  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 0.25 cup wholemeal flour
  • 0.5 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 0.5 tsp baking soda
  • 0.25 tsp salt
  • 1.5 tsp or more ground coriander
  • 0.25 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 cup finely chopped canned pineapple
  • 0.25 cup vegetable oil I used olive oil
  • 2 eggs at room temperature


  • 60 g powdered sugar
  • 200 g cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp or less pineapple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


Instructions: Coriander and pineapple cake

  • In a bowl mix the flours, sugar, spices, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
  • Add oil, eggs and previously drained and finely chopped pineapple. Remember to set aside a few tablespoon of syrup for the frosting. Mix together briefly.
  • Line a 20 cm baking tray with baking paper, then transfer the batter and bake it in preheated oven at 180° C for about 50 minutes. After this time, check if the cake is ready with a toothpick by sticking it in the center of the cake. If the toothpick is clean then the cake is ready otherwise it needs a few more minutes of baking. Before stuffing the cake let it cool down completely.

The frosting

  • Beat the cream cheese with icing sugar, two tablespoons of pineapple syrup and vanilla extract until it becomes smooth and fluffy (3 – 4 minutes).
  • Divide the cake into 2 parts. Spread the first part with half of the frosting, cover with the second piece of cake.
  • Finally cover the top piece with the remaining frosting. Then decorate with a few slices of pineapple and a spinkle of coriander powder.
