Hello everyone, I hope you enjoyed my latest recipe: Eggless Pineapple Cake. As I have said before I am not very big on baking, but one good thing about doing this website is that I am learning more as I try to show you new recipes. Alex (my husband) is a big help because he will not video the recipe until he is happy with it. So now you know, you all are trying the food he approves.
Before I started on the cake, I used Google to find a few recipes that looked good, but I knew I would have to modify them. First I followed this recipe from allrecipes.com which I liked the most but I thought it was too dry so I decided to add pineapple. I pureed the pineapple and added it to my next cake. My son was visiting so he tried the cake and said it was too bland and tasteless. In my third attempt, I added crushed pineapple and pineapple juice as you see and cardamom powder. It was better then before but still too dry. I decided to spread a few spoons of pineapple juice over the cake but by that time the cake was cold. It worked but wasn’t good enough. I felt I should have put the juice while cake was still warm so that’s what I did on my fourth attempt and yes — THIS cake got the Alex approval. Now he was ready to video.
You must be wondering what I did with all this cake. First one I trashed. I sliced the second and third cake into small cubes. Then I softened some vanilla ice cream and mixed the cake and ice cream together. It tasted great and I took that for a potluck lunch. Everybody enjoyed it.
Yesterday, Alex did the video for cabbage Kofta which is now on the website. This one is my granddaughter and grandson’s favorite for now, although their favorites keep changing.
