Baked Dolly's Doughnut

The best part about this new year goal of baking all of the Baked Occasions cookbook recipes?  Sharing them with family!  This weekend we took a trip up to Gladwin and Midland.  Our travel companion?  A coconut bundt cake with a dark chocolate and coconut filling - deemed Dolly's Doughnut Cake.   Apparently Dolly Parton likes all things coconut,  and pink,  and sprinkle-y.

The coolest think about the cake was that it looked like a normal bundt cake,  but then when you cut it open. ..wala! Chocolate Filling! 
It was quite good and something different.  The white part of the cake was a bit dry and with 2 tablespoons of coconut extract,  I thought it should taste more coconut-y.  But alas,  it went over well and we were able to share it with extended family on both sides! 

Oh and then we came back downstate to 12+ inches of snow! 

5 recipes done.  65 to go.  Hello February!
