PINEAPPLE CAKE

Cake is everyone's most favorite dessert.I had some canned pineapples in my pantry and i wanted to make something with it other than the usual pineapple rasam (which i will talk about in a different post).Pineapple cake was the first thing that came in my mind.I used a basic vanilla cake recipe as a base.To give it the pineapple flavor i used pineapple juice as the liquid ingredient and to top it i also added chopped pineapples in the batter to give it that extra zing.The cake so moist and tasty.My husband said its one of the best cake i ever made.I just couldnt be happier.
This goes for the Recipe marathon -day 6


INGREDIENTS

All purpose flour(bleached) - 2 1/2 cups
sugar - 2 cups
eggs - 3
baking pdr - 2 1/4 tsp
pineapple juice(unsweetened) - 1 cup
oil - 1/2 cup
vanilla - 2 tsp
salt - a pinch
pineapple chunks - 1 cup,chopped



METHOD

Preheat oven to 350 deg F. Sift all the dry ingredients-flour,baking pdr and salt and keep aside.In a mixing bowl whisk together eggs and sugar for a couple of minutes.Mix in the oil,vanilla essence and pineapple juice.Then slowly add the dry ingredients and mix it well.Do not overmix.Stir in the chopped pineapple chunks in the end.Spray the cake pan with a non stick spray and pour the batter in it.Bake the cake for 40-50 mins or until the toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.Let it cool before removing the cake from the pan.Store it in room temperature,closed for upto 5-6 days.Serve it just plain or with chocolate sauce .
