how to make eggless pineapple cream cake

preparing the eggless vanilla cake:

  1. first sift the all purposed flour/maida with the baking powder and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl or pan.
  2. just keep everything ready as you have to be quick enough to mix the batter.
  3. preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  4. grease a 6 or 7 inches pan with butter or oil. you can also line the pan with butter paper and then grease the butter paper with oil or butter.
  5. now take some butter and melt it in a small pan or microwave.
  6. you need to get about ½ cup of melted butter. just melt the butter. no need to heat it.
  7. when the butter is still warm or a bit hot, add the sugar to the melted butter.
  8. stir and mix well. keep aside.
  9. now in a measuring cup or in a small bowl, whisk the 3 tbsp yogurt + 1 tbsp water till smooth.
  10. add 1 tbsp vinegar. then add the baking soda and stir.
  11. pour the butter+sugar mixture, ½ cup water and the frothing yogurt+vinegar+baking soda into the sieved flour.
  12. add vanilla extract or pineapple essence.
  13. be quick enough to fold and make a lump free batter. don’t over do the folding.
  14. pour the batter in the greased baking pan.
  15. shake and tap the sides of the pan so that air bubbles are released.
  16. place the pan in the preheated oven in the center rack.
  17. keep the heating in both the bottom and top elements of the oven on.
  18. bake at 180 degrees C for 30-35 minutes or more till a tooth pick inserted in the cake comes out clean.
  19. if the vanilla cake browns too quickly on the top, then cover the top with an aluminium foil or butter paper.
  20. once done let the vanilla cake stand at room temperature for 7-8 minutes.
  21. then with the help of oven mitts, gently remove the vanilla cake on a wired tray or rack.
  22. once the vanilla cake cools, you can serve the eggless vanilla cake as it is or use the vanilla cake to make pastries or gateau.
  23. let the cake cool completely before you prepare the icing.

for the pineapple cream frosting & assembling.

  1. finely chop 2 to 3 pineapple slices and keep aside.
  2. slice the cake with a serrated knife from the center carefully into two equal halves.
  3. brush the base slice of the cake with some pineapple juice.
  4. in a stand mixer fitted with the wired whip blade, whip the cream and icing sugar along with vanilla extract or pineapple essence, at high speed till you get stiff peaks in the cream.
  5. taste the cream and add more icing sugar if required.
  6. you can also use a hand held electric beater to whip the cream.
  7. the cream should have stiff peaks – meaning on turning the bowl the cream should not fall down.
  8. mix the finely chopped pineapple with 1/4 or 1/3 of the cream
  9. spread the pineapple cream frosting on the base slice evenly..
  10. keep the other cake half over.
  11. now spread the remaining whipped cream all over the cake on the top as well as the sides, with a palette knife or spatula evenly.
  12. decorate the cake with a few more pineapple slices.
  13. keep the cake in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours so that the cream icing sets.
  14. remove the cake and decorate the cake with the fresh strawberry slices.
  15. serve the eggless pineapple cream cake immediately.
  16. or you can keep it covered in the fridge and then serve later.
  17. its advisable to finish this pineapple cream cake in a day or two.

  1. Hi dassanna,

    I love your recipes. I would like to send you a pic of my pineapple cake which i have made following your recipe.. Please share your phone number or email I’d. Many thanks – Ashwini Kulkarni

  2. Hi,

    Can we use pineapple essence instead of vanilla essence in the basic sponge cake for making a pineapple cake?

    • Chitvan, yes you can use. but just add 1/2 teaspoon.

  3. shud I put the cream tin in freezer before use u said even u used amul whipping cream

    • no need to keep in freezer. keep in the fridge. yes i have used both amul fresh cream as well as amul whipping cream.

  4. hi I have used amul whipping cream I have no hand blender so I used mixi instead it has come slurry only what shud I do

    • madhavi, the whey has been released from the cream. you can’t use this cream now. beat the cream more in the mixie and let butter release from it. use that butter for everyday cooking.

  5. Thanks a lot for your reply.

    • welcom always beena 🙂

  6. Thank you so much for the recipe. Can butter be substituted with ghee in baking cakes? Which butter is best for baking?

    • welcome beena yes butter could be substituted for ghee and you could use any good brand of butter like amul here. hope this help’s you 🙂

  7. Hi dassana, I too bake a lot of cakes n cookies n have the same background as yours in Home Science. I love going through your site which has pleasing pics n is easy to understand.This is in reply to some queries on your site that I came across about using Amul cream for the icing of cakes. It will be better if you use whipped cream which comes in one litre packs n has pre added sugar. Amul cream falls flat after some time of whipping n never attains the stiff peak stage as it is a cooking cream. Well……keep up the good work. Thanks

    • thanks arpita. good to know we share the same passion. where i live i get amul cream only. i don’t get whipping cream. so far for all the frostings, mousses and panna cotta i use amul cream. since i use a stand mixer, i guess due to excellent speed, amul cream does get soft as well as stiff peaks when icing sugar is added. in this recipe since i used powdered sugar, i had an issue. hence in the post i mentioned icing sugar. but whenever i use icing sugar amul cream gets nice soft peaks and do not fall flat.

  8. Hello Dassana,
    Kindly post on how to choose an oven elaborating the cooking optons? which model do u have ? Will a normal microwave convection oven suffice to do the recipies on ur site?

    • i am thinking of writing such a post, but just not getting time. which oven you choose, depends on what are your preferences. if you just want to do baking, then OTG is good. if you plan to warm or cook in microwave and also do baking, then microwave oven with convection mode is an option. however, personally i prefer to bake in an OTG as the result is an even baking.

      • O bhai you can bake cake on the wooden stove too, just put lots wood in the stove and fire them, remember this that flame should be more than two feet height and then put pot full with cake INGREDIENTS on it, leave it one hours for burn black pineapple cake, now your cake is ready.

        • thankyou amit for sharing this information 🙂

  9. Hi …really nice website..the way u have written everything in details with pics. I tried making cake using ur recipe. Can u tell me why my upper crust of cake becomes so hard after taking out from oven. I preheat and check with knife. Do i overcook ?? Can u explain me the reason. Thanks

    • thats due to over baking or the oven is too much hot. or the cake pan is kept close to the top heating rods in the oven.

  10. Hi…I made my first cake from the help.of your website….m really thankful to you….you have provided instructions with pictures which makes the process of understanding easy…really appreciate …Thank you
