1/2
cup flaked coconut

  1. Heat oven to 325°F. Generously grease and lightly flour shaped (12-cup) Bundt® pan and bottom of Bundt® Tunnel Insert, or spray with baking spray with flour.
  2. In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in 1/2 cup coconut. Pour batter into pan. Place tunnel insert on center of Bundt pan.
