I made this cake with one substitution..... I replaced the water with the pineapple juice I had drained off from the canned pineapple. I was just shy of the 3/4 mark so I added a little water to it. The cake came out perfectly! Not one speck was left!! To combat the crumbling, I refrigerated the cake for several hours, and then cut it into slices with a very sharp knife. Perfect slices! :-)

This cake is easy to make. I added a little more coconut to the top of the cake. Other than that, it was made according to recipe. This cake is so yummy! The amount of rum is just right. I was asked for the recipe and received lots of compliments!

This cake was delicious. My guests loved it, as did my family. For those that said it falls apart when slicing, I would suggest draining the pineapple really really good. You need to do more than just dump it in a strainer. Push and keep pushing the pineapple against the strainer with a large serving spoon. Let sit and then do it again. The pineapple needs to be almost completely dry. Sometimes I even squeeze it in my hand.

We LOVE this cake!! It is moist and delicious. The only problem I have is that it crumbles when I cut it -- but, not because it is dry -- maybe because of the pineapple? Does anyone else have this problem?

This is the most moist and delicious cake I have ever made. I made it for a Christmas get together with friends and it was a huge hit. I will definitely make this again.

****1/2 Stars. Tasted Good. I was wondering if they used dark Rum? I used Bacardi White. Could not find the brand of Cream of Coconut but local liquor store had COCO REAL. Had some problem with getting crushed pineapple disbursed evenly. Otherwise a beautiful cake.
