Caribbean Delights 7-UP Cake with Papaya Coconut and Macadamia Nuts

Pin It Now!

 OH BOY Tropical sweet cake,

Perfect for any HOT Summer day (or cold winter day when you want to be reminded of a Hot Summer Day)!

There are a couple of things about this recipe... First, think of it as a crumble, meaning go nuts when you add the fruit.  that cake works just as well with about any kind of fruit...

Keeping the tropical theme, Mango slices would work perfect.  But change the pineapple cake to an Autumn spice cake and this would be great with Apples!  Cherries... Peaches... Pineapple... Same recipe, different but same terrific texture and a world of possibilities for flavors.

And speaking of terrific flavors, this is a 7-UP Cake, no oil, no extra eggs, no added sugar.  This is a wonderful way to serve up something unique...

But Delicious!
