Eggless Pineapple Streusel

Dear Friends


At weekends,It was so boring and was seeing some fruits in fridge and on the table.What do I make something different in which we have not tasted it so far.Most we tasted are blueberry and strawberries. I keep  thinking whether pineapple is suitable for getting streusel crunchy cake on the top.It is part of Danish origin for streusel. I decided to make an egg-less pineapple cake  along with crunchy toppings of streusel and coconut milk.Here is my own recipe on my 1st attempt :) Have a try and make it at home.:)





Here are the ingredients:

For the cake:


  • 2 cups All purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 Tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 Tsp  of Baking soda
  • 1/2 Tsp salt.
  • 1/4 Tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 Tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2  cup coconut milk (1st Extract) or milk
  • 1/2 cup Curd
  • 1 Tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups of freshly chopped pineapples

For Topping:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cooking oats
  • 1 Tablespoon All purpose flour
  • 1/4 Tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 Tsp ground nutmeg
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup finely sweetened coconut
  • 2 Tablespoons cold butter cut in to small cubes


Method:



Preheat the oven to 350 F or 180 C.
  1. Mix all the dry ingredients such as flour,salt,baking powder,baking soda in a bowl. Whisk well and sieve it. Add ground cinnamon and nutmeg and mix well.
  2. In a wide bowl, Add softened butter and sugar to it.Mix well until it is creamy by using hand mixer or stand mixer with paddle attachment.
  3. Add curd to the creamy mixture.mix well.
  4. Add vanilla extract and mix well until it is well incorporated.
  5. Add 1st extract of coconut milk or plain milk and mix well.
  6. Add flour mixture in three additions.
  7. Finally add chopped pineapples into the flour curd mixture. fold it gently.Do not overmix.
  8. Pineapple batter is ready.Meanwhile grease the square or round 9 inch pan with butter and dust it with flour to remove any excess.
  9. Transfer the batter into the greased pan.
  10. Under the topping ingredients,Take a bowl, combine all the ingredients except butter.whisk well. add cubed butters and work it with your fingers  or use pastry blender to make coarse crumbs.
  11. Sprinkle the coarse crumbs evenly on the cake batter gently.Do not press hard.
  12. Bake it  for about 30 to 35 minutes or until it is golden brown in color. Once the tooth pick comes out clean.Allow it to keep on the cooling rack.make sure its cooled down.
  13.  Cut into squares and serve it/ Garnish if with the pineapple toppings or along with icecream.:) It is so crunchy on the top.
