Having a balance 3/4 can of pinapples, I came across this Pineapple Coconut Slice recipe from my Women's Weekly Baking Book.
These pineapple coconut slices were very delicious indeed. While it was baking in the oven, the smell of this cake was very tempting, and seriously, I can't wait for it to be ready so that I can try these slices.
Here we have, the slices are all ready!!! After cooling it for about 10 mins, I had quickly sliced a small little piece to try...:-p
Well, it was indeed very welcoming, with the nice fragrant of the dessicated coconut & pineapple, it had gave a very refreshing taste. Texture wise was soft & moist.
Hmm, they ain't the gals fav... as usual......hehehehe....
I had brought the rest of the pineapple coconut slices to the office for my colleagues to try. They all said it was very yummy, soft & moist. Looks like this recipe had passed off well with the testers once again... hehehe....
If you are a fan of pineapple & coconut, you might wanna try this recipe.:-D
