How to Make Pina Colada Pound Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. To toast the coconut, preheat oven to 225°F. Place coconut on a baking sheet, and place in a oven to bake for 20-30 minutes, turning every ten minutes, until golden brown. Set aside to cool.
  2. Increase oven temperature to 325°F.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter until creamy. Add sugar and rum extract, beating until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Slowly add flour mixture to the large mixing bowl, alternating with sour cream until fully mixed. Fold in crushed pineapple.
  5. Pour batter into a thoroughly greased and floured bundt pan. Bake at 325° for 85-90 minutes.

    NOTE: This makes a very tall cake, and it's OK if it puffs up a bit above the top of your pan.
  6. Remove bundt pan from oven and allow to cool about 15 minutes in pan. Invert onto a wire rack and cool completely.
  7. For the glaze, whisk the milk, powdered sugar and rum extract until smooth. Drizzle on cooled cake, and immediately sprinkle toasted coconut on top of the glaze.
