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.

It was unclear whether the pineapple should be drained . I drained it. Next time I will add more pineapple and drain it. The cake was wet enough without the extra juice. - 23 May 2018 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made this for a Mexican dessert at Taco Night at my kid's school. I cant say enough Good things about this recipe! Cans of coconut cream are now 13.75oz, instead of 15oz, but it was a perfect amount. I used a white cake mix. I added 1tsp Coconut extract to the whipping cream frosting, but didnt change anything else. This cake was so incredibly decadent, it was almost too Amazing for 'Taco Night'. THX for a 100% Awesome recipe! I cant wait to make it for Cinco de Mayo! - 16 Mar 2018 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
