- 16 tablespoons (2 sticks) unsalted butter
- 2 (20-ounce) cans pineapple chunks, drained
- 3/4 cup coconut milk
- 1/3 cup spiced rum
- 1 (15.25-ounce) box yellow cake mix
- 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut, plus toasted coconut for serving
- Whipped cream for serving
- Maraschino cherries for serving
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Melt 8 tablespoons of the butter and pour into a 9 × 13-inch baking dish. Stir in the pineapple, coconut milk, and rum. Sprinkle the cake mix evenly over the pineapple. Sprinkle the coconut on top of the cake mix. Cut the remaining 8 tablespoons butter into small cubes and scatter evenly over the coconut.
- Bake the cake for 45 to 55 minutes or until the coconut is golden. Check the cake halfway through to make sure the coconut does not burn. If needed, cover with a piece of aluminum foil.
- Serve warm or at room temperature with whipped cream, cherries, and toasted coconut.
- You can use fresh pineapple instead of canned, if you wish.
- To toast the coconut, spread on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 5 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown.
