Pineapple Pastry




Pineapple Pastry

Pineapple pastry/Gateaux is a delicious treat and goes out for all those who have a sweet tooth. It has a soft and melt in mouth texture and is very common in Indian bakeries.  It was everyone's favorite back home. It is basic sponge cake with fruit and whipped cream frosting. Made this for Father's day and my family enjoyed it. Try this,you will surely love it.

Ingredients

For the cake
Self raising flour-1 cup
Sugar- 1/2 cup
Salt- a pinch
Butter- 3 tbs
Egg-6
Vanilla essence- 1 1/2 tsp

For the filling and syrup
Chopped pineapples- 1 1/2 cup
Sugar- 2 tsp

For the cream
Heavy whipping cream- 2 cup
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp
Powdered sugar- 3 tbs

Chopped pineapple and cherries for garnish




Chop pineapples into small cubes and add sugar and set aside for some time. Strain out the liquid that comes  from pineapple.
Keep the pineapple aside( preferably in fridge) and simmer the liquid in a sauce pan in low flame for two minutes and allow it to cool.
Bring butter and eggs to room temperature. Separate the egg whites and the egg yolks.
Shift flour three to four times to make it light and airy.
With a hand mixture beat egg yolks and sugar till it becomes a creamy and light mixture. Add vanilla essence and beat till attains a thick ribbon consistency.
Add in the flour little by little and mix well. In a separate  bowl beat egg white till it forms medium stiff peaks. This will take about three  minutes. Now gently fold this into the cake batter and pour into prepared cake tin. I used a 18"x 13" pan. Bake in 300 degree F for about 10- 12 minutes or till a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool down completely.

To make the whipped cream. Keep the bowl and the whisk in fridge for some time. Now into this cold bowl pour 2 cup of chilled  heavy whipping cream,essence and sugar. Beat this in a low speed for one minute and then increase the speed to high and beat till the cream turns into soft stiff peaks. Cover and keep in fridge till it is time to assemble the cake.
To assemble the cake:Cut cake into desired sized. I cut my sheet cake into three equal sized pieces. Place one sheet and drizzle a little of pineapple syrup. Spread a layer of whipped cream and then a little of chopped pineapple. Place the second layer, drizzle syrup,spread cream and pineapple pieces. Place the last layer, sprinkle some syrup and spread the rest of the cream all over and decorate. Enjoy!



Try this,
Hope you will all enjoy.
