Pineapple Kiwi Cake

I use to bake cake at times but this was the first cake baked by me with proper whipped cream and decorations.This recipe is very close to me as it came out so perfect and was baked on my niece birthday by me few days back.

Ingredients for Cake :

1+3/4 cup All purpose flour
3/4 cup Sugar
1+1/4 cup Curd
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
Sligthly less than 3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp Milk
1 tsp vanilla essence

For Filling and icing :

1+ 3/4 Cup Whipping cream ( i used the ready one with sugar in it , just need to add cold water)
Tinned pineapple slices ( 1/2 tin)
10-12 pieces sliced kiwi (for garnishing)

Method : Sieve all purpose flour and keep it aside.Take another mixing bowl and whisk sugar and yoghurt till they are mixed properly.Now add baking powder and baking soda in it and mix well.
Keep it aside for 6-7 minutes so that fermentation takes place.

Now add vegetable oil and essence to this mixture and mix well.Add sieved flour in four batches and mix it using cut and fold method.

Grease the cake tin with butter and dust all purpose flour on it and pour the cake batter to fill upto 3/4 level only.Tap a bit to level the batter in cake tin.

Pre heat the microwave at convection mode at 180 degree for ten mins and now keep the tin inside pre heated microwave to bake the cake for 30-35 mins at 180 degree.Check with toothpick and bake for 5 more mins if required.

Take the cake tin out and brush it with milk and bake it again for 1 min this will provide glaze to the cake.

Keep it in baking tin for ten mins and than rest it on cooling wire rack till it is cool down completely.
Cake should always be cool before u start with icing.

Icing and layering : Take the whipping cream powder in cool bowl( bowl kept in freezer for half hour) and add cold water as mentioned on packet , whip it till soft peaks are formed.

Cut the cake in two halves with help of knife and apply sugar syrup on sliced cake , i have used syrup from pineapple tin only , u can use home made syrup too.

Apply whipped cream on bottom cut portion of cake and put sliced pineapple slices over it.Now put remaining half portion of cake over it and apply whipped cream all over the cake with help of knife and level it smoothly with help of knife.

Decorate pineapple slices over top of cake and round cut slices of kiwi at sides.Serve cool.

Cake with icing should be finished with in two days if kept in fridge.

Enjoy it with your loved ones :)
