At the beginning of this year I received an email from WordPress with the subject line: Your 2010 year in blogging. It provided me with wonderful stats regarding my blog. Most of all it confirmed what I had suspected about the most popular search term bringing visitors to my sewing blog, which you can guess by the title of this posting. PINEAPPLE COCONUT CAKE! Okay, how funny is that. I know I laughed for a long time.
So for all my visitors searching for a recipe for pineapple coconut cake, here’s one of mine.
To my family, sorry, this is not Aunt Nora’s recipe. My mother made a fabulous pineapple coconut cake and I failed to write down the recipe while she was alive. I watched her making it once and I remember that she used cream cheese and sour cream in the frosting, and use pineapple juice in the cake batter. One day I’ll start experimenting and maybe I’ll be able to replicate that cake.
This recipe is a combination of things I have learned over the past 35 years from family, friends, cooking shows and cookbooks. This one has fluffy frosting, pineapple ginger filling and coconut pastry; but it’s not a difficult cake to make.
Let me know how your cake turned out. ENJOY!
