A new post after a while 😊 a special cake I made for my son's birthday! its a Pineapple Chiffon Cake with vanilla frosting!

Well,I am not a baker but I try! πŸ˜‰ you know saying that helps a lot! Specially when you bake very less quantity that too occasionally. But I love to bake bread/pizza on a regular basis πŸ˜€
At least what I bake is liked at my home,hopefully you all will like my recipes!
I wanted to make a cake with frosting for a long time. I do make cheesecake's as that is what my family loves!
I had shared recipe of Mango Cheesecake. You can check that recipe too.
My son has finally turned "2"!
I have literally counted each day till today! and now the clock is again reset to count further 😏
Practically he is not a food lover so does my daughter! But I thought of making a sky blue frosting with a soft cake for his birthday. Now what flavor was another question! So finally I thought lets make a pineapple one😁

I am sharing here a recipe of a simple and soft Pineapple chiffon cake! Well I had no idea what chiffon cake meant! But then I went to my daughters school function and there some parent had got a nice chiffon cake.So I did a research on how the chiffon cakes are made and came up with a simple yet yumm cake!
I did a basic vanilla frosting as I did not have much time on hand to make some fancy frosting.May be my next bake will have a fancy frosting!
Pardon my pictures this time,as there was so much chaos everywhere and tiny fingers were licking the frosting on one side while I was clicking so I just packed πŸ™Œ

Ok just now I realised I have another cake recipe that too pineapple one! it's Britannia Copycat Pineapple Cake !
Do give this a try and share your feedback!

  • In a separate bowl,add the egg yolks and pineapple essence.
  • Beat once so that its mixed well.
  • Mix together pineapple juice and milk. It might appear slightly curdled but do not worry.

  • Beat the mix well till the flour is added well.
  • Scrape the edges of the bowl in between.
  • Now add the egg white part to this batter.
  • Do not beat now,just mix lightly. The batter will be frothy.
  • Do not deflate it. Do not beat now.
  • Pour this batter equally in both the baking pans.
  • Tent the pan with aluminum foil.
  • Bake for the first 20 minutes with the tent.
  • Later remove the aluminum foil and bake further for another 20 minutes or till done.
  • Let the cakes cool completely before inverting them.
  • Enjoy the cake with a smile :)


  • If you want more sugar then adjust accordingly.
  • I have simply whipped some heavy whipping cream with vanilla and sugar to get the frosting.
  • Added blue frosting color to it.
