German Pineapple Tart

A recipe with serious wow-factor. The tinned fruit and coconut give this impressive layered German pineapple tart a fabulous tropical taste and beautiful colour. Bake just before you want to serve it, as it tastes best warm from the oven accompanied by lashings of cream or custard.
