200 g of butter
200 g of flour
250 g of sugar
5 eggs
Liquid bitter almond
Liquid vanilla aroma
1 ton of sliced pineapple
1 sachet of baking powder


  • Melt the butter and add the sugar
  • Add the eggs, one by one, taking the care to whisk the mix well after adding each of the eggs
  • Once the mix is well foamy, progressively add the sifted flour
  • Add some of the pineapple juice in the tin, 1 teaspoon of bitter almond and one teaspoon of vanilla aroma
  • In a baking tray, warm up some water and the sugar cane to make the caramel
  • Once it is dissolved and the caramel well formed, put the pineapple slices at the bottom and the sides of the tray laterally
  • Pour the cake mix in the baking tray making sure that the mix does not go under the pineapples
  • Put in the oven for 35 minutes
  • To finish: if after 35 minutes, the cake does not seem completely cooked, leave it to continue to bake, checking regularly the state of the mix by putting a dry knife through/in the cake. It is ready when the knife comes out dry.
