Chocolate Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Chocolate Pineapple Upside Down Cake is a mouthwatering and delightful dessert that never fails to impress. While the classic recipe is undeniably scrumptious, I wanted to put a unique twist on it by combining the tropical flavors of pineapple, coconut, and chocolate

It’s a delightful treat that can be whipped up in no time, perfect for satisfying those spontaneous dessert cravings or surprising guests with a special treat.

The magic begins as the sweet aroma of caramelized pineapple and coconut fills the air while the cake bakes to golden perfection. The luscious combination of tangy pineapple, creamy coconut, and rich chocolate is simply irresistible. With each bite, you’ll experience a symphony of flavors that meld together harmoniously, creating a taste sensation like no other.

This recipe is very easy and quick to prepare and is a must-have for anybody who loves chocolate and pineapples.

The cake is best served slightly warm with a big scoop of ice cream on top. Hope you will try it out and enjoy it!

How to make Chocolate Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Begin by preheating your oven to 350F (180C). Grease a 9-inch (23cm) pan and line it with parchment paper.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the sugar and cook until the sugar dissolves. Pour this mixture into the prepared pan and arrange the pineapple slices on top. Set aside while you prepare the chocolate cake batter.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, shredded coconut, baking powder, and salt.

In another bowl, mix together the butter and sugar until thick and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, along with the coconut extract, and mix until well combined.

With the mixer on low speed, gradually alternate adding the flour mixture and coconut milk until everything is well incorporated.

Add the melted chocolate to the batter and mix until fully incorporated.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan over the pineapple slices.

Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few crumbs.

Allow the cake to cool in the pan for a few minutes, then invert it onto a serving platter.

Serve the cake slightly warm with a generous scoop of ice cream on top. Enjoy your delicious pineapple chocolate cake!
