Regardless of whether summer’s on its way in or on its way out, there’s something about cooking with pineapple that makes us so happy. It’s a delicious, bright, fun flavor to incorporate into your recipes, so why wouldn’t we want to get as much out of it as possible? Not only is pineapple amazing, but how about how great it is when you combine it with coconut…piña coladas anyone?? An incredible flavor duo if we ever saw one, we knew we were going with that when we got the craving for a tropical-feeling/tasting cake the other day. Which is why we came up with this super simple dump cake with complex piña colada flavor!
1 20 ounce can cubed or crushed pineapple
1 15 ounce can tropical fruit
1 package of orange cake mix
1 1/2 sticks of butter
1/2 cup instant oatmeal
1 cup coconut flakes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Dump both of the fruits & their juices into a 9 x 12 Pyrex baking dish.
Pour the dry cake mix on top of the fruit & spread out evenly.
Mix oatmeal & coconut & sprinkle over cake mixture with fingers.
Melt butter & pour on top evenly. It should cover the entire cake mix.
Bake for one hour & serve with ice cream
