Tooti fruity pineapple cake

My 3 year old loves cakes, whenever we pass through a bakery he says amma we'll buy cake.. So one fine afternoon when we were returning home from his school he again said the same words so i told him amma will make it at home and he instantly says i want tooti fruity cake (he had eaten it once in the same bakery that we crossed) and i answered ok..

Once back home i put him to sleep and started with baking the cake. I used pineapple essence rather than the usual vanilla essence this time.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 25-30 minutes (depending on the oven)
Serves: 9-10 pieces


1. Maida/all purpose flour 1.5cups
2. Powdered sugar 2 cups
3. Eggs 3nos
4. Baking soda 1.5tbsp
5. Butter (melted) 3/4cup
6. Tooti fruity a little
7. Pineapple essence 1tsp


1. Preheat oven at 200 degrees.
2. Sieve maida and baking powder and keep aside.
3. Beat eggs (both white and yolk), add the pineapple essence and beat well till fluffy.
4. Now fold in butter and sugar and beat really well.
5. Slowly add the maida and tooti fruity and mix really well. More you beat, more fluffy the cake.
6. Grease the baking tray, pour the mixture and bake at 200 degrees for about 25-30 minutes, depending on the oven you use (you can check in between).
7. Once baked, remove from the oven, let it cool and turn around and cut as desired.
