Pineapple Coconut Upside Down Cake




Pineapple and coconut is a classic and one of the best combos. This pineapple coconut cake is light, fresh and perfect for spring. It is made with Greek yogurt and contains no butter which is replaced with only 25 grams of unrefined coconut oil. Which means, it isn't that bad for you! Just make sure you use unrefined coconut oil. To make the cake lighter I used reserved pineapple juice from a can but I'd love to try it with coconut milk in the future. However, this was moist enough and not overly sweet. The top is made with soft dark brown sugar which makes it gooey and caramelly. This almost guilt-free cake is perfect for breakfast! 

Pineapple Coconut Upside Down Cake 

90g / 1 cup quick cooking oats
35g desiccated coconut
125g / 1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
150g / 3/4 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
160ml / 2/3 cup pineapple juice from a can
25g / 1/8 cup unrefined coconut oil, melted
50g / 1/4 cup soft dark brown sugar
9 pineapple rings from a can

1) Preheat oven to 180C / 350F. Prepare a 20 x 20 cm / 8 x 8 inch silicone baking dish or line a metal baking dish with parchment paper.

2) In a small bowl, combine together oats, coconut, flour, baking powder, salt and white sugar. Set aside.

3) In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add pineapple juice and melted coconut oil and stir to combine. 

4) Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir to combine. 

5) Sprinkle the bottom of the baking dish with dark brown sugar. Arrange pineapple rings on top of it. Pour the batter into the baking dish and bake in oven for 30-35 minutes or until the toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

6) Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Invert cake and let cool completely before slicing and serving.
