I love any dessert that tastes like the tropics. When I wanted to create a new dump cake recipe, I went right to pineapple, coconut and rum. I was very pleased with the results! —Shannon Dobos, Calgary, Alberta

Pina Colada Dump Cake Tips

What can you use instead of rum to make pina colada dump cake?

If you're not a fan of rum, try using brandy or cognac. Even tequila will work! (You can use up your remaining spirits with some of these recipes that use a splash of liquor.) Need a non-alcoholic cake? Swap in pineapple juice, orange juice or coconut milk.

What can you serve with pina colada dump cake?

Homemade vanilla ice cream or whipped cream would be divine! And what finishes a dessert like this better than a cherry on top?

How should you store pina colada dump cake?

Store your pina colada dump cake, covered, in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days.
