For the Chocolate Coconut Quick Bread
For the Swirl and Topping
For the Caramel:
  1. Heat the cream, butter, vanilla, and salt gently, in a small pot, until the butter is melted and the salt is dissolved.
  2. Heat the sugar, corn syrup, and water in a medium saucepan, swirling occasionally, until bubbling and amber-colored.
  3. Remove from the heat and whisk in the cream mixture until well combined. (Mixture will boil up vigorously. Continue to whisk until bubbling subsides and caramel is smooth.)

  4. Transfer to a heat-safe container and cool completely.

For the Chocolate Coconut Quick Bread:
  1. Combine the first 6 (dry) ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Stir in the remaining (wet) ingredients.
  3. Place half the mixture in the bottom of a greased 10-inch diameter bundt pan.

  4. Top with about a third of the caramel, and half the pecans and coconuts.
  5. Add the remaining batter and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.

  6. Cool completely.

Assemble the German Chocolate Bundt Cake:
  1. Turn the bundt out onto a serving plate, drizzle with the remaining caramel sauce, and top with the remaining pecans and coconut.
