Paleo Pineapple Coconut Mug Cake

Pineapple Coconut Cake

I must confess, I wanted an evening treat.  Something to sit down with and just relax.  This isn’t super sweet.  It’s subtly sweet, and when you get a bite of pineapple it is just amazing.  It kind of reminds me of pineapple upside-down cake.  I don’t make a lot of “mug” cakes, so this was a little scary.  Now, I’m doomed because it was so easy and turned out so good.  I’m a little nervous.  I may become a mug cake addict.  Yes, I know, that is not a mug.  I used my measuring cup.  It was a great size and microwaves better than my mugs.  I suppose I could call it a measuring cup cake, but paleo pineapple coconut measuring cup cake sounds a little ridiculous, so I’m calling it a mug cake.


1 Tbsp coconut flour

2 Tbsp tapioca flour

1 tsp coconut sugar

1/8 tsp baking soda

1 Tbsp full-fat coconut milk

1 Tbsp pineapple juice (I used the juice from my canned pineapple chunks)

1 egg

1 Tbsp coconut butter

6-8 pineapple chunks

Optional Garnish:

1 tsp full-fat coconut milk

Sprinkly of coconut sugar

Directions:  Mix coconut and tapioca flour in a large mug or small, microwaveable measuring cup.  Add coconut sugar and baking soda.  Add full-fat coconut milk, pineapple juice, egg, and coconut butter.  Mix thoroughly.  Add in pineapple chunks.  Microwave for 3 minutes.  I drizzled a tsp of full-fat coconut milk and a sprinkle of coconut sugar on top of mine to garnish it.  I ate mine warm and it was so good!

    Going to college soon, so this might be helpful :).
    Btw, I did not know there were so many choices of coconut ingredients – flour, sugar, milk, butter, etc.

      Oh it’s mind-blowing how many coconut products there are. I think the world is going through a coconut craze right now. For good reason. It has a lot of nutritional value. I will say, if you’re new to coconut products, coconut flour has a mind of it’s own and typically does better when mixed with another flour. Hence the tapioca flour in the recipe. Also, if you live near a Sprout’s, all coconut products are 25% off at the moment. 😉
