Moist Vanilla & Pineapple Cake


  • 2½ cups plain flour
  • 1 tbs baking powder
  • 3-4 eggs (I used 4 small ones)
  • ½ cup of milk
  • 1 cup golden caster sugar
  • 2 tbs vanilla sugar
  • 125g / ½ bar of unsalted butter
  • 400g tin of pineapple (drained and cut into chunks)
  • + 2 tsp of butter to grease the tins


  • mixing bowl
  • small non-stick saucepan
  • two 11×22 cm (4.5 x 8.5 in) non-stick loaf tins
  • wooden skewer


  1. Melt butter and leave it aside to cool down.
  2. In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, vanilla sugar, and caster sugar.
  3. Gradually add melted butter, milk and eggs.
  4. At the end fold in also pineapple pieces.
  5. Pour mixture into buttered tins and bake in the the oven preheated to 160°C (320°F) for about 45-50 minutes.
  6. Ready cake should have cracks on the top, be moist but not sticky inside, use skewer to check.
  7. Remove cakes from the tin and let them cool down completely before sharing.

Make about 16-20 slices.


Store in the fridge wrapped in aluminium foil or in air tight container.
400g tin of tropical fruit salad would work here very well too, I will try it next time.
