Pineapple berries and coconut cake

Ramona's Cuisine -


If you are using frozen forest fruits or berries, make sure they are well drained and contain no water or ice. If they do, depending on how much, you might have to reduce the amount of the pineapple juice.
This cake can very well be a gluten free one by replacing the flour with a gluten free one.
