Unusual Cake Recipes

Sometimes you want to surprise your family and friends with something truly excellent. Why not make a homemade dessert? To simplify the task, we’ve picked for you 2 unusual cake recipes. These are so tasty, you’ll get hungry just by looking at them.

The volcano cake is made very quickly. You just need to prepare the dough and cream, and then combine the two mixtures. Dessert is called so because of the way it looks, but we are ready for such a volcano eruption! Juicy pineapple cake looks enchanting and it is just as easy to prepare. The treat perfectly combines 2 creams and a special sourness of pineapple.

Homemade Pineapple Cake

For the sponge cake you will need:

  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups (400 g) sugar
  • 3 ¾ cups (480 g) flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • vanilla sugar to taste

For the cream you will need:

  • 1 ⅓ lb (600 g) sour cream
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 cups (400 g) sugar
  • 1 pinch citric acid
  • 1 pineapple

For decoration you will need:

  • 8 fresh pineapple slices
  • 2 tsp red food coloring or blood orange juice


  1. For the sponge cake beat the eggs with sugar: 1 egg and 1 cup (200 g) of sugar are needed for a sponge cake. Sift half of the flour into each mixture and add vanilla sugar. Thoroughly mix. Then add baking powder.
  2. Bake sponge cake one at a time at 350 °F (180 °C) for half an hour. Check with a toothpick if cooked through.
  3. Peel the pineapple and cut it into thin slices. Place 8 slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle the food coloring in the center of the slices.
  4. Preheat the oven to 300 °F (150 °C), put pineapples in it, reduce the temperature to 225 °F (100 °C) and bake for 1 hour. This will be the future cake decoration.
  5. While the second sponge cake is being baked, make the cream. To do this, beat sour cream with 1 cup (200 g) of sugar. Cut the remaining pineapple into cubes and add to the cream.
  6. Cut each sponge cake into 2 parts, grease each one with generous amount of sour cream and cover with the next sponge cake.
  7. For the cream, make a Swiss meringue out of beaten egg whites and citric acid. Add sugar and beat again. Place the mixture over a double boiler and simmer for another 15 minutes, constantly beating.
  8. Spread the meringue throughout the cake. Form flowers from the baked pineapple slices and decorate the dessert with them.

These unusual cake recipes definitely deserve your attention. Think twice before choosing another store-bought dessert for your holiday. You can make such a wonderful treat at home. Good luck!


Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
