Pineapple Juice Cake


Do you love the taste of a moist, flavorful cake bursting with tropical sunshine? This Pineapple Juice Cake recipe is a classic, super easy, and always a crowd-pleaser! It’s based on a simple boxed cake mix, but the addition of pineapple juice transforms it into something delightfully special. The sweet and tangy glaze adds the perfect finishing touch. This recipe is one you’ll want to keep handy for any occasion.


● 1 (15.25-ounce) box yellow or butter cake mix (I prefer Pillsbury for this recipe. See my note below.)
● 34 cup vegetable oil
● 34 cup pineapple juice
● 4 large eggs


For the Glaze

● 2 cups powdered sugar
● 34 cup pineapple juice
● 4 tablespoons unsalted butter


1️⃣ Preheat the oven to 325°F and grease and flour a 10 to 12-cup Bundt pan.

2️⃣ Use an electric mixer to combine the cake mix, vegetable oil, pineapple juice, and eggs in a large bowl. Beat about 2 minutes. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

3️⃣ Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and the cake is just starting to pull away from the sides. Allow the cake to start to cool in the pan while you make the glaze.

4️⃣ In a small saucepan, combine the powdered sugar, pineapple juice, and butter. Cook over medium-low heat until the butter has melted, stirring frequently.

5️⃣ Use a skewer or toothpick to poke holes in the cake. Pour the warm glaze over the cake while it is still in the pan. It’s going to seem like a lot of glaze, but just keep pouring. Allow to cool for 15 to 20 more minutes, or until the cake is cool and most of the glaze has been absorbed, then invert the cake onto a serving platter.
