Happy Birthday to the most important people in my life - My husband and my sister!!

Coincidence? Divine plan? No idea, but the two most important people in my life share their birthday with each other. It was last week and they demanded this Pineapple Cake. Normally, I'd bake a chocolate since that's everyone's favorite, but a birthday girl/boy's wish has to be fulfilled.

So Pineapple Cake it was!!

The last time I made this cake was four years ago on my birthday and I almost swore I'd never make it again. I was a novice at frosting cakes back then and I messed it up real bad. First I tried to make the whipped cream frosting with low fat cream by adding butter to increase its fat content. I've heard it works, but in my case I ended up with a gloopy buttery mess. Then I found that there are lots of local dairies around that sell fresh full fat cream and I went in search of that. We had to check out several stores to find the freshest of the fresh lot. And to my back luck, I over whipped it and ended up with lots of vanilla flavored sweet butter. So you understand my trauma when the pair asked for Pineapple while I was trying to steer them towards anything that needed a ganache or a buttercream.

So this time I bought back up packets of cream and guess what? All my back ups are safe in the fridge. I've finally learnt when to stop whipping the cream. My suggestion would be to use cream with at least 40% fat content and not fret about making this cake low calorie. Lets get real, this cake is a treat, and not a low cal diet eat, so close your eyes for once at the calorie count and just enjoy a slice of the delicious Pineapple Cake.

The first time I made this cake, was also the first time I ever bought a pineapple. It is much simpler to use canned pineapple here, but I'm all about using fresh fruit when I can. So I learnt how to peel and slice a pineapple. While I'd have loved to use the fresh pineapple straight away, it ends up getting bitter after a while, hence, stewing it in sugar syrup. You will need to stew the pineapple a few days in advance, at least one day. I made the pineapple in syrup 4 days in advance and it turned out beautifully sweet and soft. The leftover syrup can be used in smoothies or juices to add a subtle pineapple flavor.

Recipe Type:  Dessert
Cuisine:          International
Prep Time:     1 Hour
Cook time:     40 Minutes
Yield:              One 6" cake

Ingredients:


For the Cake:


1.5 cups All Purpose Flour (Maida)
300 gms Condensed Milk
1 cup Milk
0.5 cups Oil
2-3 Tbsp Powdered Sugar
1.5 Tbsp Cornstarch (Cornflour)
1 tsp Baking powder
0.5 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
Pinch of salt

For the Whipped Cream Frosting:


200 ml Fresh medium fat cream(40% milk fat)(Chilled)
4-5 Tbsp Powdered Sugar
1 tsp Cornstarch
0.25 tsp Vanilla Essence

Other ingredients:


2-3 slices of canned Pineapple or 2-3 fresh Pineapple slices
1 cup Water (not required if using canned pineapple)
0.75 cups Sugar(not required if using canned pineapple)


Method:


To prepare the Pineapple:


Skip these steps if you are using canned pineapple.
Add the sugar to the water and heat until it dissolves.
Lower the heat and add the fresh pineapple slices.
Simmer for 5 minutes.
Pour the pineapple and the syrup into a glass jar.
Allow it to cool before closing the jar and refrigerating.
Preferably, do this at least 1 day in advance to assembling the cake. I made these 4 days in advance.

To make the Cake:


Sift together maida, baking powder, baking soda and cornstarch at least twice to ensure even mixing
In a large mixing bowl, take the condensed milk, vanilla essence and oil. Whisk until combined.
Add the powdered sugar and salt, mix until combined.
Add the flour by the spoonfuls and whisk until combined. When it gets harder to whisk, add in a little milk. Continue until all the flour and milk has been combined. Do not over mix, the cake will end up hard.
Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius.
Grease two 6" round pans and line the bottom of the pan with butter paper or dust the pan with flour.
Divide the batter equally between the two pans.
Bake for 30-40 mins until done.
Cool on a wire rack until completely cool before frosting.
The cake can be made a day in advance and frosted later.

To make the Whipped Cream Frosting:


Before making the whipped cream, place the whisk and a steel bowl (in which you will be whisking) in the fridge for 30 mins.
Alternatively, place the steel bowl in an ice bath while whisking.
Pour the cream to the cold bowl and whisk until you have soft peaks.
Now add in the cornstarch, sugar and vanilla and continue to whisk until you get stiff peaks. Be careful not to over whip the cream, else it will turn to butter.

Assembling the cake:


Allow the vanilla sponge cake to cool completely.
Level the cake as required.
Spoon the pineapple syrup on both the halves.
Spread a part of the whipped cream on the lower half of the cake.
Cut the pineapple into small pieces and spread on the whipped cream.
Place the upper half on the cake on top.
Spread the whipped cream all over the cake.
Decorate with the remaining pineapple slice.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
