Cooking Time:

< 45 min

Cooking Style:



Sponge cakes:
125 g butter, softened
250 g castor sugar
3 large eggs
165 ml LANCEWOOD® Double Cream Plain Yoghurt
Zest of 1 lime
220 g cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
150 g desiccated coconut

Pineapple filling:
650 pineapple, diced
50 castor sugar
Juice of 1 lime
50 ml rum

Cream cheese frosting:
500 g LANCEWOOD® Full Fat Plain Cream Cheese, at room temperature
250 g butter, softened
5 ml vanilla essence
450 g icing sugar, sifted

To decorate:
Coconut shavings, toasted


Sponge cakes:
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line three 20 cm in diameter round cake tins.

Beat the butter and castor sugar together until light and fluffy.

Whisk in the eggs, yoghurt and lime zest. In a separate bowl, sift the flour and baking powder together and fold it into the wet ingredients. Gently fold in the coconut.

Divide the mixture evenly and spoon into the prepared tins. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Leave cakes to cool in the tins for 5 minutes before unmoulding and cooling completely on a wire rack.

Pineapple filling:
Add the pineapple, castor sugar, lime juice and rum to a medium sized pot and gently simmer for 5 minutes.

Remove from the heat and leave to cool completely.

Cream cheese frosting:
Using a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla essence together until smooth. Add the icing sugar and mix until well combined.

Assemble the cake by placing one sponge cake onto a serving plate. Top with a ⅓ of the cream cheese frosting and half of the pineapple filling. Repeat the layers, finishing off with a layer of cream cheese frosting.

To decorate:
Top the cake with toasted coconut shavings.
