Coconut Pineapple Cake - Jaseyscrazydaisy

"I found this on Jasey's Crazy Daisy Blog....glad I did. This is a terrific cake that is super moist and doesn't call for vegetable oil but, coconut milk. This stored in the fridge and frosted with the whipped cream frosting lasted a whole week without the frosting separating or becoming soggy. At no point was this a soggy cake. Definately give this one a try!!"

  • Prepare pans. If using two 9 inch cicle pans grease them, add a layer of traced parchment paper, then grease and flour. If using a 9x13 inch pan, spray the bottom with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, beat cake mix, eggs, and coconut milk with mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping occasionally. Stir in coconut and pineapple. Pour into pans.
  • Bake as directed per pan size on box. Don't overbake.
  • Cool 15 minutes.
  • While cake is cooling add enough milk to reserved pineapple juice to make 1 1/2 cups.
  • Combine pineapple milk mixture, sugar, and 1/2 cup coconut in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 1 minute.
  • Poke holes into cake using a fork, straw, or even a kabob stick.
  • Carefully spoon evenly over warm cake allowing liquid to soak into holes.
  • Put cake into the fridge to cool completely.
  • Frosting:

  • Beat heavy whipping cream, 1/3 cup sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla until soft peaks form. (If making a layer cake, you may want to beat it just a little extra so that it sticks to the sides of the cake. You can also spread a little of this prepared cream between layers.
  • Frost cake with prepared whipped cream. Cover cake with remining coconut.
  • Keep and store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

I'm always on the look out for new tried and true recipes and love to share the recipes that I enjoy making. Growing up as a child my mom taught me how to cook/bake and I later entered food competitions at our local fair. I hope to some day share my love of cooking with my children. I love to cook casseroles..I'm not a huge fan of meat but will toss it in casseroles for my meat and potato husband. :)
