Bundt cakes are so yummy and they are even yummier when they are made in a Bundt pan. Isn’t this pumpkin coconut pecan bundt the prettiest thing you’ve ever seen? Oh, and guess what? It tastes just as good as it looks 🙂 I like to make Bundt cakes for church potlucks and other group get-togethers. it’s rare that someone doesn’t like them. You can make bundt or pound cakes out of many different flavor combinations. This coconut pumpkin happens to be one of my favorites.
