Ever been to Hawaii, yeah me neither…. but if you went, I think this is something they may serve in Hawaii. It’s moist, has pineapple and coconut in it, plus a little rum extract, all things Hawaiian!
It starts with a cake mix, just to make it easy on you
pudding mix, oil and eggs make it super moist, Greek yogurt so you can call it diet food, coconut, rum extract and crushed pineapple.
and bake in a 350 degree oven for 50 – 55 minutes until a toothpick comes out mostly clean
Meanwhile, you can make your glaze. I had some pineapple juice leftover from this recipe, so I just added about 2 to 3 TBSP of juice to confectionery sugar and a little vanilla, so it thick but still drizzlable
If you didn’t have pineapple juice, you could use 2 to 3 TSBP of milk, vanilla and cup of confectionery sugar, it just won’t have as pineapply taste
When your cake is done, let it sit on the counter for 15 to 30 minutes, then turn it out and drizzle with glaze and top with toasted coconut
Hawaiian Pound Cake
1 box of yellow cake mix
1 3.4 ounce instant vanilla pudding mix
1 8 oz can crushed pineapple (do not drain)
1 teaspoon of rum extract
1 5 oz. container of Greek Yogurt
1/4 cup oil
1 1/2 cups of coconut
2 – 3 TSBP. Pineapple Juice or Milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup confectionery sugar
In a large bowl add cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, rum extract, yogurt and oil. Beat for 2 minutes. Fold in pineapple and 1 cup coconut and pour into a sprayed Bundt pan and bake at 350 for 50 – 55 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. While the cake is baking put 1/2 cup of coconut on a sheet pan and toast for 5 to 6 minutes and remove when toasted, then remove from the pan, because it will continue to toast on the hot pan.
In a small bowl combine juice or milk, vanilla and sugar, adjusting sugar and juice or milk until it drizzly
Remove pan from the oven when a tooth pick comes out mostly clean and allow to cool on counter for 15 – 30 minutes then turn out on a plate or stand, and allow to cool completely, then drizzle glaze and sprinkle toasted coconut
