Discover the nostalgic Granny Cake recipe, a delicious blend of pineapple, peaches, and rich coconut frosting. Perfect for any occasion!



For the Cake:

    • Nonstick cooking spray
    • 1½ cups sugar
    • 1 can pineapple, in juice, drained
    • 1 can peaches, in juice, drained
    • 2 large eggs
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking soda

For the Frosting:

    • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
    • 1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
    • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup evaporated milk


1. Preheat the Oven

Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Spray a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray to ensure your cake comes out cleanly.

2. Prepare the Cake Batter

In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, drained pineapple, drained peaches, and eggs. Mix well until all ingredients are fully integrated. Add in the all-purpose flour and baking soda, stirring until the batter is smooth and evenly mixed.

3. Bake the Cake

Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish, spreading it evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

4. Prepare the Frosting

While the cake is baking, start making the frosting. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the butter, sweetened coconut flakes, brown sugar, and evaporated milk. Stir continuously until the mixture is smooth and thickened, which should take about 2 minutes.

5. Frost the Cake

Once the cake is done baking, remove it from the oven and immediately pour the hot frosting over the top. Spread the frosting evenly over the cake using a spatula. Allow the cake to cool to room temperature before serving.
