Small Batch Piña Colada Cake

Small Batch Piña Colada Cake

Oh summer! I cannot get enough of you! I hope you can stay longer, but since it seems it is not going to be the case, so I might as well enjoy you as much as I can. Summer is the perfect time to incorporate fresh sweet fruits in baked goodies, and that’s what I had been doing lately.


I made the Piña Colada Crumb Bars, and I have to tell you it was absolutely amazing! With dessert that great, the only way to go for me (aside from making it again) is to make another variation of it but this time, a cake version. A mini cake version perfect for 2-3 people.

I don’t mean to be selfish here, but small batch recipes are awesome and I really love them. They are perfect portion and no leftover problem. A cake this good, with a size this perfect, it was gone so fast. It never failed, and it always made me feel better.
