Amazing delicoius drunken cake! Tastes wonderful but beware of the alcohol content, the whole cake is submerged in a wonderful dry, smooth rum. If you like to relax and drink, this is the cake for you!

I thought this cake was terribly dry and tasteless. I will agree with one of the other reviewers that the rum/pineapple/coconut mixture was good. I made it for the 4th of July and luckily it was just family who tried it as I honestly would have been embarassed to serve it to guests. No one wanted another piece or to take any home so I'll end up throwing what is left away. I read other reviewers comments prior to making it so made sure I increased and made larger holes but it still was very dry and tasteless. I would recommend making more liquid as there seems to be an insufficent amount of liquid topping for the size of the cake. If making this for company, I'd recommend giving it a trial one on yourself first to be on the safe side.

Wow, this really is a tasty cake! I made this cake exactly as stated in the recipe for a small dinner party with friends last night. Everyone loved it! Two words of caution; 1. make sure you grease the pan thoroughly including the top. Mine was so fluffy that it actually rose above the top of the pan and stuck. 2. Make sure you have plenty of clearance in your oven for it to rise. I have one of those stoves with the double ovens and mistakingly used the small one on top. Not a good idea! (Was baking bread in the big oven) All in all a winner. I will definately make this again!
