Pineapple & Coconut Bundt Cake

Pineapple & Coconut Bundt Cake with Cream Cheese frosting and toasted coconut.

My husband loves coconut so he's always asking me to make something with it.  I love pineapple so I thought the two would make a perfect combination.  This recipe doesn't call for any butter or oil, however the addition of the pineapple juice makes the cake moist and dense.  I topped it off with a cream cheese frosting that I added while the cake was still warm so it seeps down into the cake as well.  Then sprinkle on some toasted coconut for a pretty garnish.  This cake uses everyday ingredients found in your pantry and you can mix it up in one bowl.  This is definitely a simple and delicious cake!
