Want to make an easy, fruity cake full of childhood memories? Don’t have anything fresh in the cupboards? Check out this cake!
While it is *not* healthy, it is delicious and vegan friendly! I have embellished the recipe in the original cookbook.
2 Tb margarine
3/4 C brown sugar
2 1/2 C drained and chopped canned pineapple (save the juice!)
1 1/2 C white flour
2 Ts baking powder
1/2 Ts salt
Just under 1/2 C white sugar
1 egg replacer (or egg)
1/2 C pineapple juice
1/2 C margarine
Splash of vanilla extract
Chopped nuts of your choice- pecans, walnuts or even sunflower seeds!
Melt the 2 Tb of margarine and add 3/4 C brown sugar. Mix well and put this in the bottom of a cake pan. Add chopped nuts and then chopped pineapples on top. Set aside.
Sift the flower, baking powder, salt and white sugar together. In separate bowl, mix ‘egg’, water, 1/2 C margarine and vanilla extract. Combine with the flour mixture until it is smooth. Spread over pineapple. Bake at 400F/190C until brown and crusty, about 35 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes and turn out of the pan, fruit side up.
