Pineapple Sour Cream Cake



This is a moist cake, not overly sweet because I've reduced the sugar content, and it's perfect with a nice cup of tea............ may even consider making it for X'mas too!






I let it cool in the Bundt tin for about 5 mins, before turning it over and quickly dusted some icing sugar on top for decoration, while the cake was still warm .......



the dried pineapple were still crunchy after being baked







Doesn't it look inviting ....... come share it with me!

    The cake tastes a bit sour, and it's moist. You must mix in sour cream well, if not a streak will form at the bottom.

    Angie
    It is not filling too because of the low sugar content.

    Yes, you can toss in some chopped nuts if you wish, should combine well with the pineapples.

  11. Great tropical recipe, I haven't used pineapple in cake before. I wonder how it would be with some coconut milk/cream in place of some of the sour cream, mmmm.

  12. Cheah, this is such a lovely bake! Love the whole combo of pineapple & sour cream. I'm unable to find sour cream over my living area, so I use yogurt instead when recipe needed! Thanks for sharing this. Cheers.

    You should try baking cakes with pineapples, I like it because it's a bit sourish and crunchy, maybe it'll also combine well with coconut milk. I've never tried baking cakes with coconut milk, thinking of my cholesterol level, but cookies, yes, very aromatic.

    Yes, yoghurt will be fine too. You have a nice weekend.

    I haven't tried using tinned or fresh pineapples, but if you want to try with tinned ones, you'll need to drain off the syrup and coat with flour to prevent them from sinking. Don't think advisable to use fresh ones, because they may be sour.
