Coconut Caramel Samoas Bundt Cake #Bundtbakers

Coconut Caramel Samoas Bundt cake

 

A long time ago, when one of my neighbors decided to lead and manage a Girls Scouts troop, I was over the moon. Yes! You read that right! “I” was over the moon. My daughter had no idea she was going to be a Girl Scout. Her mom had made the decision that she was going to be and that was that.

Since I was then a recent transplant from India, I found the Girl Scouting culture fascinating and empowering. It was something I never got to do as a young girl and I wanted to have my daughter the opportunity to be a part of something amazing and make wonderful friends.

So she joined and started as a brownie and then continued until she was a Cadette. Then we moved and she didn’t feel like making new Girl Scout friends at the new place. Making new friends in school was taxing enough. But the journey from being a brownie to a cadette was full of exploration, learning and forming of bonds. The camps were fun and she was always full of interesting tales to tell us. And the best part of it all was the Girl Scout cookies.

The way the girls negotiated who will sell in which area of the neighborhood, discussed where all they could sell the cookies and chose their hometown heroes and decided what activities to do with the money raised was always a tear jerker. We could see them growing up into wonderful young ladies and developing life long skills of communication, leadership, negotiations and traits like respect and honor.

Was I thrilled with this month’s theme for Bundt Bakers? I was so excited that it was just difficult to pick only one flavor. Finally I picked my daughter’s favorite Girl Scout Cookie – The samoas and made the Coconut Caramel Samoas Bundt Cake.

Always loved samoas! My 2nd favorite Girl Scout cookie (thin mints are my favorite). So a slice of this wonderful looking bundt would be welcome on my plate! Good recipe, really fun story. Thanks.

I was a Brownie from the first day I was old enough and I went off to camp with the big girls because my mother was a troop leader too. I loved every minute of it. My mother never made a cake as good as this one though!

I had to call a friend over to look at my computer just now because I LOVE YOUR BUNDT! It’s a perfect big samoa! I’m so glad to hear that you pushed your daughter into scouts because my younger daughter had to be coerced into the first couple of meetings at six years old. Then she went very willingly! Mother knows best, right?
