GLAZED PINEAPPLE-COCONUT TORTE

Serves: 10

Ingredients

1 package(s) (6.8-ounce) sponge cake layer

2 tablespoon(s) (up to 4) orange juice 

3 tablespoon(s) apricot spreadable fruit, see step 1

1 prepared (peeled, cored) pineapple

3 tablespoon(s) apricot spreadable fruit, see step 2

1/2 cup(s) sweetened flaked coconut

Directions

Cut pineapple (about 1 1/4 pounds) into 1/4-inch rings; you should have about 15. Note: Fifteen juice-packed canned pineapple rings (about one and one-half 20-ounce cans) may be substituted for prepared fresh pineapple.

Arrange rings in one layer on prepared cake; brush with another 3 tablespoons apricot spreadable fruit. Arrange strips of foil around cake edges to prevent burning; broil, about 6 inches from heat source, 2 to 3 minutes until edges of pineapple rings begin to brown.

Remove cake from broiler, leaving broiler on; sprinkle coconut over pineapple. Return cake to broiler; broil 1 to 2 minutes longer until coconut is lightly browned.

Remove cake from broiler; using large spatula, slide from cookie sheet onto serving platter. If desired, lightly sprinkle cake with confectioners' sugar; serve warm.
