White Chocolate Coconut “Tom Cruise” Bundt Cake

Hi! Here my recipe for White Chocolate Coconut “Tom Cruise” Bundt Cake

For the Cake:

  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/4 cups plus 1 Tablespoon buttermilk
  • 1 cup plus 2 Tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups, plus 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour, sifted

For the Glaze:

  • 6 ounces sweet white chocolate
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, at room temperature
  • 3 cups sweetened flaked coconut

How to:

  1. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease and flour a 10-inch Bundt pan and set aside.
  3. The bowl of a stand mixer fitted with cream cheese, a whisk attachment, mix sugar, salt, baking soda, eggs, and egg yolk on low speed for about 1 minute.  Add the buttermilk, oil, and vanilla extract and mix on low again for another minute.
  4. Add the flour and mix on medium speed for 2 minutes.  The batter will be very loose.  Pour into the prepared cake pan and bake for 1 hour, or until a cake tester inserted in the cake comes out clean.
  5. Let the cake cool completely in the pan and then invert onto a cooling rack.
  6. To make the icing:  Chop the chocolate into small pieces, put them in a heatproof bowl (or a double boiler), and set the bowl over a pot of barely simmering water.  Be sure that the bottom of the bowl does not touch the boiling water.  Remove the bowl from the heat when all of the chocolate bits have melted.
  7. Melt the butter in a separate pan or the microwave.  Whisk the melted butter into the melted chocolate until thoroughly incorporated.  Sift in half of the powdered sugar.  Add the sour cream and whisk to combine.  Sift in the remaining powdered sugar and whisk until smooth.  The glaze should be thick and shiny.
  8. Pour the glaze over the Bundt cake, covering it completely. Sprinkle the coconut along the top of the cake. Leave at room temperature until ready to serve.
