Coconut-Pineapple Cake

100 grams coconut flour
80 grams sweet white rice flour
50 grams tapioca starch
120 grams coconut palm sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
1/4 Cup coconut oil, melted
3/4 Cup + 3 Tablespoons pineapple puree*
1/4 teaspoon coconut extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 9 x 11 or 9 x 13 (more brownie like) glass pan and set aside. In a large bowl, mix together coconut oil, pineapple puree, eggs and coconut extract. In a medium bowl, pour each of the measured flours, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar. Stir until just combined. Pour the dry into the wet slowly blending until just combined. Pour into prepared pan, and smooth out the top. Bake for 30-40 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in pan. Frost with pineapple frosting when cool.

*Pineapple puree: This is an approximate. I used about 1/2 a can of pineapple chunks in juice, and pureed them into a liquid. There should be about a 1/2 cup of puree left after you finish making the cake. This is for the frosting.

Pineapple Frosting

2 Cups powdered sugar
1-2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/2 Cup pineapple puree

Mix well with hand or stand mixer. This is almost a glaze like frosting.
