Piña Colada Cake

Servings: 14

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Cook Time: 1 Hour


  • 1 box yellow cake mix

  • 1 3.5oz package instant coconut or vanilla pudding mix

  • 1 8oz can crushed pineapple in juice undrained – 4 tablespoons reserved

  • 1/2 cup rum or water

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil

  • 3 eggs

  • 1 teaspoons pineapple, coconut or rum extract

  • 1 16 oz tub cool whipped topping

  • 1/4 cup flaked coconut toasted

  • 1/2 cup rum optional* See Note


Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Grease and lightly flour bottoms and sides of two 8- or 9-inch round cake pans or bottom only of 13×9-inch pan.

In large bowl, beat cake mix, pudding mix, pineapple, rum/water, oil, eggs and 1 teaspoon of the rum extract with electric mixer on low speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally (do not overbeat). Pour into pan(s).

Bake as directed on box. For rounds, cool 10 minutes. Run knife around sides of pans to loosen cakes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Cool 13×9 in pan.

Place 1 cake layer, rounded side down, on serving plate. Spread with 1/3 cup cool whipped topping. Top with second layer, rounded side up. Frost side and top of cake with remaining cool whip; sprinkle with toasted coconut.

For 13×9, frost top of cake with frosting; sprinkle with toasted coconut. Store loosely covered.

"Drizzle 1/2 cup of additional run over cake sponge layers before frosting for an extra special tropical treat! You can omit extra rum."
