Reviews for Chocolate Coconut Bundt Cake
"BEWARE; When I took cake out of oven, the filling had fallen to the base of the pan ; since I made this for Christmas--and I am the Grnad'mere!!- It is now going to have to be called "pudding cake"!I am totally disappointed in this recipe...I wouldn't make it again..Maybe we'll get a laugh out of it at our annual family gathering!! (In the meantime I am making brownies just in case0"
"When I cut the cake, the coconut filling separated from the cake & I ended up with a lot of crumbs on the platter. It was tasty, but I probably wouldn't make it again."
"I was not happy with this cake at all, nor was anyone it was served to. Maybe i did something wrong, normalling I am a very good baker and love to bake. I just didn't like it."
"I haven't made it before but I have had it at a friend's house."
"I was disappointed, it looks better than it was. It was very dry and the filling was not great either. Sorry I didn't like it :("
"what do you do with the remainding condensed milk if you don't have an immediate use for it? can it be frozen?"
"I made this cake some time ago- it's missing something- I think it needs more coconut filling- my coconut filling sunk too. I am going to give it another try because I love coconut with chocolate"
"Excellent taste to this cake! Next time I am going to put only 1 1/2 cups of prepared cake mix in pan instead of the 3 cups, and then the coconut and the remaining mix. The coconut had sunk to the bottom of the cake by following the directions. I will definitely make this cake again!"
