Pineapple Passion Cake
This scrummy little dessert or treat any time oozes with love and passion and is sexy and sweet. Easy to make too. Did you know that pineapple has been traditionally used by homeopaths for treating patients suffering from impotence; pineapple is recommended for ‘improved libido’! The pineapple can be another aphrodisiac!
Pineapples are a rich source of Vitamin C, an essential vitamin for the production of happy hormones. Rich in antioxidants, which keep your skin glowing, young and radiant. The fruit is full of manganese which is essential for sexual health, especially for men! So now you know…
250g unsalted butter
250g caster sugar
250g ground almonds
50g self raising flour
200g fresh pineapple, chopped
50g soft brown sugar
Bake in oven at 325F /160 C /gas mark 3 - until firm to touch and light brown in colour. Cut into squares and keep in an airtight container.
Add a glaze - I used plum jam in this recipe but apricot is equally as good and you could substitute other seasonal fruits such as rhubarb or raspberries. Gently warm the jam and spoon over as the sponge cools. Gives a sweet chewy texture.
