  1. Hi Manjula, while making frosting for pineapple cake Can we add pineapple essence so that it gives more pineapple flavor? If yes in how much quantity should it be used?

  2. dear manjula aunty
    amazing recipe.. quick. simple and yum…

    please let me know if i can store this cake out of refrigerator for how many days.. (without icing and the last moment syrup addition into pores) i want to send it for someone ..


  3. Hello,

    This cake came out super good. I don’t use eggs and this recipe was so so so perfect! It rose well int he pan and tasted amazing. I used fresh whipped cream as frosting and decorated with Maraschino cherries and cut pineapple. Unbelievably good recipe. Thank you so much.

  4. Thanks for sharing eggless cake recipe. Want to eat such yummy pineapple cake then order a cake from monginis. They provide fresh cakes at affordable cost.

  5. Thank you so much for this delicious recipe. I tried it and the cake turned out delicious!
    I just had one comment – the 20 oz can of crushed pineapple actually gives 1 cup juice and 1 cup drained pineapple. However the recipe uses only 1/2 cup of juice and 1/2 cup drained pineapple. Did I do something different? Your response would be appreciated, thanks!

  6. dear aunty
    the cake looks really lovely .
    i am looking forward to preparing it today .
    all the measurements are in cups and it is slightly confusing.
    for maida 1 cup =128 gms
    for butter 1 cup =113 gms
    for juice 1 cup =125 ml.
    for condensed milk half can is 200ml.
    are my calculations correct?
    it would be better if the measurements were in weights.
    thank you

  7. Dear aunty whatever way u have mention I tried this cake receipe only diff was oven preheat I made it at 180 .c for 50 min but it wad not cooked only I tried my best my cake was burn from outside but it was not cooked from inside what to do any why it happend? Everybody shouted me at home for wasting are ingreients

  8. I was so looking forward to eating this cake. It turned out bitter 🙁 The only change I made was to use a butter substitute.. Could you please tell me what might have gone wrong? Also i baked it in a 3×8 inch loaf tin and it took more than twice the mentioned amount of time to bake.

    1. Hi Shilpa

      I tried this recipe and it turned out greatt..

      Make sure you aren’t using too much of pineapple as excess pineapple can give bitter taste.

      try it again with same recipe, I am sure it will taste yum..:

  9. Hello Auntie

    Your website here says 1-1/4 cups of maida but your video says 1 + 1-1/4 cups maid a. I made last cake looking at your video and this one I am following your website. I think my proportions are wrong now. My cake is still in oven and I guess it won’t come out well.

    Please correct the error on your website so that others dont get confused like me.

  10. Hi,
    Tried your recipe today. I am vegan so I replaced butter and milk with vegan alternatives along with little egg re-placer… The cake turned out to be amazingly delicious! Ur tip of adding little pineapple juice in the end over hot cake rocks!!

    Thank you so much…..u r a *star*

    Lots of luv 🙂

  11. Dear Aunty,

    After viewing your pineapple cake, I tried sending you an email asking if orange cake would turn out same replacing pineapple. Since, I didnt hear from you and decided to try one by myself..I would luv to share with you the same.

  13. Hello Aunty,

    Waiting for reply

  14. hello Manjula ji
    I tried this cake n it was really great..I need help..I want to know where do you get the cool whip/whipping cream from n which brand? I got once but it was not like was too watery..

  15. Hello Manjulaji,

    I was thinking about making this cake tomorrow for about 10-15 people using 9″ cake pans. Could you please post the recipe to accommodate that many people? Also, can I substitute the condensed milk with vanilla pudding and evaporated milk? Will still be soft?
    Thanks in advance!!

  16. Manjula ji,

    Thank you for this wonderful recipe. My child has egg and nut allergies – so I am always looking for eggless recipes. This tastes awesome. I wanted to make this for a Birthday party – I was wondering if I can double this recipe without changing the oven temperature and timing.

  17. Hello aunty,
    Your recipes are awsome.You teach like a mother, each n everything.I tried all of your rice recipes.aunty i couldn’t find baking powder on indian store so plz let me know from where i can get that or only baking soda can do….please guide.

    1. You should be able to get baking powder in regular grocery stores. Most of them usually carry KRAFT’S Calumet Baking powder. Has always worked for me (make sure to check the expiration date).

  18. Manjula Aunty,

    You are the best!! I have tried a coupld of your recipies and your recipies always come out great. I love your website!! This cake recipe is awesome.

  19. Hello Aunty,

  21. Hi Manjula!
    I love your recipes, I have tried a few, they always come out good. I feel like I am right there in your kitchen learning how to cook delicious Indian food. You should get your own TV show teaching all those “chefs” how is done. Pay attention Oprah, this is your new cooking star.

  22. hi..manjula auntie,

    this cake i made from your recipe turned out to be great…., except for a bit part in the din’t cook well…..should i increase the bake time and reduce the temperature???

    thanks for the great recipe!!

  23. Hi Manjula,
    I tried this recipe.
    The cake did not come out perfect, it was not baked well in the middle.
    But the corners and crust were just fine. The taste was good too.

  24. Hello,
    I stumbled upon your website on google search and so far loved some of the recipes that are listed and seen few videos. I have been looking for a way to make an eggless pineapple cake for quite some time and this recipe so far has been the easiest.

    Thank you,

  25. Hi manjula aunty,
    Wish u & ur family a happy new year.
    i want to ask u where will i get the cake tins & which one should i purchase as i am new to USA i am not able to find such type of cake tins & i have tried many of ur recipes & it came out good . Thank you so much for ur wonderful recipes. plz let me know which cake tins will u recommend me. waiting for ur rply

    Thank U

  26. Hello Auntie,

    thank you so much for this delicious recipe. I have made it several times and it turns out absolutely perfect. My family loves this cake and its wonderful to have with tea or even after dinner as dessert.

    I usually cut my cake into squares and serve it with one spoonful of coolwhip cream topped with the crushed pineapple and a sprinkle of crushed pistachios.

  27. hello.
    I loved the recepie but I just wanted to kno can I make the same cake with fresh pineapple?
    Also i wanted to know if can i make the cake in cooker and if yes what will be the procedure?

  28. hi manjulaji,
    I want to try this cake but I don’t have cake tin.Can I use those pyrex glass container for baking?If yes will there be a different temp.I have to bake it on ?
    please let me know

  29. My boyfriend and I love this cake! Instead of sweetened condensed milk I used a commercial soy creamer and added sugar until it approximated the sweetness of the condensed milk. The texture is wonderful and the cardamom level is so nice – there, but not screaming at you! haha For the top I used solid, cold coconut cream from one can of coconut milk with some powdered sugar and 1/2 vanilla bean (scraped) and whipped it just like cream in my stand mixer. I’ll be making this a lot. Thanks for the recipe!!

  30. Hi Aunty,

    Can I substitute milk + sugar for condensed milk? (my son is allergic to dairy products) If so, can you suggest me the equilvalent proportions?

    thanks in advance,

  31. Thanks aunty for the wonderful eggless recipe as I hate the smell of eggs.My cake came out really well but my batter was runny unlike yours which seems a littlte stiff.Also I felt that the cake was a little more moist than required.Where can I have gone wrong?

  32. Hello Manjula Aunty,

    I made the Eggless Pineapple cake for my husband’s birthday, was it a hit! more than a hit!!!! I had also invited our friends and all loved it……
    Thank You for sharing such a wonderful and simple cake recipe!

    I was also curious to know whether pineapple can be subsituted with other fruits?

  33. Hello Manjula Aunty,
    I tried your eggless pineapple cake recipe and it turned out very well.
    Just wanted to ask you to make a cake for 20+ people do i need to double all the ingredients as mentioned above.

    Please reply.


  34. hi manjula, i tried your eggless pineaple cake for my son who cannot eat egg as he is allergic to it. He enjoyed it n so did my whole family,thanks a lot

  35. Sarita,
    I also noticed in your mail to Manjula that you stated

    “I put it in oven with 375 deg as u said,within 5 min cake’s top layer becames black”

    If you notice – Manjula’s recipe says 325.

    That still should NOT have caused your cake to burn so quickly within the first five minutes but …… double check your temperature as always.

    Hope this helps!

  36. Sarita,
    Just to be curious? Do you live in the States? People have ovens from all over the world and they can be different so I want to make sure what I’m talking about is correct. It sounds like you might have not preheated the over properly, had it on the wrong temperature or you may have somehow had it on broiler element on perhaps. The reason I say this is because I have a Viking double convection oven and when I turn my oven on to “bake” and set the temperature, while the oven is preheating, it preheats by also using the broiler to help speed up the preheating process. Once it reaches the desired set temperature, the broiler element shuts off automatically.
    What happened to you – happened to me once. We’d just built and moved into our home and I wasn’t familiar enough with my oven and only after putting something in the oven to bake and not preheating the oven to the full temperature and having the top become completely black – I read my oven instructions and discovered why.
    I would definitely try making the cake again but make sure that your oven is set properly and that the top heating elements are working properly (since that is where your cake burned – the top) before putting your cake in – that way you won’t waste an entire cake and wind up having it burn again.

  37. Hi Manjula aunty,I have just seen ur all recps,I tried eggless pinapple cake,But I got problem,I put it in oven with 375 deg as u said,within 5 min cake’s top layer becames black ,it was smelling burning ,so i lower temp to 180 degs,and kept it for 20 min,I saw cake had risen a lot ,and taken it out an checked with knife,so it was not cooked at bootom side,so why cake might hv burnt?

    1. Sarita, did you bake the cake too close to the top of the oven? Always bake using the rack in the MIDDLE of the oven so there is equal distance to the top and bottom of the inside of the oven.

    2. Sarita,
      In US the unit is Fahrenheit but in India all appliances have temperature in Celsius which might have made your cake burn. A friend of mine made the same mistake as she was used to 180C which is about 350 F. She did not convert and her cake did not cook properly.

  38. Hello Aunty,

    i have a question…my oven has different symbols like top n bottom heat, bottom heat only , top heat only….which one should be set for baking a cake…

    pls reply soon as i am new to baking…

    thanks…n regards

    1. Chavi,

      You seem to have an OTG. It bakes excellent cake. The top heat option is for broiling, which is generally used for meats and for browning purpose. The bottom heat is used for baking. Both heat are required while making Naan or Baati. You may also search on Google as I am not an expert but have an OTG in India. Right now I am in US so have a bigger oven. Hope this helps you.

      1. Hi Sonal.

        Thanks a lot for your reply..i really dont know if its an OTG because it looks like an oven to me. Its a big oven below my cooking range…but your reply is very helpful….regards

  39. Hi,
    I have a no bake eggless cheesecake recipe that is very easy – this may work better for people here in the US or other areas as I am not sure if you’d be able to get all the ingredients / pans there. If you don’t want

    2 cups grambcracker crumbs – you can buy them already crushed or crush them yourself. If you crush them yourself – make sure they are very fine.
    6 Tbsp. Margarine, melted
    1 cup Sugar, divided
    4 pkg / blocks (8 oz. each) Cream Cheese, softened
    1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping, thawed


    MIX graham crumbs, margarine and 1/4 cup sugar; press onto bottom of 13×9-inch pan. Refrigerate while preparing filling.


    BEAT cream cheese and remaining 3/4 cup sugar in large bowl with mixer until well blended.
    Stir / Fold in thawed tub of whipped topping and then gently spoon over crust.

    REFRIGERATE 4 hours or until firm.

    If you wish to make this a strawberry or cherry cheesecake – use one can of strawberry or cherry pie filling and top the prepared cheesecake after it’s set in the refrigerator for 4 hours or until firm and set.

    Store leftovers in refrigerator.

    If you wish to make a smaller version – cut ingredients in half and use a 9 inch pie plate – follow same direction just use half the amount of ingredients and prepare in a 9 inch pie plate.

      1. Thanks Manjula,

        I know that you’ll enjoy it. It’s very simple. I wrote that you have to used “lite” cool whip but you can actually use any kind that you would like.

        Also, if you like to have a little bit thicker graham cracker crust on the bottom you can always increase the amount of graham crackers by 3/4 cup and add another tablespoon or two of melted butter. Sometimes I also will add another half can of pie filling as well if I want more of that. It’s versatile and as cooks know – you can always play around with it. Enjoy!

  40. Aunti, I want to thank you for this amazing recipe. My husband absolutely adores this cake. I had tried some other eggless cakes, but none had the moist consistency my husband loves. I also tried making it as an apple cake, which we also enjoyed very much. I used granny smith apples, and they aren’t very juicy, so I used apple juice from a bottle for the liquid. I processed the apples in the food processor until they were about the same size pieces as crushed pineapple. I had made those things that look like pretzels which you dip in sugar syrup, so I had syrup to spare. I used that on top of the cake by just painting it on lightly after warming it in the microwave and then sprinkled the top with a little cinnamon. Very tasty! But my husband says to be sure and tell you he likes your pineapple best. 🙂

  41. Hi aunty,
    The cake came out very well and my parents liked it so much. I have a request can you also post how to make eggless cheese cake and eggless white forest cake.
    Thank you.

  42. Hi Aunti Ji,
    I am so pleased to have found your website. I have made quite a few recipes from your site and have been very pleased with the results each time. As a vegetarian it’s difficult to find good eggless cake recipes and I don’t feel egg replacers are a good substitute, but now I have found the perfect cake. Your eggless pineapple cake is the only cake that I have come across that is spongy and moist. I recently made them for my children’s 2nd and 4th birthdays. Once they were decorated they looked amazing our guests could not believe they were homemade. I was wondering can the pineapples be replaced with something else to give a different flavour? I would be very grateful if you could recommend a chocolate cake recipe. Aunti ji please post more cake recipes. Thank you.

  43. Hello Auntie,

    I am sorry that, i didn’t see you have already posted a cake recipe..

    1) In India, I know only “amul butter” & that is “salty” so, if I don’t use salt in cake then ?

    2) Have you used fresh pineapple? then how you used? I read your 1 reply that you have suggested to making “stew”. How to make “pineapple stew”?

    3) Please post some more recipe of “Egg-less” cake.

    Reply me as soon as possible,

    Thank You.

    1. Archana,

      You can use Amul Butter and omit the salt in the recipe. I have been preparing cakes with amul butter and it gives a unique flavor to the cakes which you’ll definitely love.
      You can use fresh pineapple and crush it in a processor or chop it fine.

  44. Hi Manju mausi,
    How are you ? I am so happy to found you here 🙂 If you remember me, I am Runjhun, Battak and Anubha’s cousin – Kaju 🙂
    You have no idea how badly I was searching this recipe for 4 years….my husband had it somewhere and since then, craves for it…I tried lots of cakes – Vanilla cake with pineapple etc etc. nothing worked….and FINALLY !! YAYYY !!! I made this cake, it has come exactly you have showed in the video :)…now, I am waiting to eat it…I made this for my husband’s birthday :)…it’s a ‘surprise’ bday cake for him 🙂
    Hope to hear from you soon…Take care and thanks !

  45. Dear Jain,

    I was asked to make this cake for a girl I work with. I was so happy to find your website! Such clear and easy instructions. I look forward to visiting often.

    Best wishes, Amy

  46. I really loved this recipe. As I am staying in a hostel I can’t make this.But I think this will be a yummy cake. I will try it out and let you know.Thanx aunty for your delicious recipe.

  47. Hi Manjula Aunty,

    I tried making this cake today and it came out perfect. It was very moist and spongy. My family loved it and especially my 2-1/2 year old son who usually does not eat anything sweet, loved it.

    I wanted to ask you if I can I make Orange Cake using the same recipe, just replacing pineapple for orange.

    Do reply. Thanks a ton for all your good work.


    1. Rozy, baking soda and baking powder are similar in that they are both leavening agents, but which one is best for a particular dish is a longer answer. They are not automaticallly interchangeable. You’d be best to Google it for more complete information.

      1. Baking soda is sodium bi-carbonate. It reacts with acids to produce carbon dioxide bubbles which make dishes rise.

        Baking powder is baking soda and an acid salt.

        When making a dish that does not have an acid component of it’s own, you use baking powder instead.

        Some recipes require both when extra leavening is required.

    1. Leena and Swati, Here is a basic recipe for butter frosting/icing (same thing):

      1) melt 1/2 cup butter in a saucepan on low heat til golden (don’t let it burn),
      2) remove butter from heat,
      3) sift 4 cups of powdered sugar/confectioner’s sugar (same thing) into a large bowl,
      4) mix the melted butter into the sugar with a spoon,
      5) Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and blend,
      6) mixing with a spoon or whisk, blend in about 1/4 cup of milk or light cream into the powdered sugar. Add gradually the milk or cream until the icing is of a spreading consistency (similar to a thick batter).

      Spread icing evenly, but not too thick, over cooled cake and the icing will firm up after a few minutes. This recipe may make more icing than you need for this sized cake.

      Note: you must use powdered sugar NOT granulated sugar.

      Hope you like it. 🙂

  48. hello aunty,

  49. one of the best cakes that I have ever eaten. Texture is so soft as if lots of eggs are added. None would believe its eggless. In general I don’t like cakes. But this cake makes me have some now and then.

  50. Hi Manjula Aunty,

    I must tell you that your website is really awesome. You have inspired so many like me to learn new dishes which looked impossible before seeing your site. I have tried Papdi chat, pani puri, mathri, khasta kachori, samosa, besan ladoo, kulfi, pineapple cake, gajar ka halwa, gujia, nan khatai, namak paare, bread pakora, masala french fries, spicy potatoes and many others and each one of the dishes came out perfectly even in their first trial. Special thanks for eggless cake!

    Thanks a lot! You rock! 🙂

  51. Dear Manjula aunty,

    I love all your recipes. Thanks so much for walking me through the eggless cake recipe! I’ve been wondering for a long time how to make a good eggless cake. This time I think I will (finally!) succeed.


  52. hello ! as far as i know, you can improvise on a recipe, i never even heard of ghee and i like my president butter 😀 you can use crisco as an alternative i guess !

  53. hi manjula aunty,

    i tried this receipe 3 to 4 times and its perfect my family loves it.
    i also decorate this cake with whipping cream with some decoration.
    its amazing.
    thanks for sharing this awesome receipe.


  54. I tried this cake today and my family loves it. Thank you for your video recipe. We love all your recipes we have tried! You are an excellent cook!what is the difference between backing soda and backing powder. thanks.

  55. Hi,

    Can any one of baking products (baking soda / baking powder) be used? If yes what should be the quantity of that one ingredient? Is there any substitute for condensed milk?

    Thank you.

  56. Hi manjuladidi

    I tried it and comeout very well. Today i tried because tomorrow xmas.

    but i feel it littilebit hard. Dont know why? is it like that didi?
    Anyway thanks for the receipe. and i try almost all ur sweet items like carrot halwa, apple jilabi etc. Very simple and i like ur demonstartion also. veryeasy to understand.
    once more thanks didi. And
    HAppyXmas and Happy New year to u and your family. God bless You.


  57. Hello Manjula ji,
    Thanks for your recipe.
    Yesterday night i tried this cake and i placed the cake in middle rack of the oven but it is taken around 45 min even though it is sticking to the tooth pick.
    I am not comfortable with butter ,ghee smell.
    so can you please suggest me any replacement for butter like veg oil,dalda.
    thanks in advance

  58. Hi Manjulaji,

    Can we use a round cake pan instead of sqaure (about 9″ in diameter)? Also, I was able to get only unsweetend crushed pineapple. Would that work for the recipe or do I need to add sugar ? Please let me know the answer to these queries ASAP as I am planning to prepare this cake or my husband’s birth-day on Wednesday :))


    1. A round pan would work, but generally you want to have the same thickness when poured.

      8×8 = 64in^2
      9 inch roiund pan = 63.62 in^2 so that should work well.

      We doubled the recipe and used 9×13. (127in^2 is almost 2x64in^2)

  59. i love the way u teach us …………….my mom learnt a lot from you …………..thanks for teaching us and plzz keep doing it for us …………….n if u can then plzz send new recipies in my e-mail id ……as i love to eat whatever u tell us n my mom trys to make it thus plzz ……………………..thanking you at last

  60. Hi Manjula Ji,
    Thanks for the recipe. I tried the cake and it came out very well (made it using the Condensed milk). I would like to see if we can replace condensed milk.
    Could you please tell me if we can substitute Condensed milk with any other thing.


  61. hello aunty,
    the cakes looks amazing, but in india it’s not as easy to find canned pineapples. can you please suggest a method using real pineapples. and the proportions, also what to substiute for the pineapple juice?
    and when you said no mixing, only folding, won’t that lead to lumps?

    1. I am surprised you said canned pineapple not easily available in India.I am eating canned pineapple past 20 yrs.U’ll easily find them in confectioner’s shop and it is also easily available at grocerry stores.

  62. Hello Manjula Aunty,

    I tried this cake and it came out wonderful.can you plz let me know that if i can vary the pineapple for mango or berries and if yes then what do i need to use instead of pineapple juice .plz do reply .


  63. Any baking powder substitute. Why cant we use eno.
    All baking powders in India contain aluminum, apart from being bad for health(would definitely keep away from kids) also adds a tinny flavor to the end product.
    Any substitutes

  64. Dear Manjulaben,

    I made this cake for my dad’s 71st bday, we all loved it, and topped it with ice-cream and chopped canned pineapple pieces.
    I just wanted to say thank you very much for sharing your receipes. I have told many of my friends and family about your site, especially those who I know do not eat onions and garlic.
    You have great varieties!

  65. Hi Manjulaji,
    Thanks for posting this recipe. I made this cake for my mom’s 69th birthday, she is a total vergetarian and she enjoyed it a lot. I did make some modifications to the recipe as per my mom’s likes and dislikes and what was available in my pantry. I used same amount of cake flour in place of the all purpose flour, I subsituted 1 cup of grated carrots for pineapple as my mom does not like pineapple and 1/2 cup water for the pineapple juice. Since I had to use water in place of the pineapple juice I added 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar. I also substituted 1/2 tsp of ground pumpkin spice in place of the cardamom powder as I did not have that in my pantry. I add 2 tablespoons of chopped walnuts and 1 tablespoon of golden raisins roughly chopped. I baked the cake in a 2 qt square corningware dish and so I had to increase the baking time to 30 minutes. All in all the cake turned out super moist and very delicious. Thanks to you for your hard work and sharing all tehse wonderful recipes with the rest of the world. My mom had given up on onions, garlic about a few years ago and now when she visits me, thanks to your website, I am able to make the same dishes for all of us and she can enjoy them too as they are all saatvik. Thanks a million.

  68. hi aunty
    This is tejaswini from india.We are brahmins .From years we tried many recipes of eggless cakes but none was good. Aunty i tried ur recipe it came out wonderful. Thnaks aunty. I love u. Can we put other fruits instead of pineapple?.Thanks aunty

      1. You can’t prepare it in a microwave. Since baking a cake takes a lot of time and continuous heat application, a cake can only be made in an oven.
        Hopefully that answers your question. (:

  69. Hello Manjula Aunty,
    Thanks a lot for this wonderful eggless pineapple cake recipe, i tried making cake many times but every time my
    cake turns to a hard cookies. But this time I follow your this recipe and first time am successful in making a yummy
    delicious cake, but only problem with my cake was it was not that much brown as yours and it took 35 min in oven.
    Do I need to bake it for more minutes to turn it in brown color? Please guide.
    Thanks once again for your recipe now I can proudly say I can make a CAKE.. 🙂

  75. Hello all,
    I would like to direct those who are interested in baking to a really good website :
    There are a number of eggless recipes too.
    Everything which I have tried from this website came out simply wonderful. Just follow the recipe directions, even if you are a novice and you will not fail!!You simply have to try it!!!

  76. Hello Aunty,

    I tried this cake and it came out wonderfully except that the outer layer of the cake was maroon in colour. I dont know if I had preheated the oven for a long time. Can u please let me know how long I should preheat the oven? The inner part of the cake was fluffy and soft and tasty. Am only concerned about the outer layer now. Please help.

  79. Hello Aunty,
    I tried your recipe of cake yday and it turned out fabulous. I made a small change in it by using cooking oil instead of butter to save some fat calories.
    Thank u so much for ths simple and delicious recipe… loved by all..
    thanks & regards

  80. hi aunty,

    can i make this cake with regular milk(whole milk) instead of condensed milk. if so,
    please give me measurements for milk and sugar. Thank you.

  81. Hello aunty,
    You are too good. I tried your punjabi chole n gulabjam recepie n they turned out to be very good.
    Aunty I just wanted to know, how much condensed milk should i use if i have to measure using cup.

  82. hello,manjula aunty,
    please can u teach me simple eggless cake and egg cake.i also need simple sabzi curry.i mailed u before but i didn’t get reply.i hope this time i get reply from u.waiting for ur reply.thanking you.

    1. You can also Google “eggless cake” and get many replies. Aunty has already written here that she does not bake much.

      As for sabji curry, can you be more specific as to what you want? It’s too vague of a description. Sabji curry can be so many different dishes.

      Also, check through all of her vegetable recipes here on her site.

  83. hi manjula aunty,
    *i wanted to try this cake but i am not getting unsalted butter wat can i do…..
    *is condense milk same v call it (milk made), can i use milk made only…..

    1. If you can’t get unsalted butter, then just use regular butter with salt. Not that big of a difference.

      Nestle brand Milkmaid in India is the same as the sweetened condensed milk sold in the US, so yes they are interchangeable.

    1. It greatly depends on the type of oven you have. Most ovens have an indicator to tell you when it is pre-heated and has reached the desired temperature.

  84. Hi Manjulaji,

    I tried making this recipie…it came out so well…thanks for sharing this wonderful recipie
    with all of us. Also do teach us to prepare cakes & cookies without using a oven for those
    who don’t have one.


  85. Hi Manjulaji,
    I tried out the eggless pineapple cake today. I added all the ingredients you said. I baked it at 325 F for 25 minutes. At the end of 25 minutes, the cake was still sticky and not fluffy, so I baked it for another 5 min. I let it cool until the cake was warm to transfer it onto a plate, when I did this, the cake broke off into several pieces. I like to know where I could have gone wrong in these steps. Can you help me out?

  86. Hi Manjulaji,
    I tried out this cake yesterday. I added everything that you said except the butter. I wanted to make it low fat, so I added apple sauce instead of butter. The cake tasted good. But the texture of the cake was not spongy ( no holes). The cake was a lil sticky. I put the right amount of baking soda and baking powder too. What do you think could have been the reason for that?

    Thank you,

  87. Hello Manjula Ji,
    Your recipe looks awsome! My mother tried it today, only she put the over on 300 Celsius instead of Farenheit, we use Celsius here in Europe and we fergot that you work with Farenheit. Could you please next time tell us the degree’s and/or length/diameter in Metric volume also, so we don’t accidently burn the cake 🙂

    Thank you Manjula, you’re our hero!

    btw you remind me of my grandmother, only she is egyptian… And her cooking skills are also 5 stars 😀

  88. ur cake recipe is so simple n so good previously i have tried other eggless cake recipe but this one is just perfect n one more thing whenever i see ur videos…i just feel like that my mom is teaching me ….thanks a lot……

  89. Hi manjula ma’am…Thanks for such a nice recipe….I am very fond of cooking and like to try out new things. I want to make cakes but i don’t have an oven.

    Could u please guide me about how to bake cakes in microwave ? The microwave cooking % ge and time?

    1. Microwave cooking times are going to vary depending on the power of your microwave. Best to experiment. This is going to make you watch the first time through.
      I’d microwave on high until the batter starts releasing bubbles, then progressively lower the power level until it just under simmering. you really don’t want the batter to boil. Watch the batter and test it every few minutes for consistency/doneness. I’ve made custards in the microwave, but not cake. Not sure how it’ll work… let us know how it turns out.

  90. Namaste Auntyji,
    I tried the cake day before yesterday and came out awesome !!! We are Jains too, and so do not eat eggs.Hence there is limitation on baking.But I had canned pineapples in refridgerator since few days. The moment I saw your receipe I started to bake immediately. And my husband just loved it.( he doesen’t like sweet so much but the sugar content of your cake was perfect according to him).He carries one piece of the cake everyday to office to have in the late afternoon. 🙂

    Thank You so much Auntyji you made my day !!!

    Manasi Mahajan
