Everyone's favorite tropical beverage turned into a scrumptious and easy pound cake! Pina Colada Pound Cake is full of pineapple flavor and topped with a coconut glaze. 


For the Cake:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 5 large eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
  • 2 teaspoons rum flavoring

For the Glaze:

  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon rum flavoring
  • 1 cup sweetened coconut (toasted)


  1. Toast coconut by spreading in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir and cook for about 3-5 minutes until toasted.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter until creamy. Add in sugar and rum flavoring, beating until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Slowly add flour mixtures to mixing bowl, alternating with sour cream until fully mixed. Fold in crushed pineapple.
  4. Pour into a well greased and floured bundt pan. Bake in a 325 degree oven for 85-90 minutes. This makes a very big cake that will puff up over the top of your pan. It's okay.
  5. Remove from oven and allow to cool about 15 minutes in pan. Invert onto a wire rack and cool completely.
  6. For the glaze, whisk the milk, rum and powdered sugar until smooth. Drizzle on cooled cake and immediately sprinkle with toasted coconut. ENJOY!
