Pina Colada drizzle cake is a must if you love the famous Pina Colada cocktail. The sponge is flavoured with a generous splash of coconut rum, and it's decorated with two key ingredients; pineapple and coconut. This fun bake tastes just like holidays. To make this Pina Colada cake, we've suggested following our top-rated lemon drizzle cake recipe but swapping the lemon zest for pineapple juice. For a non-alcoholic version, leave out the coconut rum and use more pineapple juice instead.


For the drizzle cake

  • 175g caster sugar
  • 175g self-raising flour
  • 175g softened butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/3 level tsp baking power
  • 1tsp pineapple juice

For the drizzle:

  • 50ml pineapple juice
  • 3tsp coconut rum
  • squeeze of lime juice

For the decoration:

  • 65ml coconut cream
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • 2 slices fresh pineapple, quartered
  • 2 tbsp desiccated coconut, toasted
  • zest of 1 lime




  1. Follow the lemon drizzle cake recipe to the end of step 2 - but swap the grind lemon zest with 1tsp pineapple juice.
  2. Combine the pineapple juice, rum and lime juice and bring it to the boil in a medium pan until slightly thickened. Pour over the hot cake when it's still in the tin and allow to soak in. Allow to cool and remove from the tin.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the coconut cream and sugar. Drizzle over the cake and decorate with remaining ingredients.
