This is a recipe that I submitted to a Nordic Ware contest about 3 years ago. It did not win a monetary prize, but was included in a Nordic Ware cookbook (Best of the Bundt). This cake has a moist, dense yet tender crumb and has a delicious toasted coconut flavor. For the glaze, make sure you use the thick sweetened cream of coconut (that is the consistency of condensed milk).
