  • 3/4 cup coconut
  • 1/2 cup​ chocolate chips
  • 2 cups​ flour
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 reserved egg yolk
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter (softened)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 3 to 4 tbsp. milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a 12" bundt pan (nonstick too) with a nonstick baking spray containing flour and set aside.

  2. In a small bowl, beat egg white until foamy. Gradually beat in 1/4 cup sugar until stiff peaks form. Fold in coconut, 1 tbsp. flour, 1 tsp. vanilla, and chocolate chips. Set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, place 2 cups flour, 1 1/4 cups sugar, brown sugar, cocoa, salt, baking soda, 2 tsp. vanilla, 3 eggs, 1 egg yolk, milk, butter, and sour cream. With the same beaters, mix this batter on low until combined, then beat on medium-high for 3 minutes.

  4. Spoon one-third of the cake batter into the prepared pan. Drop half of the coconut filling by teaspoons in the center of the batter, keeping the filling away from the edges of the pan. Cover filling with one-third of the remaining cake batter and top with the rest of the coconut filling. Carefully cover the coconut filling with the rest of the batter and spread evenly to cover.

  5. Bake the cake at 350 F for 55 to 65 minutes until the cake is set, edges start pulling away from the pan, and a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then loosen edges and invert cake onto a serving plate. Cool completely.

Chocolate Glaze

  1. In a medium saucepan, melt 1/4 cup butter. Add the powdered sugar, 2 tbsp. cocoa powder, milk, and vanilla.

  2. Remove pan from heat, and beat with wire whisk until blended and creamy.

  3. Add more milk or powdered sugar, as needed, to reach desired spreading consistency.

  4. Spoon the glaze over the cake, letting it run down the sides. Store covered at room temperature.
