Pina Colada Tea Cakes
Pina Colada Tea Cakes are marvelous. These lovely Tea Cakes made our Christmas Baking Extravaganza this year! We’ve already had several of our neighbors expressing how much they enjoyed these delicious treats. Actually, the most difficult part of this recipe is greasing and flouring the 20-tin miniature Bundt pan! The rest is a piece of cake! Ha, ha!
Pina Colada Tea Cakes start with a Pineapple cake mix. I added pineapple gelatin, eggs, sour cream, half-and-half, canola oil, white vanilla chips and coconut. After the Tea Cakes are baked and cooled, I glazed them with a simple powdered sugar icing with pineapple extract and added a candied cherry in the middle. Yes, these Tea Cakes were mouthwatering and irresistible.
I baked over 15 different kinds of Tea Cakes for Christmas giving this year. But because I had no room in my freezers to store the goodies, I baked in two day intervals and had my husband make deliveries on the third day. We tried to make sure each gift bag received at least four different kinds of tea cakes. Some had six, others had five. So there was a variety of different flavors for each family to pick from.
If you are thrilled with Pina Colada anything, then these Tea Cakes are perfect for you. They are certainly wonderful for holiday baking. I purchased my specialty miniature Bundt pans at Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts. The cakes come out so beautifully, along with being festive and elegant enough for gift giving or holiday parties. You’re family and friends will love this awesome dessert.
Pina Colada Tea Cakes are awesome!

If you enjoy the traditional flavors of Pina Colada — pineapple and coconut (along with a cherry), you’ll love these delightful Tea Cakes.
These make great gifts for holiday baking.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the cake. (Pictures show a double-batch).
Place pineapple cake mix, pineapple gelatin, coconut and sour cream in a large mixing bowl.
Add eggs and half-and-half.
Add canola oil.
Stir ingredients well to combine.
Add vanilla chips.
Stir again to combine.
Grease and flour a 20-tin miniature Bundt pan.
Fill the muffin tins about two-thirds full.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. If you have multiple Bundt pan racks being used, rotate the pans on shelf racks in the oven after 10 minutes of baking time.
Remove Bundt pan from oven to wire rack to cool completely before adding icing. Remove individual Tea Cakes from individual Bundt tins and place on wire racks.
I used these ingredients, plus water, for the icing.
Place powdered sugar in a mixing bowl. Add pineapple extract and water.
Whisk ingredients to combine.
I spooned the ingredients into a gallon-size zip lock bag (not the kind that stand up!) Seal the bag, snip off a corner and drizzle icing over top of individual Tea Cakes.
Add a candied cherry in the middle of each Bundt Tea Cake. Allow icing to dry before wrapping in plastic wrap. Or remove to plastic containers to keep fresh.
Pina Colada Tea Cakes are so scrumptious you’re gonna want more than one!
If you have a Christmas party to attend, this is a festive and elegant dessert to take along.
Every bite will have you swooning!
Eat a stack or two!
