This cake is an amazing combination of chocolate and pineapple.The flavor and the aroma
of this cake is really awesome.This is made up of a light sponge drizzled with pineapple
juice,and iced with chocolate butter cream.I like only fresh stewed pineapple in this
recipe.So let’s get into the recipe!

1 tsp.baking powder
100 gm flour
100 gm sugar
1 tsp.pineapple essence

Separate the whites from the yolks.Beat the egg whites with salt till stiff.Add the yolks
and the whites gradually and beat well .Mix in the baking powder and flour.(do not beat at
this stage ,only fold in the flour.).Pour into greased tin(only at the bottom,or line at the
bottom with butter paper)Bake in a moderate oven(180 degrees )for 30-35 minutes.Allow
to cool and keep in the refridgerator till you prepare the icing .
