Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup sweetened coconut flakes, toasted
  • Oil for grill grates
  • 4 wedges of angel food cake, about half of a store-bought bundt
  • 4 pineapple slices
  • 4 tbsp salted caramel sauce for drizzling

Instructions

To toast the coconut flakes:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Place coconut flakes in a single layer on the sheet. Toast for 5-10 minutes, or until the coconut flakes are golden-brown and just becoming fragrant. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.

To grill:

  • Heat a clean grill to medium heat and brush your preferred cooking oil on grates. Place angel food cake wedges and pineapple slices on grill.
  • Grill angel food cake wedges for about 2 minutes, or until grill marks appear on the bottom side. Flip and repeat on the other side, then remove to a plate.
  • Repeat the same grilling process for the pineapple slices, however it make take an extra few minutes per side.

To assemble:

  • Place one angel food cake wedge on a plate, and top with one pineapple slice. Drizzle with caramel sauce and sprinkle toasted coconut flakes over top. Serve while warm.

Notes

It's important to oil the grill grates so the angel food cake and pineapple slices don't stick!
You can use store-bought caramel sauce, or your favorite homemade version. I've linked to my fave salted caramel sauce recipe in the ingredient list above.
Increase or decrease the quantity of ingredients to change up the serving size!
 
Nutritional info is estimated to be one-eight of an angel food cake, 1 pineapple slice, 1 heaping tbsp toasted coconut, and 1 tbsp of caramel sauce per serving. Values will change depending on quantities of and which kind of caramel sauce you use, etc.
