Delightful Pineapple and Coconut Cake Recipe

This cake is easy, super-moist and requires only 1 bowl.

So what are you waiting for?

It’s the perfect cake and only takes a handful of minutes to prepare. It’s also very yummy and delightful to eat, plus it has zero butter in it! I’ve made mine with fresh pineapple because that’s what I had in the fridge, but it can easily be adapted to frozen raspberries or nectarines as well.

Pineapple and Coconut Cake Recipe

  • 1 cup Self Raising Flour
  • 1 cup desiccated Coconut
  • 1 cup Caster Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 cup fresh Pineapple, finely diced
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence

5 steps for making this recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees C or 340 degrees F. Grease an 8′ round cake tin, or ring tin.
  2. Combine flour, coconut, sugar, egg and milk in a large bowl. Add the oil and vanilla essence and stir to combine. Add the pineapple.
  3. Pour the cake mixture into the greased cake tin and bake in the oven for approx 40mins.
  4. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack before turning the cake out onto a plate.
  5. Personally I don’t think it needs icing, but feel free to whip up a glace icing to pour over the cake once it has cooled for added naughtiness
