Fat Free Pineapple Sponge Cake

Fat Free Pineapple Sponge Cake

By 14/06/2013

The  bikini season is nearly here and I am always baking and cooking. I don't know how on earth I will fit in my summer clothes. After enduring a long and cold winter cooking and eating well  has been a great comfort and of course a major source of pleasure.

Today my daughter told me: "Mummy I love you because you cook nice things for me". That will make it even harder to stay away from the kitchen!

This means that the easiest way is to cook lighter things, like this fat free cake I made today with no butter or oil added. The pineapple on top will make it moist and refreshing. This is a simple cake and it does not take too long to make.

    What a beautiful sponge cake, Alida! I love the use of pineapple (I think pineapple is mis-spelled in the title of your post). Thanks so much for sharing this delicious dessert. FYI, the amaretti cookies would be considered a “finished” ingredient by the Made with Love Monday guidelines and so these should really include a link to a recipe for making the cookies. Store-bought cookies are generally prohibited by the series…

      Thank you Mark! I am planning to make amaretti biscuits soon so I will be able to link it with the recipe if its OK with you.

    It doesn’t look like a fat free… pineapple must have lent the moisture to the cake…your sponge cake looks very beautiful with flowered shaped pineapple topping.

    I’ve been wondering how I’m going to squeeze into my summer clothes too, Alida. I guess Fat Free is the way to go. Who could resist such deliciousness as this? Skinny jeans here I come!

    Thank you so much for sharing…
