Pineapple Chunk & Cardamom Cake (Eggless)

The recipe for today's post comes from my drafts. I had made it quite sometimes back and since then it had just been sitting in my drafts. I have made this one quite many times, mainly when I have some left over canned pineapples. If you love pineapples it will surely appeal to you. Adding cardamom adds an Indian flavour to it but if you do not like it, you can leave it out all together and you will have a pineapple chunk cake.

This recipe is adapted from Manjulas Kitchen. I have just tweaked the amount of butter and juice. It worked well and the cake was rich and moist. Instead of butter you can use equal amount of oil plus a little more pineapple juice.These pictures have not been able to capture the moistness and texture. I will update the post with better pictures next time I bake it. As for now, hop off to the recipe!


1 1/4cup AP Flour.
1/4 cup butter,soft at room temperature.
3/4 cup condensed milk.
5 rings of canned pineapple cut into chunks.
3/4 cup of pineapple juice (from the pineapple can).
1 tsp baking powder.
1/2 tsp baking soda.
3 cardamom pod seeds powdered finely.


1.Take a deep bowl or container and put soft butter in it. Add condensed milk to it and whip it nicely with a wooden spoon or a hand mixer till it is light and well incorporated.

2. In a separate bowl add AP flour, baking powder, baking soda and powdered cardamom and shift.

3. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture little by little stirring all the time.Add the pineapple juice little by little and whisk for another 5 minutes till it is mixed properly. Add a little more if needed. Add the pineapple chunks and fold it in the mixture.

4.Keep a cake tin greased with butter and dusted with flour ready before starting to make the cake batter. Pour the cake batter into it. Insert the cake pan into an oven preheated at 180 degree C. Bake the cake at 170 degree C for 40mins.

5. Using a skewer or knife check if the cake is done. Prick the skewer into the cake, if it comes out clear then the cake is ready.

6. Take the container out of the oven and let it cool for 10 mins. Take the cake out on a plate by turning the container upside down.

This pineapple cake is very moist and it tastes best when served cold.

Thank you for stopping by! Cheers!
