Roasted Piña Colada Cake

Capture all the tropical flavors of your favorite beachside cocktail in this delicious piña colada cake. Chunks of juicy pineapple are layered along the bottom of the pan and the batter, laced with coconut, rum, and nutmeg, is poured on top. We’ve cut the pineapple into rounds, but you can simply cube them or use small cookie cutters for a more ornate look – no matter how you slice it, this cake will taste great.
