  3. Line a 20 cm baking tray with baking paper, then transfer the dough and bake it in preheated oven at 180° C for about 50 minutes. After this time, check if the cake is ready with a toothpick by sticking it in the center of the cake. If the toothpick is clean then the cake is ready otherwise it needs a few more minutes of cooking. Before stuffing the cake let it cool down completely.

  5. Divide the cake into 2 parts. Spread the first part with half of the frosting, cover with the second piece of cake. Finally cover the top piece with the remaining frosting then decorate with a few slices of pineapple and a spinkle of coriander powder.
