Ingredients to make for
The recipe I use originally came from a Vegetarian restaurant that closed down long ago. I follow the basic recipe, except for a few minor additions, and, for many years, I was using raw unrefined sugar, and this creates a denser moister cake. In doing that, it was necessary to line the cake tin, and cook the cake for longer. I found the edges would sometimes over-brown and cook faster than the centre, so I now use refined white sugar (the white death!), however, the results for this recipe are much better. Note that the pineapple must be well drained, otherwise it will be a very moist cake. You have been warned!
