In my pre-blogging days, I always thought that delicious, fluffy cakes need to be loaded with butter and eggs. Then a whole realm opened up with eggless baking and now fat free baking. I am sure there is a lot more to explore. This Pineapple cake is a very moist cake, ideal for breakfast or a snack or as an accompaniment to tea/coffee. The theme of 'Butterless Bakes for diet' in this edition of Blogging Marathon is definitely pushing me to experiment various types of cakes and this was by far the best in that category.

I happen to like the chunks of pineapple in bakes and this cake is no exception. Coffee or no coffee, this cake is a sheer joy to dig into!! The cinnamon-sugar topping is just so irresistible!! While I enjoy this piece of cake please check out the recipe for Day 4 of BM#7.

Cinnamon 1 Tbsp (or as required)
Granulated Sugar 2 Tbsp (or as required)

Method Of Preparation - 

Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease the three ramekins (I used 1 cup capacity) by spraying oil.

In a separate bowl, mix in the wet ingredients. 

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently mix until combined.

Don't over mix.  Transfer the batter into the three ramekins and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top.

Bake in the middle rack for about 25-30 min or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Allow to cool for 10-15 min and transfer onto a cooling rack. 

Enjoy with a cup of coffee if you please!!

  4. I am truly bookmarking this in my memory folder since I am not going to forget it since it is in your blog. :) I must say I have been looking for these kind of goodies during this BM. When people say no butter and load the recipe with oil or some other alternative, I see no point in calling it guiltfree.
    I was about to ask you that can I use quick oats and see that I can since oats are powdered. :)
