Pineapple who? No fruit here in this upside-down cake, just a brown sugary streusel-like layer of walnuts, coconut and granola baked under (then flipped over) a vanilla coffee cake.


  • 2/3 cup butter, divided
  • 1/3 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granola
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees . Place half of the butter in a 9-inch round cake pan. Place pan in oven for 5 minutes or until butter melts. Remove pan from oven. Add coconut, brown sugar, granola and walnuts; stir to mix thoroughly. Spread evenly in pan. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. Melt remaining 1/3 cup butter; cool slightly.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, egg, granulated sugar, yogurt, orange zest and vanilla; stir until smooth. Stir in flour mixture just until combined. Gently spread batter over granola mixture in pan.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Loosen cake from sides of pan. Invert onto a serving plate. Replace any topping that sticks in pan. Serve warm or cool.
