#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?

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

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
