How to Make PINA COLADA CHEESE CUSTARD CAKE

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 350º F. Spray a 12-cup bundt pan thoroughly with no stick cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, place caramel topping. Stir in rum and pour topping mixture into prepared bundt pan
  3. Place cake mix, pineapple juice, canola oil and 3 eggs into large mixing bowl and blend with electric mixer until moistened. Beat with mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour cake batter into cake pan over caramel topping.
  4. To make the custard, place softened cream cheese cubes and cream of coconut into a food processor bowl fitted with a metal blade; process for about 1 minute. Add condensed and evaporated milks into a food processor bowl and process until smooth, pulsing at first so it doesn't splatter..
  5. Add remaining 3 eggs, one at a time, and and just process until smooth. Spoon cream cheese mixture over top of cake batter.
  6. Spray a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil with no stick cooking spray and cover the pan TIGHTLY with the foil - important! (or use non-stick foil)
