  • 5.0 from 4 reviews Dreamboat Pineapple Coconut Cake Print Prep time 20 mins Cook time 40 mins Total time 1 hour A slice of this Dreamboat Pineapple Coconut Cake is the taste of a tropical paradise on a plate. Author: Grok Grub Recipe type: Dessert Serves: 8 Ingredients Cake
  • ½ cup coconut flour, plus more for greasing pan ½ cup arrowroot flour ½ tsp baking soda ¼ tsp salt ½ cup crushed pineapple ⅓ cup honey ⅓ cup coconut oil 2 tsp vanilla extract 4 eggs Frosting 1 cup palm shortening, at room temperature ⅓ cup honey ½ tsp vanilla extract 4 tbsp arrowroot flour 3 tbsp coconut flour Assembly Dried pineapple rings Toasted coconut flakes Cacao nibs Instructions Preheat the oven to 350° F. Grease a round 8" cake pan with coconut oil, line with parchment paper, and set aside. Whisk the coconut flour, arrowroot flour, baking soda and salt together in a medium mixing bowl. In a blender, combine the crushed pineapple, honey, coconut oil, vanilla extract and eggs until smooth. Gradually fold the wet ingredients into the dry, mixing the batter until there are no lumps. Spoon the mixture into the prepared cake pan, smooth the surface with the back of a spoon and then bake in the preheated oven for approximately 40 minutes or until a tester inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool while you prepare the frosting. Using a hand mixer, whip the frosting ingredients in a small mixing bowl until very smooth. Once the cake has cooled, remove it from the pan and frost the top and sides with a butter knife or specialty frosting spreader. To make the dried pineapple rings, preheat the oven to 170° F. Cut away the rough exterior of a fresh pineapple, then slice into very thin rings. Lay the rings on a silicone baking sheet or wax paper-lined baking sheet and bake in the oven for 2-3 hours or until the rings are dried and browned on the edges. Press the pineapple rings together in the center of the frosted cake. Spoon or pipe a dollop of frosting in the center of the pineapple rings, then sprinkle toasted coconut flakes and cacao nibs over and under the pineapple slices as preferred. Serve room temperature. 3.3.3077
