Hawaiian Pineapple Coconut Pound Cake

A nice summer treat straight from the tropics of sunny Hawaii.  This dessert is great on its own or topped with fresh fruit and whipped cream.  If you really want the taste of Hawaii, stir in 1/2 c. chopped macadamia nuts!

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple, drained but not squeezed dry
  • 1 cup flaked coconut 
Beat butter and sugar until fluffy.  Add in eggs, one at a time.  Mix in flour, baking powder, salt and ginger.  Stir in pineapple and coconut.  Spray two medium or one large loaf pans with cooking spray.  Put dough into prepared pans.  Bake at 350 degrees for 60-65 minutes for medium pans and 65-70 minutes for a larger pan.
