How to make it

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously grease an 8- or 9-inch square baking pan or 9-inch round cake pan. or To feed a larger crowd, double the recipe and bake it in a 9x13-inch pan.
  • 2. Lightly spoon the flours into a measuring cup and level with a knife. Combine flours and remaining dry ingredients in a bowl. Whisk well and set aside.
  • 3. In a separate bowl, whisk together honey, crushed pineapple and eggs. Stir in dry ingredients until combined, scraping the bowl to mix in all the flour. Fold in raisins.
  • 4. Pour batter into prepared pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake 30 to 35 minutes on middle rack in preheated oven until firm and slightly golden on top and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • 5. Prepare Hot Caramel Sauce by combining coconut milk, butter, honey and salt in a 2-quart pot and bringing it to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and boil until the sauce reduces to 1 cup and becomes thick and caramelized. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. (If you prepare the sauce ahead, allow it to cool. Then cover and refrigerate it in a heatproof bowl. Reheat it gently in a toaster oven at 225 degrees until warm and runny.)
  • 6. To assemble cake, run a knife around the edges of the pan and turn the cake onto a large plate or platter. Poke holes all over with a skewer or chopstick. Pour sauce over cake. Garnish with orange slices and serve. Cover and refrigerate any leftovers after 3 days.

  • For Egg-Free Fruit Cocktail Cake,
  • replace 2 eggs with 3 tablespoons applesauce (added to wet ingredients) + 1 teaspoon additional baking powder (added to dry ingredients) + 1½ teaspoons egg replacer mixed with 2 tablespoons water (added when you combine the wet and dry ingredients).
