I am partnering up with Land O’Lakes again to bring you this awesome cake.
With these incredibly hot summer months upon us in Florida, I have been craving delicious frozen cocktails like crazy. Too bad I have to wait until August to drink one again!
While I may not be able to drink a Piña Colada just yet, I am totally within my pregnant rights to crank up the air conditioning and bake a cake. My electric bill is going to be through the roof! ;-)
I just love how the tropical flavors come together in this dessert. The light, moist Bundt® cake makes a perfect dessert for steamy summer nights. Even better, I love how this recipe calls for four perfectly sized Land O Lakes® Butter Half Sticks. It makes measuring so easy—with no leftover portions hanging out in your fridge.

· 1/2 cup brown sugar
· 2 2/3 cup all purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 12-cup Bundt® pan.
In a small bowl, combine pineapple, 2 tablespoons melted Land O Lakes® butter and brown sugar. Evenly spread mixture in the bottom of the Bundt® pan, set aside.
In a medium bowl, sift flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt together. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time until well mixed. Add vanilla extract and coconut extract.
Mix flour mixture into the batter alternating with the coconut milk. Gently fold in shredded coconut.
