Pineapple Sponge Cake – Easy Recipe

Pineapple Sponge Cake – Easy Recipe

By 05/06/2014

It feels good to treat yourself with a good piece of homemade cake from time to time... if you find the time to bake it!

That's why quick and easy recipes always come in handy. And this is one of them. Whip the eggs, add all the ingredients, stir, pop your favourite fruit on top and let you oven do the job.

This is also great for children as it is simple, light and healthy too. I have used olive oil instead of butter for a healthier option and the juice and zest of a lemon will give the cake a fresh and aromatic flavour.

  • Prep Time : 20 minutes
  • Cook Time : 35 minutes



Whip the eggs with the sugar. Add the flour, oil and lemon zest and juice

Add enough milk to make a smooth and creamy mixture

Pour the mixture in a greased baking tray and lay the pineapple on it. Sprinkle with brown sugar.

Cook at 180C or 350F for 35 minutes until golden. I have sprinkled the cake with freezed dried raspberries but this is optional.

    Dear Alida, I think this recipe is wonderful. The finished cake looks so pretty and must be yummy for sure. I love the way you placed the pineapple on the top of the cake. Easy and a great summer time last minute cake. Nice touch with the freeze dried raspberries sprinkled on top. Thanks for sharing this one, very creative once again, love it. Blessings, Dottie 🙂

    It’s so true – cake always seems like a luxury due to the amount of time it can take to whip one together. But you’ve got a winner here – I love the slices of pineapple on time! Easy and so tempting…
