I was very very happy when I received Grumpy’s Honeybunch as my Secret Recipe Club assignment this month. Shelby was the first blog in the Secret Recipe Club that had made anything from Cookin’ Mimi and I thought it was rather special that I had her blog exactly a year later.
I had a very hard time deciding what to make. I’ve been making tons of stir fry recipes lately so her peppery beef with cabbage over noodles was a front runner for awhile.
Then when I got the idea I could make my parents co-birthday cake or cupcakes I had a hard time deciding if I should make the double maple cupcakes or German chocolate Bundt cake. After consulting with my mother, it was for her birthday after all, we decided the chocolate cake was the winner.
The changes I made the the recipe were to use semi-sweet chocolate instead of the German sweet chocolate and to dust the pan with cocoa powder instead of sugar like the recipe originally called for. The chocolate change is why I’m calling this a chocolate cake with pecans and coconut instead of a German chocolate Bundt cake.
