Amazingly Delicious Rum Pina Colada Cake

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Carb Lover

This cake is a recipe from those wonderful people at Bacardi Rum. It takes a little time but it is worth it. I have been making this cake for over ten years and it makes a beautiful presentation and it tastes so good. It is perfect ending for a summer evening meal, its light and refreshing so you don't feel weighed down. Enjoy :)

I too have been making this cake for years ( in fact I still have th printed recipe card from Bacardi). This cake is super moist and very yummy. Don't want to use the rum, no problem. I have used rum extract as a substitute with no problem. Everytime I've made this, someone asks for the recipe. Thanks for posting.
