Print this recipe
This coconut and pineapple cobbler is truly a little slice of paradise. This recipe combines a coconut-flavored cake layer with a rum-infused pineapple filling to create a cobbler that will brighten up even the darkest of days.
Canned pineapple makes this recipe super easy to make at home, but you could also easily use fresh; just cook it in a saucepan with the brown sugar before adding it to the casserole to ensure that it's fully cooked through by the time the dessert is done. You can add even more coconut flavor to this dish by subbing a coconut rum for the dark rum, or you can leave it out completely and sub vanilla extract instead.
