Chocolate Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Pineapple Upside Down Cake is a delicious recipe that makes a perfect dessert for any occasion. This is not the classic recipe of pineapple upside down cake as I’ve wanted to pair pineapple with coconut and chocolate. The combination is absolutely irresistible.

This recipe is very easy and quick to prepare and is a must-have for anybody who love 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!
