Hey All!

Our Ice Cream Summer fun is not over yet! My fabulous cake diva contributor Rose is back with another delicious dessert recipe! Check it out and it’s YUMMY Pineapple themed!

Hello Again Brite and Bubbly readers! Are you ready for more yummy Ice cream desserts?!!!!!! I don’t know about you, but when I think of the perfect summer vacation, I picture myself on a tropical beach, laying by the shore, palm trees all around me and Piña Colada in hand. I bet it’s the perfect summer vacation for you too! Since I love Piña Coladas so much, I had to come up with a Piña Colada dessert, and you will definitely love this one! This dessert just brings me back to those beach summer nights in the Caribbean, where I grew up. It has coconut rum cake topped with pineapple sherbet and a piña colada sauce. It’s just a sweet tropical dream!

Yummy Pina Colada Dreams Cake & Ice Cream Dessert Ingredients

To make this dessert you will need:

  • Coconut Rum Cake (see recipe below)
  • Pineapple Sherbet
  • Piña Colada Sauce (see recipe below)
  • Fresh pineapple cut into tiny chunks
  • A jar of maraschino cherries
  • A pineapple wedge and a cherry on a skewer for garnish
  • A Drink umbrella for decoration

Coconut Rum Cake recipe (Adapted from this cupcake recipe from the amazing: howsweeteats.com)

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar

  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • ¼ cup shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup coconut rum
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon coconut extract

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9-inch cake pan. I grease the cake pan and the sides with shortening, place a parchment paper lining, and grease it again. My cakes never stick with this method. The shape of the pan doesn’t matter because you will cut it into cubes to fit them into an ice cream dish.
Cream butter, sugar and eggs until fluffy. Add vanilla and coconut extracts and mix until combined. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add half of the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Add the milk and mix. Add remaining dry ingredients and coconut rum. Fold in shredded coconut.
Pour into pan and bake for 25-35 mins or until fork is clean. Cool in rack. My favorite part of this cake is the crispy crust. It’s delicious!

Piña Colada Sauce Recipe:

  • Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tsp coconut milk

Whisk all ingredients until combined. This sauce will be runny. It’s more of a soak for the cake, but it will take this dessert to the next level.
Assemble

How-To-DIY-Recipes

    • Cut the cake in cubes about ¾ of an inch
    • Fit them about ¾ of your dessert dish
    • Drizzle sauce, add cherries and pineapple chunks.
    • Top with as many scoops of pineapple sherbet as you can
    • Drizzle more piña colada sauce over sherbet
    • Top with more pineapple chunks

To decorate stick a long skewer with a cherry and a pineapple wedge and don’t forget the umbrella!

Share with your friends, unless they’re on a diet, if they are, just skip the sauce and tell them it’s low calories! HAHAHA…

Do you have any other tropical fruits laying around? Kiwi, mango, papaya…go ahead and cut them into chunks and substitute for or add them with the pineapple. In that case you can call it Tropical Colada Dreams. Other tropical fruits will be just as refreshing and delicious!
