Recipe as requested.



Unless you are a major chocoholic, skip the chocolate glaze and either make it without the cocoa, using a bit more 10X sugar, or just a dusting of 10X sugar.



FILLING
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1 cup semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips



CAKE
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
2 eggs
3 cups All-Purpose or Unbleached Flour (lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off)
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup hot coffee or water, use the coffee unless you have reason not to, deepens the chocolate flavor
1 cup buttermilk or sour milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts, I use pecans



GLAZE
1 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 to 3 tablespoons hot water


INSTRUCTIONS:



For Filling: Beat sugar, vanilla, cream cheese and egg until smooth. Stir in coconut and chocolate chips; set aside.



For Cake: In large bowl combine sugar, oil and eggs. Beat 1 minute at high speed. Add remaining cake ingredients, except nuts; beat 3 minutes at medium speed. By hand, stir in nuts.
Pour 3 cups batter into well greased and floured 12-cup fluted bundt pan. Carefully spoon filling over batter; top with remaining batter. Bake at 350º (325º for colored fluted bundt pan) for 70-75 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool upright in pan for 45 minutes; turn onto serving plate. Cool completely; drizzle with Glaze. Refrigerate.


For Glaze: Combine ingredients and mix until smooth.

Thank you, but I haven't made this in quite a while. Just mentioned it in a post and was asked for the recipe.

Thanks for this! Seems like quite a large cake? And yeah, I'm definitely a chocoholic!

I couldn't count how many bundt pans I've passed on in the local resale shops, probably won't see one for months now. I'll have to find some dimensions for a 12 cupper so I know what I'm looking for.

You got my attention in that post with "deep, dark chocolate"

I'm guessing it's not an overly sweet cake? I do love dessert but I like chocolate in the 65% and up cacao content range.

The cake itself isn't that sweet, but the filling is fairly sweet/rich if I remember correctly, it's been a while.

That looks like my favorite cake recipe. I haven't made that for years and years, but is is a gorgeous cake and I second this recipe as a good one. That coffee is a very nice addition to the cake.



My memory says I got this out of the Sunday food section of the local newspaper along about 1975.

I remember first having it as a young teen, so early to mid 70s would be about right.

I'm going to try it for my DH's B'day. It sounds wonderfully decadent.

It reminds me of the Tunnel of Fudge cake from one of the old Pillsbury Bake Off cookbooks from the 60s.
