Gluten-Free Coconut Pineapple Cake with coconut vanilla frosting. The two layer dairy-free cake is soft, moist, filled with pineapples and flavoured with coconut. But, it is the special coconut vanilla glaze that makes this into an extra special dessert. If you are into decorating, add a few edible flowers and chunks of pineapple for the finish.

Gluten-Free Coconut Pineapple Cake is a Hawaiian-Style Dessert.

I feel that this is probably our favourite gluten-free and dairy-free cake yet. The pineapple and coconut are the best combination, kind of Hawaiian dessert…don’t you think? 

What makes the coconut vanilla glaze special?

The glaze has less sugar, only a 1/3 of powdered sugar that you would typically use in a frosting recipe. The glaze is made mostly with coconut milk, fresh lemon juice and vanilla, simple and delicious!

By using coconut milk, there is less butter and sugar. The traditional frosting for a cake is made mainly of powdered sugar and butter. To add texture, this glaze is made with arrowroot starch and a small amount of dairy-free butter. You will love it!!
