Eggless Pineapple N Ricotta Cheese Cake

One of the benefits of pineapple is that it helps to build healthy bones. Pineapples are rich in manganese, a trace mineral that is needed for your body to build bone and connective tissues. The benefits of pineapple when you have a cold or cough are the same as the benefits of orange juice, but there is an additional benefit of pineapple. Bromelain, which is found in pineapples, has been found to help suppress coughs and loosen mucus. The obvious benefits of pineapple are all the vitamins and minerals the fruit is loaded with. Its nutrients include calcium, potassium, fiber, and vitamin C. In addition it is low in fat and cholesterol...It is regulates the gland and found to be helpful in cases of goiter(enlargement of the thyroid gland).Fresh pineapple juice is also used in removing intestinal worms.Fresh pineapple juice has been used to combat diptheria and other infections of the throat or other parts of the body...i bought a pineapple n prepared juice with it, there were few pineapple slices left in fridge n a box of ricotta cheese, none want to eat the pineapple slices for salad, so i just mixed both to prepare as cake with egg replacer powder and cornmeal...This eggless pineapple and ricotta cheese cake goes to Egg Replacement Event - Egg Replacer Powder by Madhuram of Eggless Cooking...

That's a very good and interesting recipe Priya. I see that you have become a cornmeal fan. I love ricotta cheese too, it's so versatile.

Great recipe, but where do you get egg replacer powder in India. Will a flax seed + water mixture work cause that is an egg replacer.
