Cooking Time:

< 30 min

Cooking Style:



3 x 250 ml cake flour
2 x 250 ml sugar
5 ml bicarbonate of soda
7.5 ml cinnamon
5 ml salt
375 ml canola oil
4 large eggs
10 ml vanilla essence
1 x 440 g can crushed pineapple, do not drain
100 g pecan or walnuts, chopped
500 ml mashed banana

Cream cheese icing:
120 g butter, softened
500 ml icing sugar
2 x 230 g LANCEWOOD® Medium Fat Plain Cream Cheese, at room temperature*
5 ml vanilla essence
Extra chopped nuts (pecan nuts or walnuts) for decorating
Dried pineapple and banana chips for decorating (optional)


Sift the flour, sugar, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon, and salt together. Beat together the oil, eggs and vanilla essence. Add to the dry ingredients and mix well. Add the pineapple, with the liquid, nuts and bananas. Mix until well combined. Spoon into 3 greased and lined 23 cm in diameter cake tins. Use the back of a spoon to spread out evenly. Bake in a preheated oven at 180◦C for 25 - 30 minutes, or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Leave to cool in the pans before turning out. Cool completely before icing.

Beat the butter and icing sugar together until pale yellow. Add the cream cheese and vanilla essence and mix well. Apply icing to the top of each of the 3 cakes and stack to form one large cake. Sprinkle with chopped nuts. Decorate with dried pineapple and banana chips (optional).

Makes 1 cake
