Pineapple Delight is filled with the sweet flavors of toffee and pineapple in a creamy topping. This dessert may not be the prettiest, but it sure tastes delicious.
I originally wanted this dessert to be a square, but plans changed after I baked it and went to cut into pieces. I realized it would be better served in a parfait dish because it was not the prettiest treat to cut into pieces.
I almost scrapped the whole thing until I took a bite. Then I realized that I had a winner. This Pineapple Delight is freakin’ delicious and definitely shareworthy.
Sometimes recipe fails can turn into recipe wins.
The graham cracker layer tastes like toffee – a flavor I adore. I love anything caramel/butterscotch/toffee. I think I like it even better than the creamy pineapple topping.
This is one dessert you’ll be wanting to make again and again.
How to Make Pineapple Delight
It has a few layers, but they are easy peasy to make.
Start by making the graham cracker crumb layer by stirring together graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. I typically use salted butter because it’s what I have at home. Press the mixture into an 8×8 inch baking pan and bake for 15 minutes at 300F.
While the graham cracker layer is baking, cream together butter and powdered sugar. Add eggs and mix until combined. Spread mixture on top of the cooked graham cracker crumb mixture. Bake for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, whip the whipping cream and fold in crushed pineapple. Spread mixture on top of cooled dessert in the baking pan.
You can try to cut them into squares if you like or do what I did and serve them messy in parfait dishes.

How much pineapple? 398ml is a little random for measuring
Stacie Vaughan says
It’s the size of the cans here in Canada. I would use a 12 oz can or 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups.
Brenda Schenck says
Pineapple comes in 2 sizes here in US…8oz & 20 oz cans…I would think the 20oz would work
I’m going to try this soon but double ingredients to do a 9×13” dish

Why does it come out runny like soup? I did the instructions to a T and it’s extremely runny.
Stacie Vaughan says
That shouldn’t happen. Did you drain the pineapple?
