Let’s get started on this fun and tasty cake!


  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 800 ml (approximately 28 fl oz) milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 150g (about 5.2 oz) sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 40g (1.4 oz) unsalted butter
  • 270g (9.5 oz) puff pastry biscuits
  • 200g (7 oz) canned pineapple, drained
  • 30g (1 oz) shredded coconut
  • A baking mold, roughly 22 x 15 cm (8″ x 6″)


  1. Infuse Milk: Begin by warming the milk in a saucepan until it’s hot but not boiling. Add the lemon zest to the milk, then remove from heat and allow it to cool to room temperature.
  2. Prepare Custard: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, and flour until well combined and smooth.
  3. Cook the Custard: Transfer the egg mixture to a saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring continuously, until the mixture reaches a boil and thickens into a custard. Then, remove from heat and stir in the butter until it’s completely melted and integrated into the custard.
  4. Layer the Cake: In your chosen mold, start by laying down a layer of puff pastry biscuits. Spoon a layer of the custard over the biscuits. Add a layer of canned pineapple pieces. Repeat the layers until all ingredients are used, finishing with a layer of custard on top.
  5. Chill: Cover the mold and place it in the refrigerator to set for at least 2 hours.
  6. Garnish: Before serving, sprinkle the top of the cake with shredded coconut for a tropical finish.
  7. Serve: Once chilled and set, your Lemon and Pineapple Puff Pastry Cake is ready to be enjoyed. This cake combines the tanginess of lemon, the sweetness of pineapple, and the creamy texture of custard, all layered between flaky puff pastry biscuits.

Enjoy this beautiful and delicious cake that’s not only easy to prepare but also a delight to serve at any gathering!
