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.

  6. Hi! It looks great. I would love to have it with a cup of hot coffee. Will it taste better added with some kind of almond or walnut?

    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.

  14. lovely bake. dried pineapples? can use fresh or tin pineapples?

    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.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
