    Preheat your oven to 200C or 180 fan forced.

    Open the can of pineapples and arrange pineapples along the base of a 25cm cake tin. Next pour in 5 tablespoons of syrup or just enough to coat all of the base.

    To serve place on a cake stand and dust liberally with icing sugar. I like to serve mine with double cream or ice cream just for that little extra indulgence.

    In a large bowl place 200g Caster sugar, S.R flour, eggs, baking powder, vanilla, butter, salt and orange zest and stir with a wooden spoon until combined. (If there are lumps in your batter you can then use a whisk to finish combining all your ingredients).
