  • 1/2 cup chopped pistachios
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (optional)

  3. Fold in the crushed pineapple, chopped pistachios, shredded coconut (if using), and pineapple juice until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan(s) and spread it out evenly.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes for a 9×13-inch pan or 25-30 minutes for round cake pans, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Remove the cake(s) from the oven and allow them to cool completely in the pan(s) on a wire rack.
  7. Once cooled, frost the cake with your favorite frosting, such as cream cheese frosting or whipped cream, and garnish with additional chopped pistachios and shredded coconut if desired.
  8. Slice and serve this Pistachio Pineapple Cake to enjoy its delicious flavor combination!
