  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut (optional)
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 20 ounce can crushed pineapple
  • For the Frosting:
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup nonfat milk

  2. Coat a 9 X 13-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray
  3. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and coconut (if using)
  4. Add eggs and vanilla, and stir in crushed pineapple.
  5. Pour into prepared cake pan and bake for 30-40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
