Deliciously fruity, buttery, crispy & with a bit of crunch: This simple sponge cake with pineapple and coconut ensures that holiday feeling on your plate!
Such a pineapple sheet cake is a nice alternative to the classic sunken fruit cake with apples. Grandma’s recipes are often the best. But now and then a little whistle doesn’t hurt either. And this juicy pineapple cake with coconut gets it from its topping, among other things. But more on that later.
First of all, the creation of the recipe. With the result, the juicy pineapple cake made from batter, I am happy. But up to the photos the whole thing cost me a few gray hairs ?. Not because the preparation is complicated – on the contrary. It’s actually a really simple pineapple cake from the tin. But if you accidentally leave it in the oven for half an hour longer than planned and then don’t have enough fruit left for the second round, that doesn’t exactly make you happy ?. Note: never bake quickly in the evening before you put the children to bed. That can take a while. And longer than such a sunken pineapple cake needs … So I had to do the recipe all over again. This time unfortunately with less (still available) fruit. Which is why the pineapple and coconut cake looks a little different in the pictures than the perfectly successful original.
The cake is a variation of Grandma’s variant with apples and cinnamon. Unlike this one, the Pineapple cake from the sheet less fruit, but not only that on, but also im The dough is sticky. In addition, the rather moist, sweet pineapple pieces need a little less liquid and sugar. The quick sponge pineapple cake with coconut (instead of almonds) is refined and topped off. A bit like the pineapple and coconut Swiss roll
This makes the sponge cake with pineapple and coconut an eye-catcher
So that it gets a nice color, I also smeared it with a light yellow frosting (colored with naturally colored fruit powders). I recommend you that Cake with canned pineapple to bake. In terms of consistency and sweetness, these are somewhat more “predictable” than the fresh ones. In addition, you are so sure that the fruit enzymes do not interact with the dairy products in the dough.
My sunken one Sponge cake with pineapple from the tray last got a topping made of coconut flakes and chopped pecans. This is optional, but adds a little crunch to the pastry. Are you in the mood for delicious sheet cakes? The lightning-fast, colorful sunken fruit cake, the pineapple upside down cake, the classic lemon cake or the variants with chocolate or currants are great. Have fun baking!
