Pineapple Cupcake / Gluten Free Cake / Protein Rich Cake / Soyabean Flour Cake

Eggless gluten free pineapple cupcake with soyabean flour.
You can call it a protein rich or high protein cake. A perfect protein diet for your kids and you both. Soyabean flour made the cake super soft.

Soyabean flour is a rich source of proteins, iron, B vitamins and calcium.
It is said that consuming soybean helps to reduce the risk of many health related problems. And it gives the cake a lovely texture, colour, taste and flavour. Taste is better than wheat flour. So not only yummy its also a healthy treat.

Consumption of Soy products every few days, like soy beans, tofu and soya milk among others, will ensure an adequate intake of protein.

Our this week’s 138th #Foodiemonday bloghop theme is #Pinapple.
My contribution is this pineapple cupcake.

Delicious soft cake with the taste of pineapple. Didn’t use wheat flour in it. Try this cake made with soyabean flour, oats and condensed milk and enjoy the heavenly taste. You will love the taste of pineapple chunks in it.

You can also make pineapple upside down cake with this batter.




Soyabean flour tends to brown quickly so you have to make it at low heat. I have used vanilla essence in it but you can use pineapple essence. If you don’t have soyabean flour you can use any flour of your choice. I have used canned pineapple. If you have fresh pineapple you can use it.




Soyabean flour – 1 cup

Oats – 1/2 cup

Cornflour – 2 tablespoon

Baking powder – 1 teaspoon

Baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon

Condensed milk – 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoon

Oil – 1/2 cup

Milk – 1/4 cup

Apple cider vinegar – 1 tablespoon

Vanilla essence – 1 teaspoon

Pineapple juice – 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoon or as require

Chopped pineapple – 3/4 cup

Cherries as require




1. Preheat the oven at 170Β° for 10 minutes.

2. Grease the cupcake or muffin moulds or line with cupcake liners.

3. Mix vinegar with milk and keep aside. You can use any gluten free vinegar or fruit vinegar. Milk should be room temperature.

4. Chop the pineapple into small pieces.

Cut the cherries into half.

5. Grind the oats into fine powder.

6. In a bowl sift soyabean flour, oats powder, cornflour, baking powder and soda.

7. In a large bowl beat condensed milk, vinegar mixed milk, and oil. Mix well and add vanilla essence.

8. Now add the dry ingredients gradually. At first mix half of the flour, mix and then add remaining flour.

9. Add pineapple juice as require to make a pourable batter. You can use fresh pineapple juice or if you are using canned pineapple like me use the syrup.

10. Don’t over beat. Mix well and make a lump free batter.
Fold in chopped pineapple.

11. Fill the cupcake or muffin moulds with this batter. Fill the moulds 3/4.
Tap the moulds gently. Place half cherry on every cupcakes. I have made 12 cupcakes and a small cake with remaining batter.



12. Bake in preheated oven at 170Β° for 20 minutes.
Insert a toothpick in one of the cupcake. If its comes out clean, cakes are ready.

13. If not bake again at 160Β° for 5 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.

14. Let the cupcakes cool down.
Enjoy delicious, soft, moist, high protein, gluten free cupcakes.
Happy baking!!

Batter Up With Sujata

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!

  1. I started baking with gluten-free flours only recently and so far I have used buckwheat flour, rice flour, and coconut flour only. Using soybean flour is a protein-packed idea. Cupcakes looks so yummy.

  4. Cake with Soybean flour? I would not have thought of it. A fabulous way to make a cake protein rich. Of course, the pineapple and cherry make it delicious and fruity. Superb, Sujata.

  5. Great gluten free idea. However I think as people who will make this for others may not know you should mention that they need non-malt vinegar and specially prepped oats to keep it gluten free.

  6. Sujata I’ve never used soya flour in baking except for adding it to make multigrain flour. What a brilliant way to get family to eat more of the healthy rich in protein flour. Awesome share for the theme.
