Lemon-pineapple cake

Spring form (20-22 cm)

For the base:

1 ½ cup flour
½ cup raw sugar
½ cup oil
½ cup vegetable milk or water
2 teaspoons baking powder
the zest of 2 lemons
1 teaspoon lemon essence

Mix the oil, vegetable milk/water and sugar and whisk until the sugar dissolves. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix everything thoroughly . The composition should have the consistency of cream otherwise add a little bit more water / flour as necessary.

Grease the spring form with a little bit of oil.

Pour it into the baking spring form and bake it, in the preheated oven, for approx . 30-40 minutes. Check with a straw if it’s baked inside.

Allow it to cool (it can be prepared the day before).

For the cream:

2 packs silken tofu (600 g )
3-4 tablespoons raw sugar, to taste
1 teaspoon lemon essence
1 tablespoon lemon juice
5-6 tablespoons pineapple, finely  chopped

Drain the tofu well.

Blend (with a blender) the tofu, sugar, lemon juice, lemon essence  until a smooth paste is obtained and the sugar is melted. Add the pineapple and mix.

For the jelly:

juice of 2-3 oranges
juice of 2 lemons
raw sugar, to taste
2 teaspoons  agar – agar

Strain the orange and lemon juice. Cook it together with the sugar, stirring occasionally. When it starts boiling add the agar ( dissolved in a little bit of orange juice, otherwise it will form  lumps). Cook it for 2 minutes,  stirring.  Allow to cool, check and stir  regularly because it hardens relatively quickly.

Whipped cream for garnish –  add 1/2 teaspoon of lemon essence (see recipe here )

Assembling the cake :

Remove the base from the spring form and wash the form (to prevent sticking later).
Replace the base cake in the spring form, add the  tofu cream and  spread evenly .

Garnish as desired with lemon slices .

Pour carefully the jelly on top and refrigerate it.

Before serving remove the cake from the spring form ( use a knife to release the cake from the side of the form ), place the cake on a platter and garnish with coconut cream .
