Ingredients

CAKE:
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
6 eggs
1 teaspoon coconut extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained
FROSTING:
1 cup butter, softened
4 cups confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons coconut extract
3 to 4 tablespoons water
FILLING:
1 jar (18 ounces) pineapple preserves
Dried pineapple slices and toasted coconut, optional


In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in extract. Combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda; add to the creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, beating well after each addition.


In a food processor, cover and pulse pineapple until almost smooth. Stir into batter. Transfer to three greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.


Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.


For frosting, in a large bowl, beat butter until fluffy. Beat in the confectioners' sugar, extract and enough water to achieve a spreading consistency.


To assemble, place one cake layer on a serving plate; spread with half of the preserves. Repeat layers. Top with remaining cake layer. Frost top and sides. Garnish with pineapple slices and coconut if desired.
