A moist cake, reminiscent of the tropical drink for which it is named.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
- 1 (3.5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1 (14 ounce) can cream of coconut
- 1/2 cup rum
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 4 eggs
- 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
- 2 tablespoons rum
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F ( 175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch fluted or tube pan.
In large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, 1/2 cup coconut creme, 1/2 cup rum, oil, and eggs. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in pineapple. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 50 to 55 minutes. Cool 10 minutes. Remove from pan. With a table knife or skewer, poke holes about 1 inch apart in cake almost to bottom.
