This Easy Pineapple Coconut Bundt Cake Is Perfect For Summer

I am partnering up with Land O’Lakes again to bring you this awesome cake.

With these incredibly hot summer months upon us in Florida, I have been craving delicious frozen cocktails like crazy. Too bad I have to wait until August to drink one again!

While I may not be able to drink a Piña Colada just yet, I am totally within my pregnant rights to crank up the air conditioning and bake a cake. My electric bill is going to be through the roof! 😉

Luckily, I finally got a nice break from the heat last week on a fun visit to Minnesota. Land O’Lakes took all of us Kitchen Conversation bloggers out to one of their dairy farms to really see what the day to day life is like on a dairy farm. Sadie Frericks (who also blogs at Dairy Good Life) graciously let all 9 of us come visit her farm for the day and ask her a billion questions.

Sadie’s farm has approximately 75 cows and it takes 3 hours for each milking…and they have to be milked twice a day. Whoa. I was so interested in the process, but I was even more interested in meeting all the adorable cows. Each of their cows has a name her and her family have picked out, but as she showed us, they also each have their very own personalities! It was a blast getting to see behind the scenes of where some of Land O’Lakes milk comes from!

This Unique & Tropical Bundt Cake Is Perfect For The Summer

I Love The Tropical Flavors In This Cake Recipe

But let’s get back to what is important…this cake! I just love how the tropical flavors come together in this dessert.  The light, moist Bundt® cake makes a perfect dessert for steamy summer nights. Even better, I love how this recipe calls for four perfectly sized Land O Lakes® Butter Half Sticks. It makes measuring so easy—with no leftover portions hanging out in your fridge.

    I made this cake today and it turned out great. It seemed like a lot of batter for a bundt pan so I didn’t utilize the entire recipe in one pan. I made 12 cupcakes AND the bundt cake. I will frost the cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting.

  2. Donna Davis

    I have made this cake multiple times. It just gets better and better! I get rave reviews from my elderly father. Who will NOT even let me have a slice of cake if I tell him that I baked it for him!

  3. Adriana M

    I want to bake this cake before the weekend but I don’t have coconut milk. Can I use regular milk or buttermilk instead?

  4. Erica

    This cake was delicious. I made it for my mom’s birthday and everyone loved it. I am no pro at baking and these instructions are super easy to follow.

  5. Jill Coley

    Butter has measurements printed on its stick. Some butter comes in 1/2 sticks…such 
    as Land O’ Lakes. A pound is a pound. 

  6. Faridha Toppa

    Hello Jessica, I’ve been looking for a coconut/pinapple cake for a long time. I’m grad I came across this one. Thanks for sharing. 

    Jessica, would it possible to PLEASE wright the ingriedients and also ingriedients of future recepies in gramms. Its more accurate… 
    most europeans use the Ingriedients measurement in gramms (gr) . Thank you very much. Faridha

      I have this question too! Is it four half cup sticks, or two? I’m going to put in two since it says 1 cup! Wish me luck!

  7. Donna Davis

    I have made this delectable cake, from start to finish this is by far a Master Piece! I was praised by all that got a chance to taste it. And believe me there were Not many! I showed my dad a picture of it and he said, ” When are you going to make ME one of those fancy cakes! I am making him one tomorrow! Thanks for sharing this moist and tropical flavored CAKE! OUTSTANDING!

    When I saw this recipe I was really excited. Went to the store and purchased everything exactly as recipe requested. Both my daughter and I read the directions and followed each step carefully. I am 67 years old, and have been cooking and baking from scratch as well as boxed cakes for years. As they say; there is a first time for everything. My cake did not turn out well at all. It was extremely dense. All I could think of was the amount of money wasted. Does anyone have any thoughts as to what I may have done wrong.

    1. Jessica

      Hi Maria, it is a pound cake, so it is a dense cake! If it was TOO dense, possibly check your baking powder to make sure it’s still fresh or make sure you used 1 cup of butter total (2 regular sticks of butter).

  9. Kimberly Hughes

    This cake is a keeper. I will add this to my list of special cakes. Baked this for a co-worker’s birthday and it was a big hit.

  10. Ali

    Did anyone ever find out if the coconut milk is the refrigerated carton milk, or the canned coconut milk used in Thai foods?

  11. Nita

    Jessica, It’s filled my heart with joy to FINALLY find a pineapple coconut recipe that filled my requirements… I’ve been looking for three days. My husband said why not look on Google? I did and that’s where i found your scrumptious sounding recipe.. Today is saturday and I’m making it tomorrow for a Senior meeting monday. So as you can see my time was almost out Thanks a billion times for posting this recipe. Nita

  12. Joanne

    Well if you can’t DRINK your cocktails, might as well eat them! This cake looks so perfectly moist and sounds like a tropical adventure!

  13. Sadie Frericks

    This cake is the best, Jessica. Did you know they left an entire second cake here after the picnic? Heaven! It was so much fun to meet you and show you our farm. Good luck with those babies! I’ll be sure to let you know when Dixie has her twins. 🙂

  14. Lindsay Ann @ Lindsay Ann Bakes

    Just like a pina colada! So perfect for summer… and that buttery sweet pineappl-ey goodness caramelized on top?! Looks incredible!

  15. Dianna

    I’m right there with you on the frozen cocktail thing… or any cocktail, really. I think I just want whatever I can’t have. Except I have to wait until November!! 🙁 I’ll just have to curb the craving with cake. 😉 P.S. That cow. I’m dying over the cuteness.

  16. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure

    Ahhwhat a perfect cake .. would love to have a slice for breakfast. Love the use of pineapple and cocnut milk.. it must have been delicious.

  17. Sues

    This cake looks gorgeously moist (can moist be a prettier word with “gorgeously” in front of it??). I just tried Poland Spring’s Pineapple Coconut sparkling water today and it’s delightful…. Now I need to add this to the menu for a well-rounded day 🙂

  18. Ali

    This cake looks delicious! If I want to make a 13 by 9 cake instead of a Bundt, how long would you recommend baking it, and at what temperature?

  19. sara

    Just wondering what kind of coconut milk you’re referring to: coconut milk (like the Blue Diamond brand that comes in a cardboard box), or do you mean canned coconut milk (like the kind you use in Thai or other Asian recipes)?

  20. Averie @ Averie Cooks

    Baking with coconut milk and pineapple, mmmm, how wonderful! Bet your house smelled divine! The cake looks like fluffy perfection! pinned

  21. bridget {bake at 350}

    This was totally DELISH! Loved everything about it and am excited to make it at home. You know, home where we pronounce “caramel” as “car-muhl.” 😉

    Hope you made it home early!

  22. Brenda @ a farmgirl's dabbles

    When I took my first bite of this cake, all I could think about was my mom. I know she’d just love this, and I can’t wait to make it for her! It was great to see you in MN – take care of yourself and your babes, have a great summer!

  23. Melanie @ Carmel Moments

    Looks like you had a blast! And what a beautiful day.
    Cake sounds amaZing!
    Have a wonderful Monday!
