    Lunaraven_psi's Note:

    This cake is the best ever! Not to much coconut, pineapple, rum or too sweet. Everyone gulped it down and asked for the recipe. The cake makes a great presentation and can be topped with maraschino cherries to make it pretty if serving at a party or brunch.

      I made this for my DH (for a morning tea) and it got rave reviews from the men and women alike. Due to not having access to pineapple flavouring - I left that out, I doubled the cake recipe and baked in a large sheet tin. I didn't use the icing (mixed condensed milk, 1 TB of rum essence and coconut cream and poured over the cake stabbed with a chop stick about 40 times) and topped with toasted coconut. I got 25 large slices. Thanks for posting!

      After Cool slightly; remove from pan. With a large fork or skewer poke holes about 1 inch apart in cake almost to bottom. Use a half of Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut can and 2 tablespoons of rum flavoring, combine cream of coconut and rum; pour over cake. Chill thoroughly then garnish. Store in refrigerator for a several hours or overnight. I made this cake to bring to a luau themed party and I should have made 2! Its moist, its easy to make and it tastes really wonderful. I have had 5 requests for this recipe! I frosted it with whipped cream and chopped macadamia nuts. In the future I may use toasted coconut too.

      Yum! This was so rich. I made a couple of changes. Walmart didn't have the pineapple extract, so I used Triple Sec. And when I was mixing the icing, I forgot to put in the other can of pineapple. But it was still so very, very good. The cake was amazingly rich!
