To be honest if you had asked me about cake flavor combinations that I love, coconut and pineapple cake would not have been the first to come to mind. That was before I discovered this amazing recipe! Now it’s right there at the top of my list!

This pineapple and coconut cake recipe is super easy to make too! Start by creaming butter and sugar before beating in eggs and sour cream. Sift in the dry ingredients and finally mix in the coconut and pineapple. Bake in a preheated oven until a skewer comes out clean. Once the cake has cooled completely, dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!
