sifted all-purpose flour

unsweetened cocoa powder
Delicious and moist.A cake for the true coconut lover.My family loved it!
I made this for work and the general consensus was that it was too dry...like the desert! It was time consuming and I, like the previous rater thought that there was not enough liquid in the recipe. I miss the Pillsbury version of this cake so I thought I'd make this but was disappointed. Next time, I would double the coconut part and use a box dark chocolate cake. The batter was so thick with this recipe that the coconut sat on top the whole time. Sorry, nothing good to say about this one.
In response to those who said the cake was too dry. I have this same recipe in my files, except mine calls for 3/4 cup water. So maybe that is the problem, it just needs more water.
Where did I go wrong? I made this for company and couldn't even serve it. It came out VERY dry. All the other ratings said it was so moist! When I was finished with the batter it seemed thick so I went back over the recipe and made sure I hadn't forgotten anything. That's when I started thinking that 1/4 cup liquid didn't seem like very much for a cake. Since I had not forgotten anything and the other reviews were so good I baked it anyway, but was very disappointed in the results. The batter was so thick the macaroon filling never dropped down into the cake batter.
The batter prepared according to the recipe seemed very dry indeed, so I gradually added more water until the consistency seemed right. I also "helped" the filling sink into the cake by saving some of the batter, scooping out a tunnel for the filling, and then covering it with the saved batter (as I had read in the Chocolate Tunnel Cake rcipe on this site). It turned out all right. I made one mistake though: I used sweetened coconut, which had a weird artficial flavor. Next time I'll make sure I use the non-sweetened kind.
Great cake! I was the 3rd time I cooked something, and it turned out great, my family loved it.
I thought this cake was pretty good. It was a little dry. The next time I make it, I will add a little more water and I will put the filling in the middle of the cake. The filling wouldn't go down in the cake because the batter was to thick. It set on the top and dried out while baking. The guys still liked it a lot!
I made this cake for a friends pool party. She HAD to have a chocolate macaroon bundt. It was a hit. Moist and delicious, it didn't last long. You know you have a hit when the kids are standing there eating it with their behinds wiggling the whole time and then being told, "this is happy food."
