#BundtAMonth : Pineapple Bundt Cake


Canned fruits were spoilt for choice during the Chinese New Year and in order not to miss out on the attractive bargains,  I bought some home as gifts or for dessert.  Chanced upon a recipe for Pineapple Bundt Cake calling for undrained crushed canned pineapple and I was game for an experiment!   Although the texture was a bit dense, it wasn't a disappointment as the cake was moist, soft and  full of pineapple flavour.














Recipe for Pineapple Bundt Cake (adapted from tasteofhome.com with slight modification)

Ingredients
  • 8 oz butter
  • 7 oz caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2  tsp lemon juice
  • 11 oz plain flour
  • 1  tsp baking powder
  • 14 oz crushed pineapple with juice (I blended them)
  • A pinch of salt
Glaze :  4 Tbsp icing sugar +  3 tsp lemon juice, mix well.

 Method
  1.  Blend the pineapple with juice, set aside.
  2. Sift the flour with baking powder and salt, set aside.
  3. Cream the butter with sugar till light, soft and creamy.
  4. Add in the egg yolks one at a time, mix well, followed by the egg whites.  Mix till well incorporated.
  5. Fold in the sifted flour and mix well, scrapping from the bottom and sides of the mixing bowl.
  6. Mix in the crushed pineapple.
  7. Pour the batter into a well greased and flour dusted 10 cup Bundt pan.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for 55 to 60 mins.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  9. Let cake cool for about 15 mins., before inverting it onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Drizzle the glaze over the cake.

  1. Nevertheless I bet a slice of this would taste much more good with a cup of coffee to go with it, right?

  10. Cheah, that's a very beautiful cake! The glaze makes it so pretty and elegant. I guess some cakes are meant to be dense but as long as it is moist and soft and flavourful, I love it!

    1. No, it was all well incorporated into the batter and also makes the cake moist.

German Butter Cookies CNY 2015 ~ 德国牛油曲奇

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.
