Moist and fluffy, with a strong pineapple flavour and crushed pineapple baked right in. It is such a great, fruity cake for any season, with some whipped cream and fresh fruit. Great as a Mother’s Day treat!
Sieve together 1 cup flour , 1 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp baking soda.
Whisk together 1 tsp vanilla essence, 1/4 cup milk, 1 cup sugar, 3 large eggs and 1/4 cup oil.
Add 1 cup pineapple chopped fine and 1 cup sugar to a pan and stir well until it dries into flakes. Take 1 cup pineapple juice, strain and boil with 1 cup sugar.
Whip one cup of fresh cream.
Wet the two halves of the cake with the pineapple sugar syrup and sprinkle pineapple flakes in between, along with fresh cream and sandwich the cakes together.
For the yellow glaze – Melt 500 gm white chocolate, 1 tbs butter and 3 tbs rich cream, 3-4 drops of yellow food colour and whisk well. Pour it over the cake.
You may also use yellow cake jelly for topping the cake.
