Pineapple Loaf Cake

Did I mention that I also make cakes?

This is one I make a lot - it originally came from Bella Magazine & the torn out page is getting quite tatty

It's a lovely cake & very moist


11oz self raising flour
5oz butter (cubed)
5oz caster sugar
6oz sultanas
1 small tin of pineapple rings - keep the juice
2 medium eggs (beaten)


  • Preheat oven to 180C/Gas mark 4 
  • Grease and line a 2lb loaf tin
  • Sift flour into a bowl, add the butter and rub in until the mix resembles fine breadcrumbs
  • Stir in the sugar
  • Pat pineapple dry and cut into small pieces
  • Toss with the sultanas and add to the flourand mix well
  • Add eggs and pineapple juice and mix really well
  • Spoon into prepared tin and put in oven
  • Bake for 1hr 15 minutes (approx) 
  • Check after 45 minutes and put foil over the top if it is getting too brown
  • Leave to cool in tin for 10 minutes once it is cooked
  • Then cool on a wire rack
  • Eat
  • Enjoy!
