Pineapple Delight

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.

    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.

    You can try to cut them into squares if you like or do what I did and serve them messy in parfait dishes.

    1. How much pineapple? 398ml is a little random for measuring

      1. 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.

        1. 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

    2. Bevin Boyce says:

      1142 calories per serving?

    3. Kaylin Grego says:

      Why does it come out runny like soup? I did the instructions to a T and it’s extremely runny.

        1. Jackie Spears says:

          I had the same problem with the powdered sugar mixture. It was before putting on the pineapple topping. While baking, the top had formed a nice layer but when I went to take it out, it was still so liquidy that the top rolled and cracked like ice breaking over waves. My butter may have been too soft or the size of the eggs? I used large.

          1. Kathryn Matousek says:

            Mine did the same thing. And after it cooled the Graham cracker crust was more like a paste. It didn’t taste bad, but aesthetics are important, too. I think increase the graham cracker crumb measurement to at least 1.5 cups, if not 2. I think the whipping cream needs a sweetener, as well.

    4. Alice Yewchyn says:

      This was amazingly delicious.
      I used a pretzel base instead of graham crackers . Yummy.

    5. Would other fruit work as well? Mainly thinking about substituting strawberries.

    6. Linda newland says:

      How long will I be whipping the whipping cream how stiff should it be before I fold in my pineapple

      1. I’d do till stiff peaks, but if you did soft peaks that would be ok too. It’s a forgiving recipe.
