Pineapple, strawberry, banana & white chocolate cake

Well I’ve got a treat for all of you today! Here in Zagreb the wind’s been blowing like crazy, and I decided to spend my day in the kitchen, baking a cake of course. Pineapples and strawberries have always been one of my favourite combinations, there’s a small juice bar where they make an amazing pineapple – strawberry smoothie and used to buy it every day after work, and for years now my favourite breakfast idea is yogurt with the same ingredients. So no wonder why I love this cake so much and I was looking forward to the moment that I was going to share the recipe with you.

Since I was a kid strawberries were my favourite fruit and I couldn’t wait till the season of strawberries came so my mother would get some from the farmers’ market. She would make some whipped cream, or we’d open a jar of Nutella and dip them in one or the other. To this day, nothing has changed but the fact that nowadays you can get strawberries if they’re in or out of the season. I still love them as much and any cake that has some in it, doesn’t last long in my house.

Start baking, I recommend this cake, it won’t disappoint!

  8. That’s quite a cake – I looked for white chocolate but didn’t see any listed in the ingredients? I love pineapple but don’t cook with it much – just eat it fresh.
