodness!) <br /> <br />I especially miss cool summers &amp; foggy/drizzly days &amp; fall mushroom foraging/anytime of year hot springing in WA, OR, MT, ID, BC &amp; Alberta.</p>
