Units Scale


  1. The original recipe uses fresh pineapple, which is pan-fried in butter.
  2. I skipped all that because I’m much too lazy, and went straight for the canned pineapple bits (bonus: I thickened the drained juice with gelatin and yogurt to make a second delicious dessert).
  3. I also had only enough pineapple for half the original recipe.
  4. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
  5. In another bowl, melt butter.
  6. Mix with egg, sugar, vanilla, and lemon juice.
  7. Add dry ingredients to the wet, and mix in the pineapple and coconut.
  8. Since this makes a small cake, I baked it in a little loaf pan – the original (double this size) fits in a round cake pan.
  9. It doesn’t rise much, but it’s perfectly dense and juicy and delicious.
  10. Bake until cake is browned, 30-35 minutes.
  11. Transfer the cake once done to a wire rack to cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes.
  12. Turn the cake upside down onto a plate to remove the pan and then flip back again and return to rack to cool completely.
  13. Can be served with icing sugar over top, or like mine with a bit of cream.

Origin of Piña colada

The piña colada “pineapple”, and colada, “strained”) is a cocktail made with rum, cream of coconut or coconut milk, and pineapple juice, usually served either blended or shaken with ice. It may be garnished with either a pineapple wedge, maraschino cherry, or both. There are two versions of the drink, both originating in Puerto Rico.
