Easy Pancho Cake Recipe: This Pineapple Pancho Cake Recipe Will Impress

A pancho cake is a dome-shaped cake that's popular in Russia and Eastern Europe. This pineapple pancho cake recipe with sour cream frosting can be made easily at home. Cherries could be substituted for the pineapple and pecans or almonds for the walnuts. Get creative! 

Cuisine: Russian
Prep Time: 20 minutes plus 2 hours to chill
Cook Time: 45 minutes 
Total Time: 3 hours approximately 

Ingredients

Cream

Optional Garnishes

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Beat eggs and sugar with an electric mixer until pale in color, about 4 minutes. Add the butter and mix on low until combined. Add the milk and continue to mix until combined.
  2. In another bowl, combine the flour, cocoa flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Whisk to combine. 
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Stir well. 
  4. Line a round cake pan with parchment paper. Pour the batter into the pan. Bake in a preheated 300-degree F oven for about 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool the cake about 10 minutes then unmold onto a plate. Let the cake cool completely. 
  5. To make the cream, combine the sour cream and powdered sugar until a thick cream forms. Remove 1 cup of the mixture and set aside (this will be used to frost the cake). To the remaining cream, stir in the walnuts and pineapple.
  6. Cut the cake into pieces. Form half of the pieces on a serving platter in a round shape. Spread with half of the cream. Arrange a few of the cake pieces, then cream, then more cake pieces, to create a dome-shaped cake. 
  7. Frost the cake with the remaining 1 cup cream. If the cream reserved for frosting the cake is too thin for your liking, simply add more powdered sugar. 
  8. Decorate the top with chocolate sauce and/or chopped nuts, if desired. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
