Easy Coconut Bundt Cake

*Hello, dear readers. This will be my last regular Saturday post. I may post something small here and there but for the most part my blog will be in snooze mode on the weekends. But don’t fear. I will still be on the internets. Feel free to stop by and say hi on Google+ or Twitter. I’m working on making a Facebook page for My Shiny Life and will let you know when it goes live. Have a lovely weekend!*

I am so grateful that I am able to stay at home with my girls. I love them dearly. But it’s not all rainbows and unicorns. This past week was a shining example of that.

It was one of those weeks when I wish I had Captain Jack Harkness’ vortex manipulator. My girls misbehaved. I yelled. They talked back. I yelled. They didn’t listen. I yelled.

All that yelling made my head hurt. And the permanent knots in my back got tighter.

Sometimes I just want to scream “CUSS!” at the top of my lungs. But I don’t.

Instead I make sweets for all of you. You’re welcome.

Easy Coconut Bundt Cake

  • 2 cups powdered sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Spray a Bundt® pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, add cake mix, coconut milk, oil, and eggs. With a hand mixer or whisk, beat for about 2 minutes. Fold in coconut flakes.

  1. I had a day like that with my oldest today….must be going around! The cake looks great though. I adore all thing coconut, and my coconut cake is a project (though worth it). Yours looks great AND easy…YES! Have a peaceful evening.

    1. Thanks! Sometimes it’s really tough being a parent. But the great things about being one heavily outweigh all that other stuff. Have a lovely weekend! 🙂
