Here’s a simple recipe for Pineapple Coconut Napoleons, a dessert treat that is as easy to make as it is unique. Pair this with a sweet or off-dry wine such as our Lumière de Vie Revelation. The round structure of this wine and its dry finish will really appeal to those with a Hypersensitive Vinotype.
Pineapple Coconut Napoleons
- 8 fresh pineapple rings (about 1/4 inch thick, divided)
- 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
- 8 half-inch-thick slices prepared angel food cake (about 5 ounces)
- 4 teaspoons toasted unsweetened coconut
Preheat broiler to high.
Place 4 pineapple rings on a small baking sheet and sprinkle with brown sugar. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat source just until the sugar is melted, about 2 minutes.
Whip cream with an electric mixer until stiff. Gently fold in yogurt and vanilla.
Divide the remaining pineapple rings among 4 plates. Top each ring with 2 tablespoons of the cream, 2 slices of cake, side by side, and another 2 tablespoons cream. Top each stack with a ring of sugared pineapple, sprinkle with coconut and serve.
This delicious recipe for Pineapple & Coconut Napoleons pairs perfectly with the Lumière de Vie Revelation.
Our Lumière de Vie California Revelation is a white blend made from grapes in the Lodi region. This off -dry wine reveals aromas of fresh tropical fruit such as pineapple, mango and guava. Later, apple and pear flavors followed by orange zest enhance the bouquet. It has a rich and syrupy nose. The attack in the mouth is round, almost sweet, with a pronounced minerality. This is a straightforward wine with a dry finish.Learn more about the benefits of the WineShop At Home Artisan Collection Wine Club.
