I need a good recipe for a pina colada cake for this weekend. It is for a baby shower so no rum. Also it will be 11x15 that I will decorate. They want cream cheese frosting so I found the crusting cream cheese recipe unless someone had a good idea. Theme is Ladybug from the Tiddliwinks collection. One last thing. Does anyone know if this is a fairly heavy cake that needs refrigeration? Any help is appreciated. I have 3 other cakes to do for this weekend and I just do it as a hobby for friends.
. . . there are several in the recipe section of CC . . . this one doesn't use any extracts/flavor oils (incase you don't have access to these in time . . . but it is an actual "cheesecake". . . so maybe that's not what you are looking for)
Â¾ cup crushed graham crackers
Â¼ cup sugar
Â¼ tsp. cinnamon
Â¼ cup melted butter
Â¼ cup shredded coconut
1 lb. cream cheese
Â½ cup granulated sugar
Â½ cup coconut milk
Â½ cup pineapple juice
2 tbsp. white rum (optional)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Heat the oven to 300 degrees. Mix the ingredients of the "crust" and placed in a mold of spring 9 ".
In food processor blend cream cheese with sugar and add eggs one by one. After mixing the rest of the ingredients. Pouring the mixture over the crust. "
Bakes for 1 hour 15 minutes. Let cool and place in refrigerator for several hours.
Decorate with grated coconut, toasted.
and then there are others . . . with the extracts/flavor oils if you prefer . . .
. . . this one sounds yummy too . . . if you can find all the ingredients . . .
. . . you could also consider using pina colada mixer in place of water as a doctored cake mix if you have limited access to ingredients/extracts . . . HTH
Well it looks like dragonflydreams covered all options well for you
Thanks for both of your replies. Dragonflydreams, I am going with the Pina Colada Cake 4. I hope it turns out ok, but I think this is what the lady I am making it for decribed. I need to go buy a couple more extracts tomorrow, then I am going to make one for home to test it. This may sound dumb but does rum extract have too much alcohol content for a baby shower? I am going to use a crusting cream cheese frosting. Wish me luck since I have an out patient surgery on Thursday and 4 cakes for friends and church for this weekend.
The amount of flavoring used isn't all that much per serving plus about 40% (if I'm not mistaken) of the alcohol bakes out.
i have also used a pineapple cake mix instead of the white cake mix
Just a thought
here is a link to allrecipes for a pina coloda cake. Looks simple...sounds good! Good luck!!
There is a recipe here on CC called Hawiian wedding cake. I've made it, it's good. Leave out the nuts, add 2 tsp. coconut oil. plus some flaked coconut to the mix and if you have it a mashed up banana. Its a great cake.
