This cake was so popular at work, by the time I got to photograph it most of it was gone! Birg also makes a gluten-free version with riceflour and almond meal. Most excellent.

3 eggs
1 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup rice bran or grape seed oil
440g can crushed pineapple, drained of juice (Birg used pineapple chunks, very nice)
2 mashed bananas
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1 1/3 cups self-raising flour
Pinch of salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Cream cheese icing
250g cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup icing sugar
Finely grated zest and juice of half a lemon

1. Heat oven to 160°C fan bake. Grease and line the base of a 22cm round cake tin with nonstick baking paper.

2. Place the eggs and sugar in a bowl and beat until pale and creamy, then beat in the oil. Stir in the drained pineapple (but not the juice), mashed bananas and coconut.

3. Sift flour, salt and cinnamon over egg mixture and stir to combine. Spread mixture into prepared tin and bake for 65 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Remove cake to cool completely.

4. To make cream cheese icing, beat cream cheese until smooth then beat in icing sugar, lemon zest and juice. Spread over cooled cake and decorate, as desired.
