#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.

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.
