Guest Blogger: Being Vegan – Pineapple Pound Cake With Piña Colada Glaze

24 Apr

Who doesn’t like a good pound cake? Especially a pound cake with Piña Colada Glaze! Joshua of Being Vegan has been kind enough to share with us his delicious recipe. Here he is in his own words, “Some of my friends would call me a chef, but I describe myself as an old fashion cook who loves talking about, eating, and make deliciously vegan dishes.” Follow Being Vegan on: Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Welcome Joshua!

I came up with the Pineapple Pound Cake With Piña Colada Glaze recipe out of the blue because I wanted some type of pineapple dessert, but I did not want to do the traditional pineapple upside down cake. This recipe turned out better than I hoped and the cake is so moist. Once you try this recipe, you will be making this cake all the time for your friends and family. Speaking of moist cake, I thought it best to also show a picture of the cake after it was cut so that you can see how moist it really is.

Pineapple Pound Cake With Piña Colada Glaze

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 1

Serving Size: 6

Pineapple Pound Cake With Piña Colada Glaze


    • 1 faux egg (1 tsp baking soda + 1 tbsp white distilled vinegar)
    • 1/4 cup coconut milk (full fat or lite)
    • 1 tbsp lemon juice
    • pineapple puree (1/2 cup pineapple chunks + 1 tbsp pineapple juice)
    • 2 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1/4 cup canola oil
    • 2/3 cup raw sugar
    • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp salt
Piña Colada Glaze
  • 1/2 cup vegan powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp coconut milk (full fat or lite)
  • 1 tsp pineapple juice


  1. Preheat your oven at 350F. In a bowl, whisk together your faux egg, coconut milk, lemon juice, pineapple puree, vanilla extract, canola oil, and raw sugar.
  2. In another bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Then pour the wet ingredients into the dry and fold together until the flour is fully incorporated but do not over mix.
  3. Grease an 9×5 inch loaf pan and pour in your batter. Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes, then remove from the pan and let it finish cooling on a cooling rack.
  4. While the cake is cooling, whisk together your ingredients for the piña colada glaze. If the glaze looks translucent (yellowish color), add in a tablespoon more of powdered sugar at a time until it becomes white.
  5. Once the cake has finished cooling, pour the glaze on top and use a spatula to spread it out evenly. Let the cake site for another hour for the glaze to come together. Then slice, serve, and enjoy

    This looks delicious. My husband loves pineapple upside down cake; this looks like it could be a good alternative.

    Pound cake all by itself is fantastic – but w/ that glaze! Wow!

        Joshua, Thanks so much for this. Surprised my fiancee with it for her birthday last week, and we both loved it! Neither of us had ever had pina colada cake (or even a pina colada, for that matter.
