Number Of Ingredients 19

3 large eggs, at room temperature
1 cup (227g.) coconut milk (We buy ours canned from the baking aisle)
1/3 cup (70g) vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons (6g) coconut extract
1 teaspoon (4g) rum extract
3 cups (342g) cake flour......*(see below if you do not have cake flour)
2 cups (400g) granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon (15g) baking powder
1/2 teaspoon (3g) salt
1 1/2 sticks (12 T) ( 170g) unsalted butter, softened slightly, still cool to the touch (do not soften in microwave) you can cut into 1/2 inch slices onto waxed paper to soften more quickly
One 20 ounce can (567g) of crushed pineapple
1/2 cup (200g) granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons (14g) cornstarch
2 sticks (1 cup) (226g) unsalted butter, slightly softened
2 (8oz.) (452g) cream cheese (use full fat cream cheese) straight from the refrigerator
1 1/2 teaspoon (6g) coconut extract
1 teaspoon (4g) rum extract
6 to 6 1/2 cups ( 747g) powdered sugar
1 bag (14oz (396g) of sweetened coconut

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour three 8 inch cake pans
  • In a small bowl , combine eggs, coconut milk, oil, coconut extract and rum extract. Blend with a fork and set aside.
  • Put the dry ingredients, cake flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into the bowl of your mixer and whisk for at least 30 seconds to blend the ingredients.
  • With the mixer on low speed gradually increasing to medium speed gradually add the slices of butter to the dry ingredients a few pieces of butter at a time. Beat until the dry ingredients are crumbly and moistened. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl, there should be no spots of dry flour in the bowl.
  • SLOWLY add approximately 1/2 of the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and beat for 1 1/2 minutes. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl then add the remaining egg mixture in 2 pourings, scraping the bowl and beating for 20 seconds after each addition.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes
  • Makes about 6 1/2 cups batter
  • Works well for cupcakes - cupcakes bake up with very little doming
  • Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium heat.
  • When the mixture begins to boil, stir constantly until it begins to thicken, approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Keep in mind that it will thicken even more as it cools.
  • Cool completely in refrigerator before using.
  • Add the butter to the mixing bowl and beat until smooth.
  • Add the cream cheese that has been cut into small to medium size pieces, beating with the butter until well blended and smooth.
  • Add the rum and coconut extracts.
  • Slowly add the powdered sugar, beating until smooth.
  • Use the frosting while it is still chilled. If it becomes too soft, refrigerate until it firms up a bit or put in the freezer for 5 minutes or so to return to a good piping consistency.
  • Spread 1 cup of coconut evenly on a baking sheet and bake for approximately 5 minutes. Stir after a couple of minutes. Remove from the oven when some of the coconut is slightly brown. If it is baked too long it will become dry and chewy. I press some of the browned coconut into the untoasted coconut that is covering the cake. It is an interesting look on the cake, but completely optional.
  • Place a cake layer on a cake board or serving stand and spread with a thin layer of frosting. Pipe a dam of frosting around the edge of the cake layer (approx. 1/2 inch in). Spread a layer of pineapple filling over the thin layer of frosting and inside the dam. The dam will keep the pineapple filling in place as you begin to stack your layers. You can also sprinkle a bit of coconut over this if you like. Repeat with the next layer.
  • Crumb coat the cake with a thin layer of cream cheese frosting and refrigerate for 1 hour or freeze for 15 minutes to firm everything up. Now you will be ready to spread on the final coat of frosting. Press in the coconut on the sides and top of the cake, adding a bit of the toasted coconut here and there.
  • Optional: Using a 2D tip, decorate the top and place maraschino cherries and shown in the picture of the cake.
