Summer Dessert: Pineapple Snow Cake

Updated on January 17, 2015

No Bake Snow Cake

This is a favorite summer recipe given to me by my husband's late aunt. Ideal for summer as it has no baking and cooking and is so easy!

There is no flour and only has six ingredients including much easier could it get? I've heard it described as an uncooked pavolva.

As I am writing this lens during our winter the photos have been taken from and are the closest I can get without actually making the dessert myself. Yes, I have made it several times but never photographed it.

First Step

Start by placing a buttered plate in the fridge.


  • 1 Egg white
  • 1/2 Cup of sugar
  • 12 oz Tin of pineapple
  • 1 Good Dessertspoon of Gelatine
  • 1 Tablespoon cold water
  • 1/2 Cup hot water
  • Whipped cream


  1. Beat the egg white and sugar together for a few seconds.
  2. Dissolve Gelatine in cold water. Add 1/2 cup hot water and the juice from the tin of pineapple. Beat all ingredients together for at least 15 minutes and put in fridge on the prepared plate...piled similar to a pavlova.
  3. Decorate with whipped cream and pineapple pieces as desired.

This is the pineapple I use in this recipe. Personally I'm not a great fan of pineapple but in the Snow Cake it is subtle and a great part of the success of the cake. You will need the juice from the pineapple so I see using tinned pineapple as best. The pineapple juice together with the egg and sugar are just right, even for me!


I have never tried it with pears and think it could be a bit sweet for my taste. What do you think?

Do you think you would try this recipe with pears?

Luminarc is the oldest and most famous brand of the French glass manufacturer, Arc. The glass is of high quality and very resilient and can be used in the dishwasher. I would recommend placing glassware in the top section of the dishwasher as I believe this is the gentlest part of the machine.

Apart from glasses I also have a couple of Luminarc plates and can vouch for their durability. These plates are smooth on the surface with the pattern embossed underneath so are perfectly hygienic. As the glass is clear it will match any dining decor.
