Pineapple Coconut Bundt Cake Recipe

Steph is finally back from her honeymoon in Hawaii.  I missed her so much while she was gone that I thought I would bring a little island flavor to my home. 🙂

It may not be as good as a trip to Hawaii, but this cake is the next best thing!  It is so moist and flavorful you’ll forget your just in your kitchen!

    • I used the recipe on the cake box mix with the eggs and oil but eliminated the water. The can of pineapple had enough liquid. I added 1/4 cup all purpose flour to the batter. I did not need a glaze. The result was a cake so moist and perfectly composed. I baked in a dark coated bundt pan for 40 minutes at 325F. Make sure you coat the bundt pan with flour after using a cooking spray.
  1. K....I had to read the recipe several times - no eggs, no oil, no water as on the box instructions!!! I just couldn't bring myself to eliminate the above so I went ahead and included the ingredients required on the box then added the pineapple & coconut....moist & good. Makes a great "base cake"! I wouldn't make again....too many other great bundt/cake recipes out there! Sorry!!!

    ok....I need a cake for my church picnic, "Cake Walk".....and want to try this. Coconut Pineapple Bundt and I too, am leary about no eggs, oil, etc. I know you said, just follow the directions. ...but this scares me, will this cake rise to a height where I will not be embarrassed to show it? I love bundt cakes, and if you could instruct me as to how many eggs and oil, etc. I would love to try this.

      If you are too nervous to make this and take to a church party, our sister site has so many bundt cakes. Just go to the site and type in Bundt in the search bar. About one hundred delicious bundt recipes will come up. Here is one that is similar and very delicious -
  3. TOTAL DISASTER! I've never made a bad cake in my life (I'm 71), until now. I followed the directions exactly including cooling in the pan for 90 min. It stuck to the pan, it broke apart when I finally got it out and it tasted terrible, you couldn't taste the pineapple or the coconut, just tasted bad. I'm so disappointed! Thank goodness I have enough time to bake another (different cake) before I head out to the party.
    • We include the cake cooling time in the prep time. Some people will make a recipe knowing they have a certain block of time from beginning of recipe to the finished dish. So it really takes a few minutes to make, the rest of the prep time is waiting for the cake to cool.
