Pina Colada Layer Cake
 
Recipe by Zola Nene
 
For the sponge:
125g butter, softened
250g Castor Snow
3 large eggs
165ml LANCEWOOD® Double Cream Plain Yoghurt
Zest of 1 lime
220g cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 cups desiccated coconut
 
For the filling:
4 cups diced pineapple
¼ cup castor sugar
Juice of 1 lime
¼ cup rum
 
For the frosting:
500g LANCEWOOD® Full Fat Plain Cream Cheese, at room temperature
250g butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 cups sifted icing sugar
 
To decorate:
Toasted coconut shavings
 
Preheat oven to 180C and grease and line 3x 20cm round cake tins.
Beat together butter and castor sugar until light and fluffy.
Whisk in eggs, yoghurt and lime zest.
Sift together flour and baking powder then fold into the wet ingredients.
Gently fold in the coconut, then spoon batter into the prepared tins.
Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.
Leave cakes to cool in the tins for 5 minutes before unmoulding and cooling completely on a wire rack.
 
Make the pineapple filling by placing all the ingredients into a pot, then bring to the simmer and cook on gentle heat for 5 minutes, remove from the heat and leave to cool completely.
 
For the Cream Cheese Frosting, in a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla together until smooth. Add the icing sugar and mix well until smooth.
 
Assemble the cake by placing one sponge onto a serving plate, then top with 1/3 of the cream cheese frosting, then top with half the pineapple filling. Repeat layering, finishing off with a layer of cream cheese frosting.
Top the cake with toasted coconut shavings to decorate.
