Preparation

Peel the pineapple and cut into cubes, and then caramelize them in a pan with a tablespoon of sugar and a tablespoon of butter over a low heat for 15 minutes. Meanwhile beat the eggs with the sugar and add the butter, previously melted in a pan. Add the coconut flour, then the flour with the baking powder, a little diced coconut and the caramelized pineapple. Pour the mixture into a cake tin and bake at 200°C for 45 minutes.

Tips
If you want a truly perfect sponge cake, make sure you don’t open the oven during cooking, because your plum cake may not rise so well.
Trivia
The coconut is excellent for health: it provides lovely ‘milk’, as well as a delicious and delicate flesh.
