I was experimenting to make a cake that tasted similar to Malibu rum without having to use the rum (to save cost) – it came out so moist and even more delicious than my rum cake!

Tropical Dreams


  • 1 pkg White cake mix
  • 2 c Pineapple sherbet, melted
  • 1 small pkg banana instant pudding (I used sugar-free)
  • 2 (6 oz) containers Yoplait coconut cream yogurt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 t Lorann Pina Colada flavoring (still great results without this flavoring)
  • 1/2 t coconut extract
  • 1/2 t banana extract


    Heat oven to 350.

  1. Simply put everything together in one big bowl and beat on low ’til moist, then increase speed to high and beat an additional 2 mins.
  2. Pour into desired cake or cupcake pans and bake 30-35 mins.

What flavor icing do you use on the Tropical Dreams cake?
