How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350f degrees.
  • Grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan. (I use a glass loaf pan)
  • Drain pineapple over a bowl in a fine mesh sieve. Reserve the juice for the glaze.
  • Meanwhile, cream butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition and scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl. Stir in extracts and yogurt.
  • In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Fold flour mixture into the wet ingredients until almost combined. Then add the pineapple and coconut and continue folding until just combined.
  • Spoon batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake in the center of the oven for 55-60 minutes. A toothpick inserted will be clean or have dry crumbles when done.
  • Cool in the pan for 20 minutes, then remove loaf and finish cooling on a wire rack.
  • Mix powdered sugar with pineapple juice, adding a tablespoon of juice at a time until it's reaches your desired consistency.
  • Pour the glaze over the cooled loaf cake, and top with toasted coconut if desired.
  • *To toast coconut, place a cup or so on a baking sheet and bake at 350f degrees for 6-8 minutes. It's done when the center is still white and the outside is golden brown. I like to keep it in a Ziploc bag in the freezer and have it on hand for recipes like this.

    Delicious!!! I used pineapple tidbits, lactose free vanilla yogurt, Earth Balance instead of butter.I used extra vanilla as i did not have coconut extract . Other then this i followed the recipe, the aroma in the house was wonderful. The loaf was easy to take out of the pan and it was nice and moist, the topping was an added bonus of taste. Thank you Cosmicmother for this wonderful recipe, it is a keeper and i will make it again.

    Amazing!!! I loved this loaf and so did DH. I've wanted to make this for sometime and today was the day. I didn't have any yogurt so I used the sour cream as suggested, other than that I made the loaf exactly as written. The topping I did change just a tiny bit. I used the icing sugar, pineapple juice and a tiny bit of skim milk. Oh and a cap full of vanilla. Thanks for sharing!!!
