Pineapple Cake Topped With Whipped Cream

Some weeks ago, I happen to taste this awesome cake at a family gathering. When asked for the recipe, they graciously shared the link to the real simple lemon bundt cake recipe. I had booked marked the recipe and wanted an occasion to bake the cake. Yesterday, we celebrated my friends daughter's birthday at their house. It was a surprise birthday party and I offered to bring the cake. I substituted pineapple in place of lemon and the cake turned out really delicious. It is rich, but this is one quality cake that I wanted to document for myself and for friends who asked me for the recipe. The original recipe is a bundt cake, but I made it into 9 inch cakes. Try this recipe if you are in need of a good cake recipe.


Electric Mixer
Spring Pan 9 inches 2
Measuring Cups and spoons
Parchment Paper


Unsalted butter (2 sticks), at room temperature, plus more for the pan - 1 cup 
All-purpose flour, spooned and leveled, plus more for the pan - 2 1/2 cups
Kosher salt - 1 tsp
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
Granulated sugar - 3 cups
Crushed Pineapple - 1 can
Finely grated lemon zest - 2 Tbsp
Pineapple juice - 4 tbsp ( reserved from the crushed pineapple can)
Large eggs, at room temperature - 6
Plain full-fat Greek yogurt - 1 cup
Confectioners’ sugar - 4 tbsp
Heavy Whipping Cream - 2 cups
Cookie Cutter (optional)
Sprinkles (optional)


1. Heat oven to 325° F. Butter and flour the spring pans and line the bottom with parchment paper. Place a bowl and whisk in the freezer to get them chilled for whipped cream. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.

2. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter, granulated sugar, and lemon zest on medium-high until light and fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Beat in 4 tablespoons of the pineapple juice, then the eggs, one at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.

3. Reduce mixer speed to low. Add half the flour mixture, then the yogurt, and then the remaining flour mixture. Mix just until combined (do not over mix).

4. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool the cake in the pan for 30 minutes, then run a spatula around the cake and carefully unclasp the spring pan.Transfer onto a wire rack to cool completely.

5. Using the chilled bowl, add the whipped cream and whisk until the cream starts to thicken, then add the confectioner's sugar and whisk to a stiff peak. 

6. Spread the crushed pineapple in the top of  one 9 inch cake. Add the whipped cream on top and spread lightly. At this point you can place the second lawyer and do the same. I served only one 9 inch cake as this is a very rich cake. 

7. Place the tulip cookie cutter on top of the cake. Inside of the flower sprinkle some colored sugar sprinkles. Remove the cookie cutter and the cake is done.

    1. Hi Sowmya,

      Thank you for the nice comments. Whipped cream is a big problem if you do not use unflavored gelatin with it. Also the fat content is another important factor for whipped cream. The higher the fat content it helps the cream to stabilize a little. China grass or Agar Agar helps too. The other alternative is cream cheese. Below are some links in my blog where I have used whipped cream in different ways. Please do check it out as it might help clarify some doubts.

      Regarding an eggless cake, I will send you one recipe that might be helpful. I has added you to google plus, when u accept I will send you the recipe. Its easier. I hope I have answered you ?'s.
