Deep Dark Chocolate Coconut Cake

One 7-ounce bag sweetened shredded
coconut (2 cups), finely chopped
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 large egg white
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
Scant 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Scant 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks (6 ounces) unsalted
butter, softened
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
3 large eggs
3 ounces bittersweet or semisweet
chocolate, melted and cooled
2 1/4 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups plain nonfat yogurt

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1. Make the Cake: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour an 8-cup Bundt pan. In a small bowl, mix the chopped coconut with the condensed milk and egg white. Transfer the coconut mixture to a large
sheet of plastic wrap. Using your hands, roll the coconut into an 18-inch rope. Wrap and refrigerate until slightly firm, at least 20 minutes.
2. In another small bowl, sift the flour with the cocoa, baking powder,
baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the
butter until creamy. Add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add
the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the melted
chocolate and the vanilla and beat until the batter is smooth. Beat in
the dry ingredients in 3 batches, alternating with the yogurt.
3. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the surface. Unwrap the coconut rope and join the ends to form a circle. Lay the coconut rope
on the cake batter, centering it in the pan. Press the coconut into the batter until it is submerged in 1 inch of batter. Bake the cake for 1 hour, or until
a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for
10 minutes, then invert onto a rack to cool completely.
4. Make the glaze: In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar and water
and bring to a boil; stir to dissolve the sugar. Whisk in the cocoa and
vanilla and let cool. Brush a thin layer of the glaze over the cake and let
dry slightly. Repeat 3 more times, letting the glaze dry slightly before  brushing the cake again. Refrigerate until the glaze is set and slightly
cracked before serving.
