Eggless Pineapple cake

Serves: 10-12 people

  • Maida/ Plain Flour: 1 ¼  cup
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk: 200 ml
  • Baking pwd: 1 tsp
  • Baking soda: ½ tsp
  • Cardamom pwd: ¼ tsp
  • Salt: ¼ tsp
  • Unsalted Melted Butter: ½ cup (~100 gms)
  • Pineapple crushed (Tinned): ½ cup (Seive the juice and keep aside for later use)
  • Pineapple Juice: ½ cup (Seived above from the tinned pineapple slices)
  • Pineapple Juice: 3-4 tbsp (Seived above from the tinned pineapple slices) (for brushing on the cake)
  • For icing:
    • Double Extra Thick Cream: 300 ml
    • Powdered sugar: 5-6 tbsp
    • Vanilla essence/ Pineapple essence: 2-3 tsp
  • For decoration:
    • Grated chocolate/ glaced cherries
    • Pineapple pieces
    • Gems/ Choco chips

  • Preheat the oven at 160◦C.
  • In a pan add all the dry ingredients: Maida, Baking soda, Baking pwd, cardamom pwd, salt. Mix well.
  • Now add condensed milk, melted butter, pineapple crushed, pineapple juice (1/2 cup). Gently fold it. Don’t stir rigorously. Pour the mixture in the greased baking dish.

  • Bake at 160◦C for 25-30 mins.
  • Take it out of the oven and let it cool.
  • To check if the cake is ready:
    • Put the knife in the center of the cake and the knife should come out clean. Also, the cake will start leaving sides once its ready.
  • Run a knife around the edges of the cake to separate the cake from the dish.
  • Now put a plate on the baking dish (having cake).Turn the dish upside down on plate.
  • Tap gently on the top (at the back of the dish). The cake will come out on plate.

  • Brushing with pineapple juice: While the cake is still warm, prick it with fork gently (make sure that you don’t break the cake). Now spread the pineapple juice (3-4 tbsp) on the cake with spoon/ brush. (This will keep the cake moist)
  • For icing:
    • Beat the cream till it becomes thick. (I did with handmixer)
    • Add powdered sugar and vanilla essence. Mix properly.
    • Spread the cream on the cake on all sides.
    • Decorate with pineapple pieces, gems or choco chips.
    • Sprinkle some grated chocolate on the top.

Brushing the cake with pineapple juice is an important step that helps to keep the cake soft and moist.
