Serves: 6
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 55 minutes
Cooking spray
3⁄4 c sifted cake flour
1⁄3 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1⁄2 c plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1 t baking soda
1⁄4 t salt
2 egg yolks
1⁄3 c cold water
2 T vegetable oil
4 egg whites, at room temperature
1⁄3 c bittersweet chocolate chips
1⁄4 t cream of Tartar
2 T butter
1 T shredded sweetened coconut, toasted
Preheat oven to 350°F.

Lightly spray mini Bundt cake molds with cooking spray. In a bowl, combine flour, cocoa, sugar, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate bowl, whisk egg yolks, water, and oil until well blended. Whisk in about one-third of the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Add another third of the flour mixture and whisk again. Add remaining mixture and whisk until just combined.

In a large clean bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer on high speed until foamy. Add cream of tartar and beat on high speed until stiff peaks form. Stir a quarter of the egg whites into batter. Gently fold remaining egg whites into batter until just blended and no white streaks are visible.

Evenly divide batter into prepared Bundt cake molds. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into center comes out clean. Set mold on rack to cool for about 10 minutes. Using a small metal spatula, gently loosen edge of cakes. Turn cakes onto rack and cool completely.

In a small saucepan, heat the chocolate chips and butter over medium-low, stirring frequently, for about 1 to 2 minutes or until just melted and mixture is smooth. Remove pan from heat. Drizzle about 2 teaspoons on each coconut-chocolate mini Bundt cake. Sprinkle about ½ teaspoon coconut on each cake.
