Pineapple and Coconut Sheet Cake with a tasty frosting topped with toasted coconut flakes is a wonderfully rich cake, best if made one day ahead.
If your family is anything like mine, we have to have something sweet after dinner.
I am not a big cake baker. To be honest, I am not even close to being one, but every once in a while I do make a tasty cake.
Well, I know it does not take a rocket scientist to make a cake, I get that. However, for me was like having two left hands.
It certainly is not the recipe because I would always pick the best-reviewed cake recipe to bake and mine would always come out more like a loaf of bread.
I could make anything with dough, but the cake was this whole another dimension to me.
Anyhow, with a bit of practice and numerous hours watching youtube, I have created my first cake that not only looked like a cake, but it tasted delicious. I was so excited!
Just to mention that cake excitement happen only a couple of years ago so it’s not like I was 15 and made my first cake. Haha!
Well, then I have had another problem. Yes! I could not decorate the cake for shit. I still cannot.
Thankfully, we have these sheet cakes that do not require fancy-schmancy decorating.
I think it looks so much better like this. Looks more homemade, don’t you think?!
This pineapple cake with the addition of coconut is just incredible. I really liked it.
Every recipe that I found to test had a crazy amount of sugar, and some just didn’t make any sense, so I tested and retested until I created a recipe that is mine.
The whole sheet pan was gone over one lazy weekend afternoon when we celebrated my husband’s birthday.
I decided to make this cake simply because he loves pineapple and coconut.
However, he did say if I only had a tub of chocolate with me. Ah! You can’t please them all the time.
Needless to say, all of us loved it so I wanted to finally share with you guys.
