Mounds Cake is a take on the popular candy bar of the same name. This Bundt cake version starts with a cake mix, mixes in candy and coconut to create a mouthwatering dessert that’s perfect for any occasion.

The first time I made this Mounds Cake recipe it was a hit. I wrote the recipe out on a recipe card and tucked it in my treasured recipe box. I promptly forgot about it for a few years.
It wasn’t until I was talking with a friend that I was reminded of it. I thought it would be a delicious dessert for Easter. I usually make my Rave Review Coconut Cake but my family wanted a change.
What Candy do I use for Mounds Cake?
For this cake, I used the regular size of Mounds candy bars. Less time to chop them up. Plus, snack-size is a little harder to find this time of year.
Although at Halloween, the smaller candy bars are abundant. If you need to use up some Mounds Easter eggs from those baskets using them to make this Mounds Bundt cake would be a good option.
I have a fair collection of Bundt pans but I love making this cake in my star Bundt pan. It really is one of my favorite pans that I own.
While you could put a glaze on it a dusting of powdered sugar is really all this cake needs. I use this pan for my Apple Harvest Pound Cake with Caramel Glaze too.
