Taiwanese Pineapple Cakes are among Taiwan's best food souvenirs. Whenever my buddies and family return from a vacation to Taiwan, likely to unwritten rule that you need to restore a box of Taiwanese goodies like Pineapple Cakes. (Okay, maybe that's just my unwritten rule.)

Sometimes known as Pineapple Tarts or Pineapple Shortbread, they taste amazing when offered slightly warm and combined with a mug of herbal tea. Within this recipe video tutorial I'll demonstrate steps to make this these scrumptious Pineapple Cakes in your own home.

Remarkably, these bankruptcies are not too hard to create if you possess the right equipment just like a stand mixer and also the baking supplies. I do not think I possibly could mix these elements manually without really getting a leg workout, plus I would not enjoy making these just as much.

I make my pineapple cake filling from 100% pineapples, but oftentimes the bakeries in Taiwan uses winter melon rather to reduce costs. Fortunately, pineapples aren't very costly in america. (Besides, when we used winter melon, I'd be enticed to them winter melon cakes.)

I suggest using canned crushed pineapples because they provide you with the perfect quantity of texture with this pastry filling, and they have been pre-crushed. If you choose to use fresh pineapple or sliced canned pineapple, you will have to either carefully chop or make use of a mixer or blender.
