Pineapple Cake from Great Tea International


This luscious pineapple cake is easy to make, and it is a light accompaniment to any tea so it doesn’t interfere with the flavor of the tea. Although using canned pineapple is very easy, you may want to try cubes cut from a fresh pineapple.

  • 8Servings


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup regular milk

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray an 8-inch round or square cake pan with nonstick cooking spray, and coat it lightly with flour. Set aside.

Beat butter with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add sugar, and continue to beat well for 3 to 5 minutes, or until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating mixture well after each addition.

Stir flour, salt, baking powder and milk to egg mixture in mixing bowl, adding each ingredient 1 at a time. Stir pineapple in by hand, taking care not to overbeat. Pour mixture into prepared pan.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven, and allow cake to cool in pan for 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer cake onto a cooling rack. Slice, and serve when cake has cooled completely.
