This started as a recipe from my mom called "Sloppy Pineapple Cake" but it wasn't gluten free. So I had to change it. And then I seem to have this problem following directions in general, recipes in particular, so I adapted it some more. It is freakin' awesome, but you will need a cup of coffee or some milk to go with it. Here ya go:
Pina Colada Cake
2 c. sugar
2 c. flour (if your GF use 1c. rice, 1/2 c. oat, and 1/2 c. tapioca plus 2 t. xanthan gum)
1 tsp baking soda
20 crushed pineapple
1/4 c. butter (if dairy free use margarine)
1/4 c. coconut oil
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2/3 c. coconut milk
Mix eggs and sugar until well blended. Add in flour, soda and pineapple (juice and all!) and mix until just combined. Pour in greased 9 x 13 and bake for 35-40 minutes at 350. Remove from oven and poke with fork or toothpick all over. Add all the rest of the ingredients to a sauce pan and boil for 5 minutes. Gently pour glaze over warm cake. Eat half of pan, feel guilty.
Now I know not everyone keeps coconut oil on hand (though they should, it is really good for you) and if you are one who doesn't, your welcome to use a whole stick of butter and your cake will still be great, just a little less coconuty. Now off with you, get to your kitchen and start baking!
