Easy pineapple cake with whipped coconut cream and topped with raspberries

This cake is super easy, only uses 10 ingredients which you can all find in any supermarket and is absolutely delicious! Baking it is a breeze and the whipped coconut cream couldn't be easier to make as well. Of course the best thing is it's all vegan! A perfect tropical cake!

The recipe of this cake is all about it being super easy to make. Pop to your local supermarket where you should find all ingredients and the recipe is also super easy.

Most recipes for whipped coconut cream ask to chill the coconut cream in the fridge overnight, but I thought this was overcomplicating it. So I decided to change it around and whip it first and then chill it in the fridge while the cake needed time to cool down anyway - this way you don't need to plan ahead as much.

The cake itself was super fluffy with a lovely taste of pineapple and the whipped coconut cream and raspberries worked together perfectly.

Preheat your oven to 180C (360F).

Then add all wet ingredients into a food processor and blend together until you get a smooth mixture.

Add the dry ingredients to it and repeat the process again.

Get a round baking tin, line with baking paper and grease the sides with margarine. Pour the cake batter into it and bake in the oven for 55-60 min. Do the prick test to be sure it's completely baked (stick prick into take and if it comes out without any batter sticking to it then it should be done). Take out of the oven and let cool down completely.

In the meantime get 400ml of full fat coconut cream (make sure it's full fat) and drain all water. Add to a bowl together with 80g icing sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. Mix with a hand mixer for 2 minutes. Put in the fridge and let cool down for a few hours. You can do that while the cake is cooling down. If it gets warm the coconut whipped cream would lose it's stiffness.

When the cake has completely cooled down spread the whipped cream on top and add the raspberries. Keep away from tropical temperatures and leave the cake in the fridge as the coconut whipped cream might become runny. Enjoy!

I've been looking forward to making something vegan for Halloween for ages! And I brainstormed (pardon the pun) over and over again until I came up with the idea to make vegan brain cupcakes. It was so much fun, they tasted amazing and will definitely a talking point at any party they are served.

Vegan apple strudel with vegan home-made custard

Coming from Austria I also share a big fondness for the former emperor's favourite dessert, Viennese apple strudel. In Austria we have it on it's own but here in England they serve it with custard which is a heavenly combination. So I came up with a vegan apple strudel version and a delicious and easy home-made vegan custard. From preparations to finish this dessert can be made within 30 minutes! What are you waiting for?
