At our house, people would fight over the pineapple on an Easter or Christmas ham, until a friend suggested this recipe. It’s a favorite recipe, for the holidays or anytime, that is good tasting and relatively inexpensive to make:
- one can of crushed pineapple
- one can of chunked pineapple
- one can of pineapple rings
- 1 cup flour
- 3/4 cup brown sugar (packed), plus about 4 tablespoons for later
- 1/2 stick butter, chilled
- 1 tsp. cinnamon, plus more to taste
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick spray.
- Drain and reserve the juice from the crushed and chunk pineapple.
- Mix the crushed and chunk pineapple with the flour and brown sugar in large bowl. This mixture will be somewhat dry, so add the reserved juice a little at a time until it resembles a thick, lumpy milkshake.
- Add the cinnamon and mix thoroughly.
- Pour into the sprayed baking dish.
- Layer the pineapple rings on top of the mixture.
- Sprinkle the remaining brown sugar on top of the rings.
- Slice the chilled butter into slices, and arrange them on the pineapple rings.
- Season with cinnamon on top.
- Add more of the reserved pineapple juice until it is barely up to the level of the pineapple rings.
- Bake for 45 minutes, or until the top is nicely browned.
You may need to add or subtract some of the pineapple juice depending on how juicy the fruit is. You can add more flour to get a more “cake-like” consistency, but you will probably need a deeper or larger baking dish. This is great to transport to family events and can be served cold or hot. I warmed it up on the grill once and it was awesome. Good luck!
