Full Answer

To make the coconut pineapple cake, beat together two eggs, 2 cups sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together 2 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, salt and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with a 20 ounce undrained can of crushed pineapple, then stir in 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. Pour the batter into a 13-by-9-inch pan and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 35 to 40 minutes. Allow the cake to cool on a wire rack before frosting.

For the frosting, beat an 8-ounce package softened cream cheese, 1/2 cup butter and 2 cups confectioner's sugar until blended. Frost the cake with the cream cheese icing, and top with 1/2 cup shredded coconut. Store the cake in the refrigerator until ready to serve. The cake could also be topped with whipped cream icing and toasted coconut for a different texture and flavor. Also, use half the recipe and bake in a 8-inch square pan for a smaller cake.
