This healthier take on an old-fashioned favourite lets you have your cake and eat it too! In the original recipe, icing is normally high in sugar and often has little nutritional value, so we’ve curbed that by turning the cake on its head… literally!
The pineapple slices make a great sweet addition and work well with the coconut. Using Greek yoghurt also helps bring the total fat content down without sacrificing taste or texture.
It you end up with leftovers, pop the cake into an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to three days. This cake can also be frozen for up to two months if wrapped tightly in cling wrap. To defrost, leave it in the fridge overnight.
Serves: 1 cake equates to 12 slices
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 35 – 40 mins
