How to Make Ring-of-Coconut Fudge Cake


  1. Generously grease and lightly flour a 10" bundt pan.
    Prepare filling and set aside. In a large mixing bowl combine sugar, oil and eggs; beat one min. at high speed. Add remaining ingred. except filling and nuts. Beat 3 min.at medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally . stir in nuts by hand. Pour 1/2 batter into prepared pan. Carefully spoon prepared filling over batter, top with remaining batter and bake 45-55 min. until top springs back when lightly touched in center.

    I have added a picture of a box of dry buttermilk mix I use, 1 packet=1 cup ~ saves buying a quart. It tastes the same too.
  2. Filling: In small bowl beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and egg until smooth, then stir in choc. chips and coconut.
    2c sour cream
    2c sugar
    1 1/2 c flaked coconut
    1 carton *8oz frozen whipped topping *thawed
    Mix together the sour cream, sugar and coconut with the whipped topping and spread on top and sides, or use a glaze of confectioners and milk and sprinkle with coconut.
