Pineapple and Coconut Yumminess

I think pineapple and coconut is a fabulous combination.  Especially in a dessert, when the coconut is a little toasty.  I love that this is also a fairly healthy dessert or snack since it uses whole grains.  In addition, it is as easy as a box cake with far yummier results.

Fruity Snack Cake

2 cups white whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup light brown sugar unpacked
2 eggs
1/4 canola or veg oil
1 20 oz can crushed pineapple with juice
1/4 cup plus 1/2 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1/2 cup sliced almonds or chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.  Grease a 13x9 baking pan.  In a bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt, sugar, eggs, oil, fruit and juice and 1/4 cup coconut.  Stir till combined.  Pour into greased pan.  Sprinkle with remaining ingredients and bake 35-40 minutes till done.  Cool at least 10 minutes before cutting.

This is really yummy with pineapple sherbet!


  1. Ooooo, that sounds yummy... Hey when you get a chance, could you do me a favor and post up how you made those home-made marshmellows? (I don't care what flavor, they all rocked)
