ingredients

  • 1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups diced fresh or canned pineapple chunks, blotted dry and coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch-square baking pan with cooking spray.

Whisk the whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.

Whisk the egg, yogurt, oil and vanilla in a large bowl until smooth. Add the dry ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula until just blended. (Do not overmix). Fold in the pineapple. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan.

Combine the pecans and the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar in a small bowl. Sprinkle over the batter.

Bake the cake until the top is golden and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for about 20 minutes. Cut into squares and serve warm.

Tip: Variations: This quick coffee cake can be made with a variety of fruit. Try rhubarb, blueberries or peaches. If using frozen fruit, increase the baking time by 10 to 15 minutes.
