Easy pineapple cake

A cake for when you want cake now – well in 45 minutes anyway.

This recipe is adapted from Easy Pineapple Cake at Allrecipes.com. I added cinnamon because I like spiced cakes. And I reckon it would also work with other tinned fruit such as apples or plums – I’ll let you know when I try them out.

Initially I wasn’t sure about the cake as it has no oil, no milk and no butter. But it actually turned out really well. It’s a sticky moist cake that’s not too sweet – so you can have more than one piece…

Easy pineapple cake


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1  can crushed pineapple with juice


  1. Sift flour and baking soda into a bowl. Mix in sugar and cinnamon.  Make a well in the centre.
  2. Mix wet ingredients together, to break up the eggs. Pour into dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.
  3. Pour into a greased and floured ring tin.
  4. Bake at 180C for 45  minutes until cooked.

The original recipe says to put cream cheese icing on it, but it’s pretty nice on its own with a cup of tea. I’ll just stop typing and get back to my crochet shall I?
