Ingredients

  • 3 cups gluten-free flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cup pineapple juice from can
  • 1 1/2 cups pure maple syrup divided
  • 3/4 cup melted coconut oil divided
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 20 oz can Dole pineapple slices in 100% pineapple juice

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together the eggs, the juice from the pineapple can (about 2/3 cup), 1 1/4 cups maple syrup, 1/2 cup melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients and mix to combine.
  • Pour the remaining 1/4 cup melted coconut oil in the bottom of a 9 by 13 inch pan. Arrange 8 pineapple slices in the pan, then drizzle with the remaining 1/4 cup of maple syrup. Spread the batter on top. (Note: You can add a few more half slices of pineapple if desired.)
  • Transfer the pan to the oven and bake on the center oven rack for about 30 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove the pan to a wire rack, and loosen the edges with a spatula. After letting the cake cool for a few minutes in the pan, turn the cake onto a serving platter. Carefully remove the pan, and let the cake cool on the platter before cutting.
