Dairy Free Pina Colada Cake with Vegan, Gluten and Egg Free Variation


baking | March 27, 2016 | By

This Dairy Free Pina Colada Cake was inspired by my travels around the Caribbean (living a very indulged life working as a pastry chef on cruise ships) and the current trend for Poke cakes.  It’s also really easy to ‘dress down’ for a really casual cake with a friend, or ‘dress up’ for entertaining/birthdays.  This Dairy Free Pina Colada Cake can also be made egg and gluten free, the adaptation instructions are in the notes at the bottom of the recipe. 🙂 I like to serve mine with a tropical fruit salad  . The cake itself is made up of a vanilla sponge layered with a pineapple coconut cream, coconut condensed milk and a vanilla syrup then topped with toasted coconut. You can omit the alcohol if you are opposed to it or cooking for children.
