GETTING READY
1) Preheat oven to temperature of 350 degrees.
2) Grease 2 loose bottomed sandwich tins of 8-inches each. Use non-stick baking parchment to line the bases.

MAKING
3) Into a large bowl, add the margarine or butter, eggs, sugar, flour and baking powder. Beat well for about 2 minutes, till the ingredients have mixed well together.
4) Evenly divide the mixture between the prepared tins. With a plastic spatula or the back of a spoon, level the surface.
5) Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes, till the cakes are well risen and golden in color. The cakes-' tops should spring right back when lightly pressed with a finger.
6) Let the cakes cool for a few minutes in the tins. Around the edges, run a blunt or palette knife to loosen the cakes-' sides. Turn out onto a wire rack, take off the paper and cool completely.
7) With the jam, sandwich the two cooled cakes together. Sprinkle with caster sugar.
8) To make the frosting, in a bowl, beat together the sugar and butter till well mixed.
9) Add the nuts and pineapple and stir well. Spread the mixture all over the cake.
10) Under a preheated broiler, put the cake for about 5 minutes, till the top is golden brown.
11) If you wish to freeze the cake, flash freeze it first and then pack in a freezer bag. Seal, label and store in the freezer.

SERVING
12) To serve without freezing, place the cake on a decorative serving platter and serve as a dessert. If using frozen cake, first remove wrappings and thaw at room temperature for about 3 to 4 hours. Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled. Makes a good dessert.
