Who doesn’t love a fruity cake. This pineapple bundt cake recipe is really simple you could also add in what ever nuts and dried fruit you like. I’d never made a bundt cake before and I saw big juicy pineapple sitting in our fruit bowl and suddenly had a need to try a make a pineapple cake.
My dad thinks it’s the best I’ve made so I would definitely recommend trying it out. I used real pineapple but canned would also work. You could also make this cake in a normal cake tin, it would just need less time to cook. If you’re wanting another cake recipe I made a carrot cake for my dads birthday a few months ago which you can find here.
Pineapple has been my favourite fruit ever since I was a kid. I lived in Fiji when I was younger and it was my go to fruit every morning. Unfortunately I’m stuck in Auckland for a rainy winter and it’s making me think I need to move somewhere tropical next year. I use coconut sugar in a lot of my baking as I love the flavour, It tastes similar to brown sugar with a hint of caramel. Coconut sugar retains it nutrients compared to refined sugars and even contains a vitamin C, magnesium and zinc.
