  • 1 1/4 cup Pina colada drink mix
  • 1/3 cup rum plus 2 tablespoons, divided
  • 3 oz coconut cream pudding mix
  • 2 8 ounce tub whipped topping, thawed



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the wet ingredients (butter, egg whites, milk, vanilla extract) for the white cake layer. 
  • In a separate larger bowl, mix together the dry ingredients for the white cake layer (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt). 
  • Mix together the dry and wet ingredients to form the cake batter. Use an electric mixer to make this easier, if you have one.
  • Fold the fresh pineapples into the cake batter with a spatula.
  • Spray a 9" x 13" baking pan with cooking spray.
  • Pour cake batter into baking pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until a sharp knife inserted into the cake comes out clean.
  • Allow cake to cool until it can be safely handled.
  • Using the back of a spoon, or other utensil, poke cake all over to form holes. 
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the pudding mix with 1 cup of the Pina Colada drink mix and the rum. 
  • Pour over the cake and spread around to make sure it gets in the holes.
  • Mix together one container whipped topping with the remaining 1/4 cup of Pina Colada mix and 2 tablespoons rum. 
  • Spread this over the top of the cake and then top with remaining whipped cream.
  • Refrigerate for at least one hour to chill.
  • If desired, top with fresh pineapple to garnish. Serve!
