Top me once, shame on – shame on you. Top me – you can’t get topped again…

5 Feb

OK, so this really has nothing to do with the “fool me once…twice” quote from George Dubya, but the cake does get topped twice…no foolin’!

First off, I do not really like coconut.  I mean this overly sweetened processed stuff found in most recipes and candies.  However, this recipe prompted me to make my first EVER purchase of sweetened coconut flakes…I’m glad I did!

Top Me Twice Cake

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3.5 oz crushed pineapple, undrained (the smallest can to purchase is 8 oz, I used 1/2)

Grease a 12×8 pan. Combine sugar, vanilla, and eggs in a large bowl.  Beat 2 minutes on medium speed.  At low speed add flour, salt, soda, and pineapple.  Mix 1 minute and pour into pan. Sprinkle with topping mixture (see below).  Bake for 40-45 minutes in 350* oven.  In the last 5 minutes, prepare sauce and pour over warm cake (sauce below).

Top for cake

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Mix and add to top of cake before baking.

Sauce for Top me Twice Cake

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light cream (I used light whipping cream)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix all sauce ingredients and pout over cake in last 5-10 minutes of baking while still in oven.
