You just have to try these amazing bundt cakes. I've fallen in love with date brownie since I saw it and after first bite I knew it will be my new addiction.
They are rich, moist and very chocolaty and they so well with this creamy, velvety coconut filling. Topping them with fresh raspberries gives a nice, tangy touch to them.
I can assure you- once you bake these little beauties you will look for an occassion to make them again.
If you don't have the bundt cakes forms you can easily bake the in a regular muffin cups. To fill them with coconut cream just scoop out a bit of baked muffin to get a small hole.
