Soy Flour Pineapple Cake - Healthy and Gluten Free

I always wanted to try something different with cakes. This time I decided to make flour less cakes, this being the second one. My first experiment was a hit with Almond Honey Cake, so wanted to try now with soy flour. This cake too turned out so good and tasty. I added pineapple because Shoj likes pineapple a lot and I thought if it does not turn out good, then he would eat it at least because of pineapple.:) But he liked it!

1 1/3 cup Soy Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 can of Pineapple slices with Syrup (pineapple juice)
2 Eggs
2 tsp Oil
(Note: You can substitute 2 Eggs + 2tsp Oil = 4 Egg Whites)
2 tbsp Yogurt or Soy Yogurt

1. Preheat oven to 325F. 
2. Line baking cups or pan with parchment paper.

3. Remove the pineapple slices from the pineapple juice and cut the pineapple slices into small pieces.
(Note: You also use apples instead of pineapple, or you can also crush the apples/ pineapple in a blender - I wanted it to be chunky so did not use or crush the pineapple)
4. In a large mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder and sugar and mix well.

5. In another bowl mix the wet ingredients i.e., eggs, oil, yogurt and half of the pineapple juice from the can. Mix well and add this mixture to the flour mix and combine it with a hand mixer until well blended.

6. Now add the pineapple pieces and with a wooden spoon or spatula mix the batter gently.

7. Pour this batter into the prepared cups or pan and bake it for about 45 mins.
(Note: As there is no flour in this cake mix, we need to bake this cake in a medium oven and for longer time so that the flour will not burn and will cook properly).

Mickey Mouse Car on Road 4 Cake - Anush's 4th B'dy

This time again I wanted to experiment on Anush's birthday cake....I was thinking about this for a long time, but never planned for the design as I always do.
After I posted on Anush's birthday, I started getting sick because of sinus, that made me tensed as to whether I would be able to do this cake or not, but I did take some medicine and to my surprise this cake turned out to be awesome. I made this cake for the party that I planned, but on his birthday, I didn't have much patience so I did a small cookie cake. Then in the evening one of our friends arranged a surprise birthday party at her house for Anush, I was so thankful for them to do that...because the whole day I was feeling bad that I did not make anything special for him. So this time he had 3 cakes for his birthday....this makes me so so happy.

So here are the 3 cakes.....

2. Mickey Mouse on Road 4 Cake - Party Cake
For this Cake I used moist dark chocolate, french vanilla and butter cake mixes combined to form a marble cake, with whipped cream icing, mickey mouse clubhouse toys, (green, blue and black) color spray, black sugar sprinkles, white butter cream icing to write "happy birthday", and made yellow fondant letter for name "Anush".
First I made 3, 1/4 sheet cakes and one loaf cake, then combined two of the sheet ckaes to form the base, then cut out the remaining 1/4 sheet cake and loaf cake to get the shape of 4. when the cake work was complete, I first covered the base with whipped icing, then placed the 4, then covered that too with icing, then sprayed green, blue and black color spray. Sprinkled black sugar on top of the 4 shaped cake to look like road. Then marked with white butter cream icing to divide the road. With the same white butter cream icing wrote "happy birthday" and rolled the yellow fondant to shape letters for name "Anush". Then finally placed all the toys, candles and palm trees. This completes the cake! :)
