  1. Hi Manjula, while making frosting for pineapple cake Can we add pineapple essence so that it gives more pineapple flavor? If yes in how much quantity should it be used?

  2. dear manjula aunty
    amazing recipe.. quick. simple and yum…

    please let me know if i can store this cake out of refrigerator for how many days.. (without icing and the last moment syrup addition into pores) i want to send it for someone ..


  3. Hello,

    This cake came out super good. I don’t use eggs and this recipe was so so so perfect! It rose well int he pan and tasted amazing. I used fresh whipped cream as frosting and decorated with Maraschino cherries and cut pineapple. Unbelievably good recipe. Thank you so much.

  4. Thanks for sharing eggless cake recipe. Want to eat such yummy pineapple cake then order a cake from monginis. They provide fresh cakes at affordable cost.

  5. Thank you so much for this delicious recipe. I tried it and the cake turned out delicious!
    I just had one comment – the 20 oz can of crushed pineapple actually gives 1 cup juice and 1 cup drained pineapple. However the recipe uses only 1/2 cup of juice and 1/2 cup drained pineapple. Did I do something different? Your response would be appreciated, thanks!

  6. Manjula Aunty I have tried many of your recipe’s and have never gone wrong. But this time this cake turned out slightly bitter not sure what went wrong.

  7. dear aunty
    the cake looks really lovely .
    i am looking forward to preparing it today .
    all the measurements are in cups and it is slightly confusing.
    for maida 1 cup =128 gms
    for butter 1 cup =113 gms
    for juice 1 cup =125 ml.
    for condensed milk half can is 200ml.
    are my calculations correct?
    it would be better if the measurements were in weights.
    thank you

  8.

  9. I was so looking forward to eating this cake. It turned out bitter 🙁 The only change I made was to use a butter substitute.. Could you please tell me what might have gone wrong? Also i baked it in a 3×8 inch loaf tin and it took more than twice the mentioned amount of time to bake.

    1. Hi Shilpa

      I tried this recipe and it turned out greatt..

      Make sure you aren’t using too much of pineapple as excess pineapple can give bitter taste.

      try it again with same recipe, I am sure it will taste yum..:

  10. hi, i would like to know if i can substitute the pineapple by fresh one ,then how to get the syrup to moistened the cake after cooking.thank you.

    1. I’m thinking just a nice cool whip topping would be good. Maybe add some fresh strawberries on top. Just a suggestion that is quick and simple.

  15. Hello Auntie

    Your website here says 1-1/4 cups of maida but your video says 1 + 1-1/4 cups maid a. I made last cake looking at your video and this one I am following your website. I think my proportions are wrong now. My cake is still in oven and I guess it won’t come out well.

    Please correct the error on your website so that others dont get confused like me.

  16. Hi,
    Tried your recipe today. I am vegan so I replaced butter and milk with vegan alternatives along with little egg re-placer… The cake turned out to be amazingly delicious! Ur tip of adding little pineapple juice in the end over hot cake rocks!!

    Thank you so much…..u r a *star*

    Lots of luv 🙂

    Sift the flour and mix it to the above batter along with baking powder and a pinch of salt. Add the choco chips and spread evenly on the prepared tin. Make sure to grease the tin with butter prior than putting the mixed batter. Preheat oven on 300 f and bake for 25 mins or until skewer inserted is clean..

  23. Hello Manjulaji,

    I was thinking about making this cake tomorrow for about 10-15 people using 9″ cake pans. Could you please post the recipe to accommodate that many people? Also, can I substitute the condensed milk with vanilla pudding and evaporated milk? Will still be soft?
    Thanks in advance!!

  24. Manjula ji,

    Thank you for this wonderful recipe. My child has egg and nut allergies – so I am always looking for eggless recipes. This tastes awesome. I wanted to make this for a Birthday party – I was wondering if I can double this recipe without changing the oven temperature and timing.

  25. Hello aunty,
    Your recipes are awsome.You teach like a mother, each n everything.I tried all of your rice recipes.aunty i couldn’t find baking powder on indian store so plz let me know from where i can get that or only baking soda can do….please guide.

    1. You should be able to get baking powder in regular grocery stores. Most of them usually carry KRAFT’S Calumet Baking powder. Has always worked for me (make sure to check the expiration date).

  32. Dear Madam Manjula,

  33. Hi Manjula!
    I love your recipes, I have tried a few, they always come out good. I feel like I am right there in your kitchen learning how to cook delicious Indian food. You should get your own TV show teaching all those “chefs” how is done. Pay attention Oprah, this is your new cooking star.

  35. Hi Manjula,
    I tried this recipe.
    The cake did not come out perfect, it was not baked well in the middle.
    But the corners and crust were just fine. The taste was good too.

  36. Hello,
    I stumbled upon your website on google search and so far loved some of the recipes that are listed and seen few videos. I have been looking for a way to make an eggless pineapple cake for quite some time and this recipe so far has been the easiest.

    Thank you,

  38. Hello Auntie,

    thank you so much for this delicious recipe. I have made it several times and it turns out absolutely perfect. My family loves this cake and its wonderful to have with tea or even after dinner as dessert.

    I usually cut my cake into squares and serve it with one spoonful of coolwhip cream topped with the crushed pineapple and a sprinkle of crushed pistachios.

  39. hello.
    I loved the recepie but I just wanted to kno can I make the same cake with fresh pineapple?
    Also i wanted to know if can i make the cake in cooker and if yes what will be the procedure?

  40. hi manjulaji,
    I want to try this cake but I don’t have cake tin.Can I use those pyrex glass container for baking?If yes will there be a different temp.I have to bake it on ?
    please let me know

  41. My boyfriend and I love this cake! Instead of sweetened condensed milk I used a commercial soy creamer and added sugar until it approximated the sweetness of the condensed milk. The texture is wonderful and the cardamom level is so nice – there, but not screaming at you! haha For the top I used solid, cold coconut cream from one can of coconut milk with some powdered sugar and 1/2 vanilla bean (scraped) and whipped it just like cream in my stand mixer. I’ll be making this a lot. Thanks for the recipe!!

  42. Hi Aunty,

    Can I substitute milk + sugar for condensed milk? (my son is allergic to dairy products) If so, can you suggest me the equilvalent proportions?

    thanks in advance,

  43. Thanks aunty for the wonderful eggless recipe as I hate the smell of eggs.My cake came out really well but my batter was runny unlike yours which seems a littlte stiff.Also I felt that the cake was a little more moist than required.Where can I have gone wrong?

  44. Hi Manjula Anuty,

    I am amateur baker. Is this the recipe for pineapple cool cake that we get in India? Am just curious.


  45. Hello Manjula Aunty,

    I made the Eggless Pineapple cake for my husband’s birthday, was it a hit! more than a hit!!!! I had also invited our friends and all loved it……
    Thank You for sharing such a wonderful and simple cake recipe!

    I was also curious to know whether pineapple can be subsituted with other fruits?

  46. Hello Manjula Aunty,
