Pineapple and Ginger Cake

Pineapple and Ginger Cake


  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.

For the syrup:

  • Combine the 210 g of pineapple juice from the can, sugar and fresh ginger in a saucepan. Simmer for about 7-8 minutes, until the syrup thickens a little.
  • Set aside to cool.
  • Grease a 22 cm round cake pan and line with parchment paper. Press down on the parchment to make sure adheres to the cake pan nicely.
  • Arrange the pineapple slices on the bottom of the cake pan. Pour half of the syrup over them and set the rest aside to use at the end over cake.

For the cake:

  • Beat the butter and sugar in a mixer using the whisk attachment. Beat for 8-10 minutes until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, making sure to wait for each egg to be completely incorporated into the mixture before adding the next.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and mix by hand with a spatula, until completely combined.
  • Pour the mixture over the pineapple pieces in the cake pan. Smooth the top with a spoon.
  • Bake for 1 hour and then cover with aluminum foil and bake for another 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Carefully turn cake pan over to remove cake.
  • Serve with the remaining syrup and vanilla ice cream.
