Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt 5 tablespoons butter and add to a 9-inch square baking pan, tilting to coat bottom and sides. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar and arrange pineapple slices in 2 slightly overlapping rows.

  • In a large microwave-safe bowl, microwave coconut milk and remaining 4 tablespoons butter in 20-second increments until butter is melted but not hot. Whisk remaining cup sugar to remove lumps, then add to bowl. Whisk in eggs, lime zest and juice, and vanilla.

  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, allspice, and salt. Add flour mixture to coconut milk mixture in 3 additions, whisking until smooth. Pour batter over pineapple and spread in an even layer. Tap pan on counter to remove any air bubbles. Bake until cake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, 1 hour. Let cool on a wire rack, 1 hour. Run a knife around edges before inverting onto a platter. Serve warm.
