Original recipe yields 1 10-inch bundt cake

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 10-inch bundt pan.
  2. To Make Filling: Beat egg white with 1 teaspoon vanilla until soft mounds form. Add 1/2 cup sugar gradually, beating until stiff peaks form. Stir in coconut and 1 tablespoon flour. Set filling aside.
  3. Dissolve the cocoa in the hot coffee. Separate the three eggs, setting the yolks aside. Beat the egg whites until soft mounds form. Gradually beat in 1/2 cup sugar until meringue stands in medium-stiff peaks.
  4. Combine the sour cream and the baking soda. Beat remaining 1 1/4 cups of the sugar, shortening, egg yolks, salt, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1/2 of the of the cocoa mixture until light and creamy, about 4 minutes. Stir in 2 cups flour, the sour cream mixture, and the remaining cocoa mixture; blend well.
  5. Fold about 1/3 of the beaten egg whites into the batter to lighten it; gently fold in remaining egg whites.
  6. Turn 1/2 of the chocolate batter into the prepared pan. Place 1/2 of the coconut mixture on top. Cover with the remaining chocolate batter, then the remaining coconut mixture.
  7. Bake in preheated oven until a tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, 55 to 65 minutes. Let cake cool completely before removing from pan and icing.
  8. To Make Icing: Combine 2 cups sugar and 1/4 cup cocoa powder; transfer to a saucepan. Add butter, corn syrup, and milk. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring frequently, and let boil for 1 minute. Do not overcook! Remove from heat, let cool, and stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat icing until it is at a soft, spreading consistency; glaze cake.

I was looking for a macaroon filling to use with a chocolate cake mix and this filling did work wonderfully with a box mix. I, like several other reviewers miss the old Bundt Cake mixes. I have to say this will make you forget your yearning! Cathy's filling and your easy-to-do cake mix will create an awesome cake. Use the Chocolate Glaze I submitted by Jennifer to make the perfect topping for this dessert. This is a "heavy duty" glaze---a full-bodied, flavorful change from the powdered sugar glaze I usually make.

This is a great cake. It is similar to the old chocolate macaroon Bundt mix, but it's better. I have gotten rave reviews when I've made this. It's now my husband's favorite cake!

Oh, wow. Absolutely amazing. For the cake the only change I made was substituting 1/4 cup potato starch for 1/4 cup of the flour--it gives it a denser, moister texture. Used unsweetened coconut in the filling mixture, and put all the coconut in on top of the first half of the chocolate batter, then added the rest of the chocolate batter, so it gives it a tunnel-of-coconut effect. (I found it worked best to sort of mold the coconut mixture into a rope, and lay it on top of the batter--it's sticky and clumpy and hard to spoon.) Instead of the frosting, I made a glaze by heating 3/4 cup heavy cream and adding 6 oz bittersweet chocolate, then cooling to 90 degrees and pouring it over the top of the cake.
