Ingredients

For the cake

225g/8oz plain flour

350g/12½oz caster sugar

85g/3oz cocoa powder

1½ tsp baking powder

1½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

2 free-range eggs

250ml/9fl oz milk

125ml/4½fl oz vegetable oil

2 tsp vanilla extract

250ml/9fl oz boiling water

For the chocolate icing

200g/7oz plain chocolate

200ml/7fl oz double cream

Method

Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Grease and line two 20cm/8in sandwich tins.

For the cake, place all of the cake ingredients, except the boiling water, into a large mixing bowl. Using a wooden spoon, or electric whisk, beat the mixture until smooth and well combined.

Add the boiling water to the mixture, a little at a time, until smooth. (The cake mixture will now be very liquid.)

Divide the cake batter between the sandwich tins and bake in the oven for 25–35 minutes, or until the top is firm to the touch and a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.

Remove the cakes from the oven and allow to cool completely, still in their tins, before icing.

For the chocolate icing, heat the chocolate and cream in a saucepan over a low heat until the chocolate melts. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk the mixture until smooth, glossy and thickened. Set aside to cool for 1–2 hours, or until thick enough to spread over the cake.

To assemble the cake, run a round-bladed knife around the inside of the cake tins to loosen the cakes. Carefully remove the cakes from the tins.

Spread a little chocolate icing over the top of one of the chocolate cakes, then carefully top with the other cake.

Transfer the cake to a serving plate and ice the cake all over with the chocolate icing, using a palette knife.


Tips for Making the Perfect Chocolate Pineapple Cake

When it comes to chocolate cake, there are endless possibilities for flavor combinations. But one of our all-time favorites has to be chocolate pineapple. The two flavors complement each other perfectly, and the result is a truly delicious cake.

If you're thinking about making a chocolate pineapple cake, here are a few tips to help you make the perfect one:

1. Use fresh pineapple. This will ensure that your cake has the best flavor possible. If you can't find fresh pineapple, you can use canned, but make sure to drain it well first.

2. Add some acidity. Pineapple is a relatively sweet fruit, so adding a little bit of acidity will help to balance out the flavors. You can do this by using pineapple juice instead of water in the recipe, or by adding a bit of lemon juice or vinegar.

3. Be careful not to overbake the cake. Chocolate cakes can dry out quickly, so be sure to check on it frequently towards the end of the baking time. A toothpick inserted into the center of the cake should come out clean when it's done.

4. Allow the cake to cool completely before frosting it.
