Preheat oven to 190°C/170°fan/Gas 5. Grease and line a 900g (2lb) loaf tin.
In a mixing bowl, mix together flour, 50g (2oz) coconut, caster sugar, butter and eggs. Fold in pineapple chunks (reserve juice) and dried fruit. Spoon into prepared tin and smooth the top. Sprinkle with remaining coconut. Bake for 40–45 minutes until a skewer comes out clean (cover with foil if browning too quickly).
Mix 5 tablespoons reserved pineapple juice with granulated sugar and spoon over the cake as soon as it comes out of the oven. Leave to cool in tin for 10 minutes before cooling on a wire rack.
