  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter or 1 stick or 8 tablespoons softened
  • 3/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut

Chocolate Drizzle:

  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 3 tablespoons 100% cocoa powder
  • 1 1/3 cups powdered sugar

  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl.  Set aside.  Cream butter, sugar and eggs with a mixer.  Combine with flour mixture along with vanilla and buttermilk.
  • Mix until all ingredients are wet.  Fold in coconut, chocolate chips and nuts with a spoon.  Spray a 10 inch bundt pan with cooking spray.  Pour in batter and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes.
