Pineapple Crumble Recipe - Crumble With A Twist


I am lucky enough to have a lot of vivid childhood memories from quite a young age. I remember lots about life as a child from as young as 3. Family times, my dad putting me to bed and always falling asleep beside me before I did, making mud pies in the garden, climbing trees (I was quite the tom boy) and going to nursery.

I remember the cook at my nursery and the amazing meal times we had at lunch. In my head I remember 3 course gourmet meals every day - but perhaps that may be distorted reality. The one dish I clearly remember is her amazing Pineapple Crumble.

For years, when nursery days were well and truly behind me I would remember this pineapple crumble concoction and want that taste again. However this was not a traditional crumble recipe so any other version I would have would never hit the spot. The crumble I remembered had almost a flapjack consistency top incorporating whole rolled oats and coconut.

As soon as I was able, I developed my own recipe for this and numerous attempts got it just right. The caramelisation of the pineapple, the taste of cinnamon, and the crunchy, flapjack like top -  it all came together. This is one of my favourite desserts to make particularly on colder evenings. I can tell it's going to be a family favourite for many years to come.

This is, as the title suggests crumble with a twist. It's not made the traditional way by rubbing in the butter to the flour mixture and therefore the top of the pudding is a bit more put together. This is what creates top chewy but crunchy top that I had always remembered and goes so well with the flavour of the pineapple.


I normally serve this with ice cream or frozen vanilla yoghurt however this week I found a tub in the freezer section of my local Sainsbury's that is not quite ice cream and not quite frozen yoghurt but made of coconut milk. Coconut and pineapple are a match made in heaven for me and this was no exception when adding to my freshly made pudding.
