Eggless Pineapple and coconut cake

This recipe is almost a copy of Dr Sameena's cake. Mine is eggless, and with a few changes.

I was slightly worried about using coconut, because Niket hates it. But I think he didn't even know abt the secret ingredient! The cake was over amongst the two of us in 2 days! It was good warm as well as after a day.

I didn't have any eggs at home so I subbed egg with soy flour, baking soda and sour cream.

For flour, I used 1 Whole wheat flour, 1/2 oats and 1/2 all purpose / maida.

I didn't have pineapple juice, but about 3/4 cup of chopped pineapple.

1/2 cup Butter
2 cups Flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup grated fresh Coconut
Pineapple - chopped - 3/4 cup
2 large tbsps soy flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 large tbsps sour cream / curd
1/2 cup milk / buttermilk
1 tsps baking powder

Cream butter and sugar. Add sour cream/ curd and combine. Add the coconut and pineapple pieces and stir to combine.

Sift together flour, soda, baking powder, soy flour and add this to the butter-cream mixture in parts, along with milk.

Combine well. Pour into greased baking dish and bake at 180 deg for 25-30 mins. Let cool for 12-15 mins before you savor!

The pineapple chunks add moistness to the cake.. So good :)
