Pina Colada Cake Recipe:
1 (15.25 ounce) yellow cake mix (I like the one with pudding in the mix)
1 (15 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained (save liquid)
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
8 ounces cream of coconut (sometimes found on mixed drink ingredients aisle)
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
Make cake in a 9 x 13 pan according to directions on the box. When cake is done, poke holes all over the top of the cake. I used the end of a wooden mixing spoon.
Mix pineapple juice reserved from crushed pineapple (about 1/2 cup), sweetened condensed milk, and coconut cream. Pour mixture over the top of the cake making sure the top is covered and try to pour it into the holes. Then let the cake cool completely. Top with drained, crushed pineapple. Then top with the sweetened whipped cream and flaked coconut. Directions below.
Sweetened Whipped Cream Ingredients:
2 cups whipping cream
8 Tablespoons powdered sugar
Directions for Whipped Cream:
Beat whipping cream and powdered sugar together until it starts to thicken. You’ll want it to be thick enough to stand on it’s own. Then spread over the crushed pineapple. Top with shredded coconut.
