Mini Pina Colada Bundt Cakes

Kara and I wanted to make Pina Colada mini donuts but since we have so many kitchen gadgets AND we alternate blogging between 3 different houses, it’s sometimes hard to find what we’re looking for. Not that we’re unorganized or anything. So we had to think of an alternative.

About a month ago, there was a Wilton tent sale nearby. Kara went with our cousin Cristina and she came home with all sorts of goodies. This mini bundt pan was one of them and we figured this was a good time try it out.

Donuts? What donuts? The Mini Bundt Cakes were way better than we could even imagine! I know coconut is one of those love-hate ingredients. But..of course…I love it! And pineapple too! Pina Colada flavors and mini desserts are my life. All in all, we were totally surprised at how well these turned out. They came out of the pan super easy and the cake was moist and good. The pineapple flavor was really great! This tropical recipe is a must-try before summer is over.
