Ingredients for 1 cake:
For the base:
  • 1 cup Butter
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 can Sliced Pineapples
  • 6 Maraschino Cherries (optional)
For the cake:
  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 6 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 10 tbsps Pineapple Juice (from the can)
  • Pinch of Salt


Preheat oven to 350 deg F. Grease the bottom of a bundt cake pan. You can use butter by just rubbing a stick around the bottom or a non-stick baking spray.

Make the base:

Melt 1 cup of butter and place in bottom of pan. Then spreadout 1 cup of granulated sugar on top.

Place the pineapple slices on top of the butter mixture. Then add the maraschino cherries in the pineapple holes. Set aside.

Make the cake batter. The following assumes you have an electric mixer like KitchenAid:

Separate eggs yolks from the whites. Then beat egg whites until fluffy soft peaks are forming. Remove egg whites and set aside in another bowl.

In the same mixing bowl, add the egg yolks and sugar and mix for 3-4 minutes or until pale and fluffy. Add in the baking powder, salt and half of the flour.

Mix until incorporated and then add remaining flour and mix again. Then add half of the egg whites and mix gently with a spatula.

Then fold in remaining egg whites. Pour into baking pan and bake for about an hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Let the cake cool off for 10 minutes or so and run a knife around the edges. Invert cake onto a platter and serve.
