Pineapple & Coconut Napoleons


From EatingWell:  January/February 2014

Prepare this beautiful stacked cream and pineapple napoleons recipe when you want a special dessert without a lot of effort. We use store-bought angel food cake to keep this pineapple dessert brilliantly simple and fast.

4 servings, 1 Napoleon each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes



  1. Preheat broiler to high.
  2. 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.
  3. Whip cream with an electric mixer until stiff. Gently fold in yogurt and vanilla.
  4. 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.
