Pine-Apple Kuchen For My Big Day

Yesterday was my big day....Yeah, my birthday! It's been a hectic day and don't even have time to celebrate my birthday this year or pamper myself with an elegant treat. Don't feel like buying a ready made cake either, but did make a quick one though. A Pineapple & Apple kuchen! Kuchen in Germany means cake. So, at least I have my cake....a simple slice of cake! So, what do you think about having a non-cream cake for your birthday? Frankly, I don't mind at all.

Ingredients for Dough :
(A)
1/4 cup lukewarm water
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 tbsp yeast

(B)
3 tbsp butter, softened
1/4 cup lukewarm milk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tbsp lemon zest

(C)
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tspn salt

Method :

- combine ingredients (A) and leave to rest for 10 mins or untill bubbling.
- combine ingredients (B) and stir into ingredients (A) untill well mixed.
- add in ingredients (C) to form a sticky dough and let to rest for an hour or untill double in size.
- punch the dough to release air and press dough over to the pine-apple fillings.
- bake a t 170'C-175'C for about 35-40 mins.
- serve warm.



Ingredients for Pine-Apple filling :
4 large green apples, diced
a quarter fresh pineapple, diced
5 tbsp brown sugar
3/4 tbsp cinnamon powder
2 tbsp flour

- combine all ingredients except flour and simmer over low heat untill tender.
- then off the heat and stir in flour untill well mixed.
- leave cool before spreading it over to a 9" spring form tray.

Surprisingly, everyone likes it! It looks like a cake but tastes like bread. My son wallop about half of the cake and still requesting for more. Truely satisfying! I think it would probably goes well with some custard cream too! Enjoy!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! ^_^

  5. Happy Birthday to you!!! You deserve the best Kristy! I usually don't get a cake for my birthday. Making it yourself at least you get what you want! A good tasting simple cake!! Yummy!!

    I found some pandan extract! Before I had asked the lady at the checkout who usually works the store part. She said they didn't have any and she wanted to know what name it was in English. Then Sat when Maranda and I were waiting for our lunch we were in the back with the younger girls that cook, I asked one of them and she got it for me! So there you have it. I'll make a pandan treat in your honor!

    Take it easy and celebrate!!
    Cheers!

  19. Kristy, Happy Birthday! I wish you lots of love, health and happiness.
    Love the topping of this cake.
    p.s. "Kuchen" means "cake" in German. I usually get some pocket money for my birthday from my parents-in-law, and use them to get some anti-wrinkles stuff for my birthday.
