    Serves: 14 

    • 1 1/2 cups (190g) cake flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 6 eggs
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/2 cups (330g) white sugar
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

    • 12 maraschino cherries

    Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:1hour  ›  Ready in:1hour25min 

    1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees C.
    2. Sift the cake flour and baking powder together.
    3. Separate the eggs, put the egg yolks into a large bowl and the egg whites into a small bowl. With an electric mixer beat the egg yolks until thick and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Gradually beat in 3/4 cup of the white sugar. Add the lemon juice and pineapple juice. Add the sifted cake flour mixture gradually while continually beating. Beat only until just blended (about 1 1/2 minutes).
    4. With an electric mixer beat the egg whites with the salt until moist peaks form (about 1 minute). Gradually beat in 3/4 cup of the white sugar (about 50 seconds).
    5. Fold the beaten egg whites into the batter and mix only until blended. Pour batter into an ungreased 25cm ring tin. With a knife or spatula gently cut through batter going round in a circular motion six times to release any air bubbles.
    6. Bake at 170 degrees C for about 1 hour or until golden brown and firm to the touch. Invert ring tin on rack to cool. Once cake is cool loosen sides with a spatula and remove from tin. Decorate cake with whipped cream and garnish with wedges of pineapple and maraschino cherries.

    I didn't like this cake, taste wise or the method...I think the pan needs to be greased. Mine came apart trying to get it out of the pan. The taste was a bit like a store-bought sponge cake. We put fresh pineapple, whipped cream, and cherries on it and it was better.  -  18 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    it is delicious. but what i did, was when i got the cake out of the oven and waited for it to cool down, i soaked it briefly (5 mins) in pineapple juice. it was delicious. YUUMMMMMMY!  -  26 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe baked up sooooo light and fluffy, and I had no trouble taking it out of the pan. However, it was too sweet for my taste, and I can't quite taste the pineapple. It tasted like a sweet regular sponge cake. Next time I would use 1 cup of sugar, and added more pineapple juice. 5 star for texture and 4 stars for taste.  -  05 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
