An easy version of the beloved tres leches cake is made with cake mix, pineapple and cream of coconut to give the cake a pina colada flavor.
Make sure you use cream of coconut, not coconut milk or coconut juice. It is usually found with the alcoholic beverages, as it is used to make pina colada drinks.

This was a BIG hit with our friends, all of whom had eaten traditional tres leches cake previously, including one who ate it more than once in Costa Rica. I drained the pineapple and substituted the juice for part of the water called for in the cake batter. The only other change was making a larger quantity of toasted coconut and serving it on the side, since not everyone appreciates coconut, and those who did could enjoy it to their personal taste. I will definitely make it again and will probably make it the same way. - 05 May 2019 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I would make it again. I bought the coconut milk instead of the coconut cream. But it turned out ok. - 05 May 2019 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
