Mini Pina Colada Bundt Cakes

I  pulled a Paula Deen when making this recipe as it calls for 2 cups of butter. Sometimes you just have to go with it though. A lot of desserts would not taste like dessert if it wasn't for the butter!

My coworker is coming back from maternity leave tomorrow after 3 months so I wanted to bring in a treat for the occasion. I found this recipe for the Pina Colada Bundt Cakes on the Live Love Pasta blog. When I saw this post I immediately printed out the recipe. I love Pina Coladas. I am a fufu drink girl, so when I order a drink it is usually a Pina Colada or a strawberry daiquiri. So I figured these cakes have to be good!

They cakes came out pretty good. I will definitely make them again but I think I would add more pineapple to the batter. They came out really well for a first try though.....I have never called myself a baker by any stretch so when desserts come out of the oven not burnt to a crisp I am happy!
