Any cake that begins with a yellow cake mix will never be "5-star" in my book for the sole reason that it will always have that tell-tale artificial cake mix flavor. Having said that, this was very good! Rather than the full 1/2 cup of rum, I used 1/4 cup of the juice drained from the pineapple and 1/4 cup Malibu (coconut flavored)rum. The brand of cream of coconut I use (Coco Lopez) comes in a 16 oz. can, which is 2 ozs. more than this recipe calls for. Nevertheless, I still used all of the remaining cream of coconut mixed with 2 T. Malibu rum and gradually brushed it all over the top and sides of the cake with a pastry brush. While it was still somewhat sticky I sprinkled toasted coconut liberally on the top, which proved to be a perfect addition both in flavor and appearance. This is a very moist and delicately flavored cake, which I think may have been overpowered by the rum had I used the full 1/2 cup. But it still had that unmistakable cake mix taste. I think from now on I will substitute either a French Vanilla or even white cake mix for any recipe calling for a yellow cake mix. The flavor is better and these don't have that awful yellow color. *Update* -- Sent this to work with hubby, who called to report that his staff went nuts over this cake!


This recipe is a very good starting point. I wanted to add a little more flavor to it, so I used pineapple cake mix and coconut pudding and WOW.


I'm on weight watchers, so 8 ww points per slice wasn't appealing, no matter how good the recipe sounded. Here's the good news: I cut it down to 164 calories and only 3.5 ww points and it still tasted incredible decadent and delicious! I used rum flavoring + water instead of the rum. I used egg beaters instead of eggs. I used applesauce instead of the oil. I used light coconut milk instead of whole fat coconut milk. I topped with fat free cool whip. It was SO good that my friend asked me to use this recipe when I bake her wedding cake next week.
