This was a great cake! I have been looking for a recipe that would recreate the old coconut macaroon tunnel cake they used to sell in the store as a mix and this was even better than we remembered. I used a triple chocolate cake mix and it turned out great! Yummm! Read More

I made this cake for a work party of my husband's that I wasn't able to go to. I often send cakes to work with him so I was specifically asked to make a 'chocolate macaroon cake.' The only problem I had with the cake was that it started to rise too fast and furiously and I almost lost it over the top of my pan. I turned the oven down to 325 (which is what I usually bake cakes at anyway) and it calmed down enough to stay put. For the glaze I melted prepared chocolate frosting and added coconut and almond flavoring.I garnished the cake with toasted coconut and chopped toasted almonds. The verdict: H reported back that the cake was "awesome" and "better than the macaroon cake from Larry's Market Bakery." So thanks! Read More

This was just fabulous! I made it for my boyfriend's birthday and he just loved it! He is a big fan of Almond Joy and Mounds bars and couldn't figure out how I got a cake to taste like them! Read More

Just something I came up with for the filling to make it much easier and it is so good. Mix 3 cups of coconut 1 can sweetened condensed milk and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Read More

I made this for my daughter's birthday & it did not disappoint. This brought back memories of the bundt cakes I had as a child...I omitted the pudding by using a cake mix with the pudding already in it & it turned out great...I also made a glaze of 2 cups icing sugar 1 Tbsp.butter 2 Tbsp. milk 1 tsp. vanilla & 2 Tbsp. cocoa..

It was a little dry. The coconut filling texture wasn't quite right with flaked coconut. If the coconut was shredded finer I think this would have worked a lot better. Also I would not flour the pan again greasing the pan with shortening is sufficient. Read More

This is like eating an Almond Joy bar very distinctive and good if you like coconut. I didn't have time to give it the recipe frosting but put a vanilla one on for a birthday cake and it looked and tasted very good. Be sure to use a moist coconut. Mine was too dry. I also would lower the cooking time and/or watch the oven temp since it's such a heavy cake it could go dry easily. We scarfed this big cake down in 24 hours. A little too good! Read More
