Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9-inch square pans.
  2. Beat 3/4 cup butter in a bowl using an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Slowly drizzle oil into creamed butter while continuing to beat butter until mixture is smooth. Beat white sugar, 1 cup at a time, into butter mixture until incorporated. Add 2 teaspoons coconut extract and vanilla extract; mix well. Beat eggs, 1 at a time, into butter mixture, beating well until each egg is fully incorporated.
  3. Mix flour, alternating with coconut milk, into butter mixture, ending with flour until batter is just mixed. Mix 1/2 cup pineapple juice into batter. Pour batter into the prepared pans.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of each cake comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes.
  5. Mix confectioners' sugar and 1/4 cup pineapple juice together in a bowl until sugar is dissolved. Beat 1 cup butter into sugar mixture until light and fluffy. Add 1 teaspoon coconut extract; beat until icing is smooth, adding more confectioners' sugar until desired consistency is reached.
  6. Place 1 cake on a serving platter and top with a layer of icing. Place second cake over icing layer. Cover entire cake with remaining icing. Dust sides of cake with shredded coconut and top with crushed pineapple.

I made the icing first. It turned out a hot mess because it was just pure butter with pineapple flavoring (from the juice). Luckily I was able to whip it into shape by adding MORE confectioners sugar (1 1/2 c), whipped w/ hand mixer 1cup of heavy whipping cream. I did not make the cake.

No access to coconut milk here in Mexico, but did find Cream of Coconut, which I used half cup this & half milk. Cake is very grainy-I would advise using parchment paper on bottom of cake pans-I lost about a third in removal. Very difficult to frost also. 2-9" pans took 42 minutes to bake.Threw in pineapple & flaked coconut in batter. Wont make again, texture wasnt good.
