Directions

Initial Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Grease a 10 cup bundt pan and set aside.
  3. Be ready with 4 medium sized bowls and one large mixing bowl.

Pineapple-Brown Sugar Mix Preparation:

  1. In a bowl, add in the ingredients mentioned under 'For Pineapple-Brown Sugar Layer' and mix well.
  2. Add this mixture in the bottom of the bundt pan and spread it evenly. Set aside.

Cake Preparation:

  1. In a bowl, mix together the ingredients mentioned under 'For Pineapple-Vanila mixture' and set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Then add in ¼ cup sugar, and beat until well combined. Set aside.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl add in the butter, ¾ cup sugar and beat until fluffy on medium speed.

Notes:

  • I used fresh pineapple. You can use the canned pineapples too.
  • For the drained crushed pineapple,
    • If you are using fresh pineapple, remove the skin and eyes of pineapple. Then cut it into small pieces and crush it.
    • Place a sieve over a bowl, add in the finely crushed pineapple on the sieve.
    • Gently press it with the back of a spoon to drain off maximum juice.
    • Reserve ½ cup of juice for the recipe and you can have the leftover as such or with a pinch of sugar ;)
  • If you don't have cake flour,
    • Take 2 ½ cups of all-purpose flour, then remove 5 tablespoons of flour from it and substitute with 5 tablespoon of cornflour.
    • Sift and continue with the recipe.
