Arabian cakes are simple dishes that stand out for their spectacular taste and texture. This pineapple cake made using locally sourced fresh pineapple is very easy to cook. A special delicacy that is served during parties and important events, these cakes are unavoidable items in Arabic cuisine.
A traditional Arabic feast could be divided into three courses. The first course is lighter with fresh fruits and vegetable dishes. The main course is heavier and serves countless meat and fish dishes. The meal is ended with desserts, and cakes hold a special place in this course.
Cakes in myriad flavours and shapes would be served in the last course. The pineapple cake, meanwhile, is the easiest one to prepare. Check out the recipe.
