Vegan Bake Sale 2012

As promised (if you have been following me on Facebook or Twitter), here are a few photos I took for the Vegan Bake Sale we had here in Dublin last Saturday (28th April 2012).
I donated a Pineapple Upside Down Cake with Coconut. I took a few shots while I was making it. But I haven't had the chance to write down the recipe yet. So, just some photos for now.

I like to use fresh pineapple instead of canned ones because the taste is so much nicer! I corked out the centre with a small knife.

Then, I greased the bottom of the pans and laid the pineapple rings. I sprinkled with a little soft dark brown sugar.

Poured in the batter.

All baked! Out of the oven!

I used fresh coconut that I grated and lightly toasted in the oven.

I iced the cake with vegan buttercream frosting and the toasted coconut.

At this stage I was dying to have a slice for myself!

I packed it in a box with the lid at the bottom...

Now some photos of the bake sale. (Sorry about the poor quality of these ones, it was a cloudy day and not much light was entering the hall. I thought they would be better shared despite this.) It was a great day! The cakes went away quickly and it seems everyone had a good time.

  4. Can I have a slice?... I love pineapples and cakes too. The natural pineapples are the best. Are the Azorean pineapples usual there for sale? They are very good :)

    It looks delicious... and with a cup of black or green tea could be a good idea.

  5. Elizabete, I didn't know about Azorean pineapples, I googled for some images and it seems they have shorted leaves at the top. I've never seen those kinds over here unfortunately.
    But definitely a nice cuppa is what is needed to go with this cake! ;)
