Welcome spring and warmer weather with this bright and delicious pineapple bundt cake! It’s packed with tropical pineapple flavor and perfect for any occasion, or with just a cup of coffee in the morning. Plus, it’s super easy to make – just 15 minutes and it’s in the oven!
Bundt cakes are the ultimate cakes for the lazy baker. They require little prep time and no or little to no decorating afterwards. For this pineapple bundt cake, I added pineapple directly into the batter for the most flavor. To garnish the top, I add just a simple whipped cream frosting topped with maraschino cherries and pineapple chunks. The simplicity is elegant and eye-catching!
My secret to making a moist and delicious bundt cake is to add melted chocolate to the batter. For this recipe I used white chocolate; for others, I use dark or milk chocolate. The chocolate adds incredible moisture to the cake and flavor.

Baking Tip: have you ever baked a bundt cake only for it to get stuck in the pan? Worst feeling ever! To avoid that disaster in the future, make sure to use a baking spray that contains a starch. I get mine from Williams Sonoma. Or, try buttering and flouring the pan. For this, simply use a square of softened butter and using your fingers, grease the inside. Then, add approximately ¼ cup all-purpose flour to the pan and rotate it around until the flour coats the butter. Dump any excess flour out.
