Pineapple and Coconut Squares found on page 42
Mmm...this week's cake has butter, coconut and pineapple in the cake, topped with a butter & cream cheese frosting, sprinkled with toasted coconut! (yes, the cake had the taste of butter)
I think that my Papa would like this one....
~I strained the crushed pineapple as instructed, and then went and accidentally dumped the whole thing in the cake anyway...but I don't believe that it suffered any. =)
~Check it early, the cake was a little (at least) over done at 27minutes, so my suggestion is 20-25min.
~This recipe called for toasted coconut...I've never toasted coconut before, so I looked around and found the instructions ((HERE- I used the stove top method)).
~This cake made me think of what an old cookbook or magazine may call "lunch box cake"...just a quick, easy cake that a good wife or mother could just pop in the lunch box.
Maybe this Mother made such a recipe for her three girls!? =)
