Christmas cake with pineapple wrapped in t-towel

shazzie10, Dec 2, 7:02am
I would so much appreciate help with finding a Christmas cake recipe that has pineapple in it.It has to be one of the yummiest Christmas cakes I have ever eaten.

The recipe (was from memory) in a monthly woman magazine (maybe Australia definitely not NZ).I accidently threw the magazine out but desperate to get a copy of the recipe. Have spent time trying to find it on the internet but haven't quite found what I am looking for.

This is the only thing I remember about it.It has crushed pineapple and once it's cooked, you take it out of the pan, wrap it in a couple of tea towels and then place the whole thing in a couple of plastic shopping bags.Some of the moistness comes from the steam created in the cake cooling inside the bag, however, I believe it must be more than that.

If someone can help me, I willl be internally grateful.I will make sure I don't make the same mistake again.

Thank you very much in anticipation.

December 2077? Wow did you go to the future? LOL

Yes, it really is the yummmiest of cakes.Didn't realise the NZWW had it. You need to keep that mag! Frame it or laminate it. I think it's that good. What is the longest you have kept the cake? I have always kind of made it a few nights before I need it... not as well organised as you hohee.Some of the people on this site are just a wealth of information. Fantastic!Merry Christmas...

SOrry,should read 2007!! Usually bake the cakes in November and when cool wrap in greaseproof and tinfoil than a plastic bag and place in the freezer which improves the flavour (read that years ago and have done it ever since.hohee.
