Instructions
  1. Sieve the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, 1/4 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp baking powder together, atleast 6 to 8 times. Set aside.
  2. Beat the sugar and curd together.
  3. Add milk and beat again.[ you can use your electric mixer for this]
  4. Add 1/4 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp baking powder to the above and mix. Set aside without disturbing for 5 mins. It starts to bubble up and get frothy.
  5. Preheat the oven at 180 degrees for 10 mins.
  6. Take the sieved flour in a large mixing bowl and add the frothy mix. Fold in gently.
  7. Add the oil.
  8. Beat the cake batter with a egg beater for 30 seconds, until no lumps are left.Mix in the pineapple essence.
  9. Pour into a greased baking dish. [i used a loaf tin]
  10. Bake at 180 degrees for 40 minutes or until the skewer inserted comes out clean.
  11. Allow to cool for 10 mins and demold carefully.
  12. Let the cake cool completely before slicing.
Recipe Notes

1. Oven temperature and time may vary. Check for the cake to leave the sides before doing the skewer test.

2. This being a very basic recipe , you can easily turn it into any flavour of your choice by adding the appropriate essence. In case you want to make it chocolate flavoured, add 2 tbsps of cocoa powder while sieving the flour.

3. I have also tried the completely whole wheat version using the same recipe. It turns out equally good. Just increase the number of times you sieve the flour to 10  and use 1 and 3/4 cups of flour.

4. Its important to allow the cake to cool completely, in order to get neat slices.

    At what stage do we have to add the pineapple essence? I think you missed mentioning that.

  6. Akila Subramanian says:

    hey Anjali thanks for letting me know. We need to add it after folding in the flour. Updated the same in the post.
