Mint filled Coconut Vanilla Bundt cake #BundtBakers

As a part of Bundt Bakers, now I am regularly baking Bundts... Baking Bundts, is always fun.... After my Bundt is baked, I literally keep on looking at them, and becomes most of the time impatient to turn it on cooling rack... So that I can see how my Bundt is looking...

After couple of ,Bundts, I have learned it's not good to get impatient.. It's better to wait for few more minutes, than a cracked Bundt... This month our theme, is Girl Scout Cookies.... From the starting I knew, I wanted to use Thin Mint Cookies... I was playing with the couple of ideas like Mint Bundt CheeseCake and Mint Bundt Cake( where broken pieces of cookies are folded in the cake batter)... But, then I wanted to bake something different with these cookies...

So, I came up with an idea of making tunnel in my Bundt... Once, we are in the Tunnel, it's completely dark.... So, Thin Mints being dark were actually complementing my thoughts... After making the batter ready, I realized that I cannot make the tunnel with cookies from the lowest level... I need to have some cake batter below the cookies, to hold them... Since, I was baking with these cookies for the 1st time, I did not know how these cookies are going to behave while baking... Whether they are going to melt, or going to be in the same shape, as I have dropped in the batter... Well, I must say, I was quite happy with the results.. It did not actually got the effect of tunnel, but while my Kiddo was cutting this Bundt.. Got really happy and excited.... Mission accomplished....

Love that you used the cookies, Shilpi! This coconut bundt looks so moist and delicious.
Great job. The fact that you were brave enough to experiment by putting the cookies into the center to make a tunnel is evidence of your experience baking bundts.
