Everyone enjoys coffee cakes, and we all try to have one at home at all times in case a friend stops by to say hi.

And, even though most store-bought cakes are delicious, there’s nothing better than a homemade cake that you have prepared yourself.

It’s even better when it’s easy.

  • 1 egg

  • 2 gr vanillin
  • 100 ml milk

Add the fresh milk, and flour, and whisk again until you get a thin batter.

Then, add the baking powder and gently mix using a spoon or spatula.

Bring the pineapple mixture to a boil.

Then add the cake batter on top. Close the lid of the pan, and bake the cake until a toothpick inserted in it comes out clean.

Time for the toothpick

Make sure you do the toothpick test in spots that are thick rather than thin because those parts take longer to bake.

Once the cake is ready, remove the pan from the heat and turn it upside down in a serving dish.
