Got a nice recipe in the post from a lady called Jane today. She bought a pineapple for her kids last week but they didn't fancy it much. And she couldn't eat it, seeing as pineapples give her migraines. So she baked a pineapple cake, adding a few glugs of one of our smoothies:

Fresh pineapple and innocent smoothie cake


Half a fresh pineapple, chopped into small bits
250ml of innocent pineapples, bananas and coconuts smoothie
450g mixed dried fruit
110g margarine
110g caster sugar
2 large eggs
225g self raising flour
225g plain flour
1 tsp mixed spice
half tsp bicarbonate of soda


1. Put the pineapple, smoothie, mixed fruit, margarine and sugar in a saucepan, heat until bubbling and then simmer for 3 minutes.
2. When the mixture is cold, mix it with all of the other ingredients.
3. Put the resulting cake mixture into two loaf tins and bake at 180C for an hour.
4. Make a cup of tea.
5. Time for tea and cake.

Thanks Jane.
