When I was living at home, my German mother used to always make a Gugelhupf.

These baking tins are now readily available in Australia in better department stores and make an impressive display for any cake.

There used to be only a few recipes for a "gugelhupf" and one of these was a butter cake, which if made now, would be nothing special. Occasionally, we would put chocolate through it to make it two colours.

Food from other countries has come a long way since then, and although Marzipan is also a German delicacy, which I just cannot get enough of, it is used in this cake along with pineapple pieces.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Makes: 10 servings

Ingredients
200 g soft Marzipan
175 g butter or margarine
165 g coconut sugar, or caster sugar
tsp vanilla essence
Pinch salt
300 g plain flour
4 tsp baking powder
6 eggs
300 g tinned pineapple pieces
Chocolate for icing (optional)
Bit of butter and 1 - 2 tsp bread crumbs for cake tin.

Method

Preheat the oven to 165 fan forced.

Cut the marzipan into small pieces and stir into the butter. Add the sugar, vanilla and salt and stir until smooth.

Add the remaining ingredients and the well-drained pineapple pieces, which should be finely chopped.

Ice with melted chocolate -optional -I iced just half of it as did not want the chocolate taste to take over. You could also sprinkle with icing sugar.
