method

1. Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Line the base and sides of a cake tin with baking paper and grease lightly.
2. Beat the eggs and brown sugar in a bowl until pale. Add the rest of the ingredients, except the pineapple, and beat together. Stir in the pineapple pieces and mix.
3. Pour the cake batter into the prepared tin and bake for 55–65 minutes, or until well risen and fully cooked.
4. Beat all the ingredients for the icing in a bowl until smooth and thick. Check the cake is cooked by inserting a skewer into the centre. If the skewer comes out clean it is cooked. Leave to cool in the tin for 15 minutes, then turn onto a wire rack and leave to cool.
5. Spread the icing over the top and sides of the cake using a spatula. Enjoy!
