Chocolate, coconut cranberry bundt cake

I have so many whole cranberries in the freezer I'm always looking for something new to do with them.  This cake sounded really yummy.  I took this to my friends house one Saturday back in September when I went to her house for one of our crafting sessions.  I always try to bring some sort of treat because my friend really doesn't like to bake.

Adapted from the here

1.5 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 lemons -zest only
1/2 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups fresh cranberries -or dried (I used frozen whole and cooked down, then cooled")
oz dark chocholate -roughly, chopped (use what you like)
1 package  cream cheese -softened
3/4 cup coconut oil
1.25 cup sugar
1.5 tsp vanilla extract
3 eggs -
Pam Baking spray -for greasing pan

before the icing

  1. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, lemon zest, shredded coconut, salt, cranberries and chocolate. Lay to one side for later. Spray bundt pan with Pam. Preheat oven to 325F.
  2. In stand mixer, mix cream cheese and coconut oil until smooth and creamy, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add sugar to cream cheese mixture and blend until combined, about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add vanilla & coconut extract to mixture and blend about 30 seconds or so.
  5. Add eggs (one at a time) to mixture, blending each until just combined.
  6. Add flour mixture to cream cheese mixture, blending until just combined, about 1-2 minutes.
  7. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Bake about 60 minutes, or until wooden skewer comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan for about 30-40 minutes before removing to cool completely on wire rack. 
4 oz soft cream cheese
1/2 cp confectionery sugar (make as tart of sweet as you like)
2/3 TBL soft butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 TBL half n half

Combine above for icing, mix with electric mixer  and get to the consistency you like.

This was an easy and great cake to make.  Will probably make it again sometime.
Thanks for stopping by,  have a great week and Always Remember to Find the Time to DO ALL the things You L♥ve.
