Pineapple and Yam Cake

pineapple_yam_cakeWhat to do with some pieces of fresh (or canned) pineapple that you don’t wanna eat anymore and some yam you didn’t use? Just make a pineapple and yam cake! You’ll need: 1 and 1/4 cup of oil or butter, 2 cups sugar, 2 cups flour, 2 tsp cinnamon, salt, baking soda, 4 eggs, 3 cups grated yam, 1 cup pineapple, and 1 cup walnuts.

Instructions:

  1. Mix the melted butter (or oil) with sugar.
  2. Add flour, cinnamon and baking soda (I always mix the baking soda with 1 tsp of lemon juice first).
  3. Add 4 eggs, one at a time.
  4. Incorporate 3 yams, pineapple and walnuts (if the mixture is too thick and sticky, add a bit of milk or water).
  5. Pour into a big cake pan and put in the oven (350F) for one hour or until done.

Fresh Pineapple and Whipped Cream Dessert

Lila at Lime and Lemon inspired me for this easy and delicious dessert (her version here). Pineapples are very good these days, and you can find lots of them in Safeway, Superstore and Coop.  The version I made last night included: 1/2 pineapple, 1 banana, 250 ml whipping cream, some 6-8 social biscuits, raisins and a bit of rum.

Instructions:

  1. Peel and cut the pineapple. Use 1/2 (if pineapple is big).
  2. In a bowl, break the biscuits, pour a bit of rum, and add the raisins. With a fork, mash them thoroughly. Add as much of the pineapple juice as you have available (if you have some juice in the house, that would work too. Or just a bit of water).
  3. Add the sliced banana and the pineapple.
  4. Beat the whipping cream and add as much as needed.
  5. Put everything in small serving dishes and leave in the fridge for some 10-15 minutes to cool down.

As I said: fresh, quick and delicious!
