Made this cake yesterday, and it came out surprisingly moist and delicious. Especially without any butter or oil added, the only fat came from the cream cheese frosting. But you will be thrilled by the taste and the texture of this cake.

I halved the recipe, used all whole wheat flour, 10 ounces fresh pineapple processed in the food processor, and baked the cake in a 8 by 8-inch baking pan. Make sure to generously butter and flour the cake pan, mine came out beautiful without any stuck on the bottom.

I reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup in the batter; for the frosting, I used 3 ounces light cream cheese, 1/3 cup of powered sugar, and I also toasted coconut flakes that was added into frosting in a 350 degrees F toaster oven for 10 minutes, which made the cake taste even more delicious.

This cake is definitely the kind of cake that I'd love to eat everyday, it tastes so good and it's also packed with goodness that's good for you!
