*First things first, preheat the oven at 180C. Simultaneously, line your cake tin with parchment paper.
*Next, take a bowl and add sugar, oil. Whisk the two ingredients at high speed. Add vanilla essence and curd. Whisk again. Once done, add lemon juice, milk and give it a final mix.
*Take another bowl and place a large sieve over it. Sift the all-purpose flour and baking powder. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together and bake at 180C for 30 minutes.
*While it is baking, prepare the compote. Take a saucepan and add pineapple chunks, sugar and water. Cook over low medium heat and until the pineapple reduces and looks like jam. Once the cake is ready, demould and cut it into two layers.
