After, Maya pushes Riley into Lucas' lap, paralleling the scene in the first episode. I am making this as soon as Lent is over. We hope that one day, one of us will be lucky enough to become the future Mrs. Emma, Ravi, and Zuri Ross head off to a rustic summer camp in Maine, where their parents met as teens. Riley and her friends rally together to help his campaign. I love a rich chocolate cake or a lemon cake. Well i have to go bake now.

On school career day, Maya was not surprised when her mother fails to show up as promised. The next day, when Katy interrupted Cory's lesson, Maya was embarrassed by her mother's performance. Maya told her mother it was best when she went on her imaginary auditions and chased her imaginary father, despite claiming she wasn't humiliated by her mother's appearance.
After a teacher complimented Maya's art, she asked Maya to present it at a school event. Maya didn't want her art on display, but Riley went behind her back to have Maya's work displayed so her mother could come and see it. On the night of the art exhibit, Maya's painting of a diner with a woman only half-visible was shown. Maya's mother didn't show up to see the exhibit, leading Riley to visit her and demand to know why she didn't show up.
Katy explained she only disappoints her daughter. Katy was determined to simply work so Maya could have more than she had, even if it meant she wasn't always around for her.
Despite regularly hearing how Cory and Shawn were the Riley and Maya of their day, Maya was not initially impressed with Shawn. Maya tried to prove that she and Riley are better friends than Cory and Shawn. Maya helped Riley confront Shawn about him ignoring her when he visited town. Shawn and Maya began to see how they do have a lot in common, including their respective friendships with Cory and Riley. Before Shawn left, he invited the kids, including Maya, on a trip he was going to take to Upstate New York.
During the holiday dinner, Maya also saw Riley's uncle Josh. Maya was instantly smitten with Josh, despite him being three years older than her. It was obvious they had met before because Josh told her she "grew up gorgeous". When Josh visited again for game night, Maya tried to make advances on him but he told her he was too old for her. Undeterred, Maya told him she's playing the long game.
On Maya's fourteenth birthday, Maya's mother left for work before Maya got up. Maya was resigned to the fact Katy forgot her birthday, which seemed to anger Riley and the Matthews more than it did Maya. Cory and Riley's plan got Shawn excited about trying to fix things between Katy and Maya.
Shawn went to the diner to talk to Katy about forgetting Maya's birthday party, which offended Katy and initially made her dislike Shawn. Katy mentioned to Shawn that Maya doesn't stop talking about him, particularly after the trip he took with the kids. Shawn and Katy bonded over being bad at relationships and being the ones people leave. Katy admitted that although Maya thinks she chased away her dad, it was actually her dad that left her. A woman arrived with Katy's birthday gift, a locket, for Maya, but Katy didn't quite have the money for it yet.
Shawn gave Katy the extra money so Katy could buy the gift on Maya's birthday and asked to take the family photo to go in the locket. Although Katy didn't want him to, Shawn told Maya the truth that her dad left her mom.
Katy admitted the reason she wasn't around is she was working extra shifts to get Maya the gift she wanted. Shawn eventually tells Maya the truth about her father. When Josh came to New York for the summer, Maya again flirted with him.
Josh told Maya that he was still too old for her. After Josh hit on a college recruiter, who thought she was too old for him, Josh felt the disappointment from the other side. In an effort to help Riley and Lucas finally ask each other out, Maya asked Lucas out on a date.
Riley was angry with Maya at first, until she realized why Maya did so. When Lucas finally sought to ask Riley out, Cory gave Lucas and Riley his blessing, so long as they took Maya and Farkle along with them. After Riley and Lucas shared their first kiss, Farkle tried to kiss Maya - who blocked him with her hand.
Undaunted, Farkle passionately kissed Maya's hand, which left her surprised and impressed. When Cory decided it was time for his class to bury a time capsule containing things important to them, Maya was initially reluctant to place anything in the capsule as she thinks it's better not to have any hopes, to avoid disappointment.
Before Cory, Topanga and Shawn were going to go to Philadelphia to dig up their own time capsule, Riley and Maya weren't interested in going along. After Shawn talked to Katy about how the time capsule could bring up memories of his relationship with Angela, Maya and Riley decided to join them. When the gang returned to New York City to open the time capsule, Maya watched on as Shawn opened the time capsule and rediscovered many mementos of his relationship with Angela, who he clearly still felt strongly for.
Maya feared she'd lost any hope for Shawn starting a relationship with her mother. Riley, Cory and Topanga pushed Shawn to see his potential role in Maya's life. When Shawn told Maya he didn't know what he was supposed to be in her life, Maya asked him to just be out there for her.
When the kids finally put objects in their own time capsule, Maya requested that no one else was to know what she placed inside: As Maya placed the photo in the capsule, she quietly said "Hope is for suckers.
When Shawn asked if Katy's lip gloss, which was a different flavor to the one Angela used, was a better flavor, she told him it was different. After Shawn asked if different is better, Katy told him it depends on the life you're having, but she is ready for different. Riley and Maya had an epic fight that very nearly ended their friendship. When Riley refused to apologize for not standing up for Maya about something Lucas said, they stopped talking to each other.
Seeing how serious the fight was, Cory recruited his older brother Eric to settle the friends' dispute. As Eric worked them through the issue, Maya admitted the problem was not so much that Lucas called her a "short stack of pancakes" but that Riley didn't defend her. Riley didn't defend her because she thinks it's true, but Maya admitted she's defended Riley from similar comments about her height and klutziness even though they are also true. Maya said that even if she is short, she never felt short until Riley didn't have her back.
After Eric helped the friends patch things up, Maya became more comfortable with the fact she's going to be short. Topanga, whom Maya greatly admires, showed her how even a short stack of pancakes like her can do fine- the two are nearly the same height.
Maya is a beautiful girl with a pale complexion, blue eyes and medium length blonde hair which she often wears in a variety of different styles; straight, curly, or naturally waved.
She has a slim, yet toned and athletic figure, and is slightly short for her age. Katy Hart is Maya's mother. She loves Maya dearly, but spends a great deal of time working to make ends meet. She tries her best to take care of Maya and works as a waitress in a diner, waiting for her big break to fulfill her dreams of becoming an actress.
Gammy is Maya's grandmother who lives with her. She is a caring soul, with a zest for life. She seems very fond of Maya's friends, Riley and Farkle. Kermit is Maya's absent father. In Girl Meets Father , Maya states that he started a new family. In Girl Meets the Truth she states her father has not sent anything to her in a long time. Step-mother Kermit's wife is Maya's step-mother, who married her father, and the mother of her half-siblings. Presumably, she and Maya have never met. It is unknown what role, if any, she played in the breakup of Maya's parents.
Shawn is the oldest family friend of the Matthews. He and Maya have bonded over their similar backgrounds. Maya now seems to welcomes the possibility of Shawn becoming romantically involved with her mom, Katy.
Shawn is a father figure in her eyes. In Girl Meets Upstate Shawn shows how fond he is of Maya saying he cares about her deeply and loves her. Maya first alluded to having half-siblings in Girl Meets Father. She has at least has two , a half brother and a half sister. May is Maya's great grandmother who abandoned her musical dreams late in , but 50 years later, her guitar found its way home to Maya, thanks to Riley. Maya is not particularly proud to be from "a long line of Clutterbuckets.
Riley is Maya's best friend. While Riley is the angel who keeps it safe, Maya is more of the rebel who doesn't believe in following the rules. Even though they are nearly opposites, the two are extremely close and loyal to each other no matter their differences. Riley admires Maya and wants to be like her, much to her father's dismay.
Riley and Maya are considered inseparable. As seen in Girl Meets Ski Lodge Part 2 , Maya and Riley will do anything to protect each other due to the caring and loyal relationship they have. Farkle is Maya's close friend and yet sometimes they don't always agree on the same thing.
He has a crush on her, even though they often butt heads. Riley always tries to save him by intervening. Farkle also has a crush on Riley and he always tries to get the two girls to fall in love with him. Either way, they are extremely protective of each other, and Maya really cares about Farkle and thinks of him as a close friend.
Throughout the episodes, Maya is annoyed by Lucas' "Country Boy" attitude, and continually calls him one of her many different nicknames for him. However, they definitely care about each other's feelings and opinions, and will defend each other if needed.
They have shown romantic attraction in Girl Meets Creativity. Then in Girl Meets Texas Part 3 , they go into two dates. Maya cares for Lucas, and she doesn't want anything to happen to him because if it happened she wouldn't know how to handle the change. It is unknown if Maya teases Lucas because she likes him, which was suggested by Riley, but Maya didn't confirm nor deny it. In Girl Meets Legacy , it's revealed that Lucas likes Maya back, but doesn't fully understand his feelings for her.
Isadora Smackle is a friend of Maya's, despite the false pretense their friendship began as. Not only is Cory Matthews Maya's seventh grade history teacher, Maya also sees him as a father figure, since her father is absent from her life. Even though Cory doesn't think that Maya is a good influence on Riley, he doesn't try to break up their friendship. In Girl Meets Boy , he got Maya a smartphone and a set of color pencils.
In Girl Meets the Forgiveness Project , Maya is upset over the response her real father gives about leaving and says it's not her fault, she tells to him that she failed the class assignment, Cory tells her that she's not failing, and he didn't expect her to move on quickly and forgive, just know what happened.
Topanga has acted as a mother figure to Maya ever since she and Riley became friends. Topanga thinks she's fierce and trusts her as well. Zay and Maya are friends. They appear to be close friends and Maya along with Riley pretends to be Zay's girlfriend in Girl Meets Texas Part 2 , to help him impress his crush, Vanessa. Josh is Maya's friend and romantic interest. Maya started to like Josh instantly in Girl Meets Home for the Holidays , but he never felt the same way.
In Girl Meets First Date she tells him about her dream while they talk and stare at one another on the subway. She also mentions that what she feels for Josh is not just a "crush" but is much more.

Oh, don't worry, Mr. You wrote her a note. We should hang out sometime. You make me happy. You don't pay enough attention to me. This isn't working out. We can still be friends. Yeah, how else can he keep tabs on all the hoedowns and cattle pageants?
Riley, any thoughts on this that may come out of your mouth, in word form? I have no one at home to help me with my homework. You going to tick-tock shake your body time? Because you know it's not a square dance, so not going to be a lot of dosey-doeing.
I'm not doing it Yes, sir, it's us. We hope that one day, one of us will be lucky enough to become the future Mrs. Farkle Minkus and have a lot of baby Minkii. Ooh, I could use one of those. Give me that and I won't call you Ranger Rick all week. That is one of the many arrows in my quiver. Why do I have to be a part of your plan to befriend every little woodland creature?
You know, someday you're going to make somebody a wonderful fortune cookie. I've already got my thing. Riley's gonna be a success and I'm gonna sponge off her until she gets sick of me. What if nothing happens for her? Sir, Riley can't end up like that, she's my meal ticket. It's the most important thing in the world. I'll find him myself and I'd hate to be him when I do. You wanna chip down on your cloud of awesomeness? You are making us normals feel bad. Awards are a scam. A girl like me never had a chance, Matthews.
Never had a chance. I want my Farkle back. We are not as good without him. If you tell him I said that, I will jack you up son. Pom-poms are stupid and pyramids made of humans freak me out. I bet Auggie could say the same thing about me, Riley. He just wanted to spend time with you. I'm glad you like it. I never know what to get people. Is it possible to post recipes that start with flour and not cake mixes or other pre-packaged ingredients? There are no cake mixes where I live. Susanne, I am sure you can probably use a cake recipe you have on hand for this.
I have made poke cakes before with homemade cake recipes. I hope this helps. This is one terrific cake, absolutely delicious! Saw this on Pinterest just now and knew it was yours — stunning photos Ashley!!!! I want to dig right in. I love pina colada anything! This version sounds sooo amazing. Hope you are having a great week.
Sarah Miss Candiquik recently posted.. I need a big ole slice of that right now!!!! Seriously Ashley this looks amazing! Chandra The Plaid and Paisley Kitchen recently posted.. I need someone to stage an intervention. Oh this cake has been haunting and following me all day. Aimee ShugarySweets recently posted.. Red, White, and Blue Icebox Cookies. This looks like summer in cake form! Nicole Young, Broke and Hungry recently posted.. OMG this looks killer! So THIS is it!
Hayley The Domestic Rebel recently posted.. I am SO trying this Ashley! I just love it! Trish — Mom On Timeout recently posted.. Delicious as it is….. My friends love my cooking, but this will take it to a new level, I am sure! I am having a pig pickin this weekend and can not wait to make this! I already know my family and friends are going to go crazy over this!
I may need to make 2! This cake recipe is one of the best out there. I toasted the coconut and added some toasted finely chopped macadamia nuts for the top. Love the recipes you put out there, always a winner!!! This is one for a very special meal. Your pictures are fabulous and I love coconut on anything! I was just wondering if anyone has making this cake with coconut Malibu instead of the pineapple juice….
Someone made this and brought it over recently after I had baby 2 and I ate the whole thing by myself. I have since been craving it and with a party tomorrow I just had to make it!!! Oh how i love this cake.. My roommate and I loved this recipe and ate it for pretty much every meal until it was gone! Two questions though — is there a specific amount of pineapple juice needed for the liquid component?
Secondly, my cake came out delicious but kind of soggy, ugly, and difficult to serve. Do you have any suggestions to make it more tidy to serve at a gathering? I am not a fan of boxed cake mixes. But this sounds so yummy, I will use my favorite cake recipe and make it. Could you please let me know what butter cake mix is as I live in the U. Are there any non-pineapple versions or something close? My mom has been making this for years, but without the pineapple.
It is one of our family favorites, usually made on Birthdays. Made the cake with the DH Coconut Supreme and it came out wonderful. Next I am going to use a Pineapple Upside Down cake mix. Thanks for the recipe, Ashley! Pina Colada drinks have rum in them. If I wanted to add rum flavoring, what do you suggest? I had a question. I thought it said something about having it on the cake but I didnt see it in the recipe. I just saw what to do with the reserved juice from it. I have made this cake twice with great results!
I just made this cake for the first time using a box of yellow cake mix that I already had in pantry. After out of oven, I poked several holes and while pouring mixture all the liquid was running to the sides of cake. My cake was slightly domed but I thought the liquid would just soak through. After sitting in fridge overnight, I still see the liquid on the sides of cake. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
Hi Ashely, OMG i love this recipe! I will be getting married in October and we will be having a cupcake wedding cake with 4 flavors. I would love to use this as one of them, but I am worried about the texture of icing, as I know the cake will have to be set up early. I wonder will be icing hold up to room temperature. The cake I am not worried about, as those can be done overnight by the baker presumably. I recently made this cake, and it was phenomenal.
I used a pineapple supreme boxed cake mix, and for the water called for in the box mix, I substituted pineapple juice. I also added some crushed pineapple to the cake mix when I baked it yes I love pineapple Next time I may cut back on the amount of condensed milk slightly. The cake did absorb the liquid, but it took quite some time. I would recommend allowing the liquid to completely absorb before adding the crushed pineapple to the top of the cake.
I did 2 teaspoons of coconut extract for the whipped cream topping, and completely covered the top of the cake with shredded coconut and snipped up maraschino cherries.
This is definitely going to be my summer cake I bring to parties!! I grew up eating this cake in my family. Everyone always say that they love it. I sometimes do tweak it a little by using either coconut milk or pineapple juice as a substitute for the water the cake mix requires.
I sometimes even add the crushed pineapple in the cake batter. My friend even asked me for my recipe once and she said that she added shredded coconut in the cake batter. Just wanted to let you know I took your recipe and tweaked it for a gluten-free cake for my Celiac daughter. Baking for gluten-free is often difficult.
Thanks for the inspiration, you made our Easter celebration that much grander. Could you make the cake using the pineapple juice instead of water and mixing the crushed pineapple into the cake? Your email address will not be published. In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals. Pina Colada Poke Cake. Piña Colada Poke Cake. Are you with me? Pull the elastic-waist pants out of the drawer and keep eating.
