Sometimes the simplest cakes are the best ones. 

Sure, I will never say no to a layer cake with frosting and fancy decorations - but sometimes I just want to make something simple. A recipe I can whip together without too many complicated ingredients, or without washing 65 different bowls and dishes in the process.

This cake may just be the simplest one yet - but it's also one of the most delicious. Using just 7 ingredients (8 if you use fresh pineapple!), this pineapple coconut cake is the fluffiest, most delicious cake you'll make - and you can make it in minutes.

Even my fussy coconut hating family members LOVED it!

Gluten Free Easy Pineapple Coconut Cake Recipe using Canned Pineapple - 7 Ingredients, Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Healthy Recipes Using Pantry Staples


Made with canned pineapple in juice or fresh pineapple and pineapple juice, this is the perfect cake to use up ingredients you probably already have in the oven - and is an easy cake recipe to start with if you're not much of a baker.

It mightn't be the prettiest to look at, but once it bakes and you slice yourself a piece, you'll forget all about looks and float away in the pillowy heaven that is this cake. 

Trust me. It's that good. 

Better still, it will also work with any other kind of canned fruit you have at home. Just drain, mix and bake!

So let me share the recipe with you! >>

Easy Gluten Free Pineapple Coconut Cake Recipe | Using pantry staples and just 7 ingredients (8 if you use fresh pineapple instead of canned pineapple), this gluten free cake recipe may be one of the easiest dessert recipes. A super light and fluffy cake that will become a family favorite.

Ingredients:

  • 150g butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup (130g) caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups (150g) gluten free plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup pineapple juice
  • 2/3 cup (65g) shredded coconut
  • 2 cups (~350g) pineapple (use fresh or drained canned pineapple in juice)
  • 1/4 cup (25g) shredded coconut, to top

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 180C/355F.
  2. Line a 9x13" baking dish with baking paper and set aside.
  3. In a mixer, cream your butter and sugar until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides as needed to ensure everything is incorporated.
  4. Add your eggs to your butter mix, mixing until just combined.
  5. Sift in your flour and baking powder and add your coconut and pineapple juice, mixing on low until just combined.
  6. Once your mixture is combined, mix on medium speed until light and fluffy.
  7. Add in your pineapple and mix until combined (the cake mix will be really light and fluffy and not super thick).
  8. Spoon your cake mixture into your prepared cake tin, smoothing to form an even layer.
  9. Sprinkle on your coconut and bake for 35-40 minutes or until cooked through and golden on top.
  10. If your top is browning too quickly whilst your cake is still not cooked through, loosely place a piece of foil on top and continue baking until a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake removes clean.
  11. Allow to cool on a wire rack before slicing and serving.
  12. This cake will keep for 2-3 days in an airtight container at room temperature and can also be frozen to defrost and eat later.

Notes:

Notes: If you're using canned pineapple, drain the juice from the pineapple, reserving 1/3 cup to add to your cake mix.
