Rum-Pineapple Pound Cake


"A rich, tasty dessert made with a cake mix and added ingredients from your cupboard to make an unforgettable melt in your mouth pound cake that will remind you of a pina colada because of the pineapple flavored cake, the rum glaze that soaks partially into the cake and glazes over the top and sides, and the toasted coconut that tops it all off!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 12 cup Bundt pan with shortening, dust with flour, and shake out excess. Place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
  2. Cream together butter and oil in a large mixing bowl until fluffy, about 1 minute. Slowly pour in 1 cup of sugar and continue to beat until fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in eggs one at a time, beating for about 10 seconds per egg. Stir in cake mix and blend until smooth. Add the sour cream, evaporated milk, flour, and vanilla; beat together for 2 to 3 minutes until smooth.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until cake has a golden brown crust and springs back when pressed with a finger, about 60 to 70 minutes. Let cake sit in the pan for 20 minutes while proceeding to the next step.
  4. Melt 1/2 cup of butter in a small pan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar, and 1/2 cup of sugar; bring to a gentle simmer and stir in the rum. Cook until the sugars have dissolved, then remove from heat. Unmold cake onto a serving dish. Gently poke holes into the cake with a fork or cake tester. Pour glaze evenly over cake. Top with toasted coconut.

I made this and it was FABULOUS. I am considering making this with other mixes such as Lemon Supreme. I understand the confusion with the 'glaze', they called it something it is NOT. This t...

The cake part of this came out fine. An interesting way to treat a cake mix. But I fear there is something wrong with the recipe for the glaze. Is it really "1 cup of rum"? I prepared it as ...

I used yellow cake mix,added about a cup of pineapple tidbits and added about a half cup of rum to the cake mix. It was wonderful!

The only thing I would stress is to make multiple holes with a wooden skewer so that the rum is evenly distributed. The more rum taste in every bite the better.

I made this for a fourth of july party, and it tasted okay. Everyone who had it felt there wasnt enough rum taste inside the cake, and too much in the bottom. If I make it again, I might make it...

Wonderful cake, I let the glaze cook a little longer and it turned out real glazy, I don't like wet cake. I also used white cake mix instead of yellow. But over all this a very good cake.

Excellent! I skipped the rum glaze on this one and just made a standard powdered sugar glaze that I thought my 9 yr. old would like better. Make sure to beat this well before stirring in your so...

We all loved this cake! I only had 2/3 cup of rum so I used Pina Colada Mix for the rest of the rum. The glaze was very runny and I have decided next time to use only what I can pour on the ca...

One reviewer said this is not (technically) a pound cake, well maybe that's true. But it looks, feels, tastes, smells and goes down like pound cake! No it doesn't have a glaze either--it's a soa...
