Pina Colada Cake

If you like Pina Coladas, you'll love this cake. It's a good party cake without being overly sweet. Yummy!

1 Betty Crocker SuperMoist Cherry Chip Cake Mix
1 1/4 cups water or milk
1/3 cup veg oil
3 eggs

1 package JELL-O Instant Vanilla Pudding
2 cups milk
1 package cream cheese, softened (250 g)
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 can crushed pineapple (540 ml / 19 fl oz), drained

1/2 cup toasted coconut (sweetened, shredded)

- Prepare pudding as per directions on box, set aside in fridge.
- Bake cake as per directions on box, in 9x13 pan.
- Prepare topping by creaming together cream cheese and icing sugar, then adding in pudding and pineapple.
- Once cake has cooled, cover with topping and sprinkle toasted coconut on top.


  1. This looks so good and easy too, I love that!

  2. Yum- a pina colada in a cake- how awesome is that!

  3. What a cool idea! I'd never thought of using pudding in an icing!

  4. That does look good. Very moist. Thanks for sharing it (though now I have that song in my head!).

  5. What a fantastic idea! This is a MUST TRY!

  6. An easy to prepare but yummy summery dessert! Love the frosting recipe!

  7. @Koci: I love using pudding as a cake topping.. not as sweet as icing! :)

  8. Pina Colada in cake form?! What am I missing!

  9. Just went to make this have 1 1/4 c. milk listed for cake batter. Pkg. says water. Could please clarify? THX

  10. @Anonymous You can use either water (as per box) or milk. I prefer milk because it makes the cake it a little richer and moister.

    Thanks for pointing this out. I'll update and clarify on the post!


  11. This looks wonderful! You cannot go wrong with coconut.
