Tropical Teacake with Pineapple

A teacake is a simple, firm-crumbed cake with no frosting and eaten warm from the oven with the fingers rather than a fork.  The top is often sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar and served in slices rather than wedges, which are buttered like bread.  I can’t remember a weekend visitor ever leaving our home without having enjoyed one of Mum’s delicious teacakes.  This recipe is a modern take on the old classic, incorporating the beautiful fresh flavour of pineapple which also helps keep it moist and delicious. I hope you enjoy it!
