10 servings

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 6 ounces crushed pineapple with juice (one 8-ounce can)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tsp powdered stevia extract
  • 3 tbsp date sugar
  • 2 eggs, warmed to room temperature and beaten
  • 1/3 cup plain nonfat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup soymilk or milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp maple flavoring
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 cups grated carrots

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup unbleached white flour
  • 2 tbsp soy flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2tsp salt

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Oil an 8 to 9-inch springform pan or a 6 x 10-inch cake pan.

    Soak the coconut in the pineapple and juice. Use all the juice from an 8-ounce can of pineapple but only 6 ounces of the pineapple. Set aside.

    Soften and cream the butter in a large mixing bowl. Cream in the stevia extract and the date sugar. Gradually cream in the beaten eggs. Don't worry if the butter separates.

    Thin the yogurt with the soymilk or milk and add to the butter mixture. Mix in the vanilla and maple flavoring. Stir in the walnuts, the coconut-pineapple mixture and the carrots.

    Sift the flours, leavenings, cinnamon, and salt together twice in a separate bowl.

    Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, stirring just until blended. The batter will be stiff.

    Spoon the batter into the cake pan, and bake for 1 hour. Cool in the pan.

    Release the pan and top with Cream Cheese Frosting (following).
