Its the beginning of winter and fresh winter fruits and veggies are already here…..I love this season especially here in Mumbai where the weather turns so pleasant. Its a huge respite from the hot muggy days!!! Just yesterday I got some yummy, fresh and juicy pineapples. Oh, yes and since Christmas is also nearing I decided to indulge in some “Cake Therapy”….. I decided to add some tropical and Caribbean flavors to my cake…and my little twist by adding Malibu!!! And the results were amazing. The pineapple added the juiciness which was balanced by the tangy punch of orange. The Malibu gives just the subtle hint of coconut….



  1. Sieve the flour and the baking powder. Beat the eggs till fluffy.
  2. Cream the sugar and the oil. Add the eggs and beat, now add the orange juice and half of the Malibu and beat. Slowly add the flour a little at a time and fold in the mixture (do not beat) till all the flour is incorporated. Now add the diced pineappl
  3. Dust the cake tin and pour in the cake batter. Bake at 180 degrees for 35 to 40 mins.
  4. The cake will be moist because of the pineapple. Cool and sprinkle the remaining Malibu over it. You can decorate it with fresh cream or Pineapple and orange wedges.

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
