Pineapple Crumble on a Tuesday

Filed under: Random — by Mona S. @ 10:34 am

What do you do when you have so much to do and no willpower whatsoever to do any of it?

Make pineapple crumble, that’s right!

I had this can of pineapple chunks that kept asking to be used in something yummy every time I opened my kitchen cabinets. And so, today, I got online and found a couple crumble recipes and came up with my own, went ahead and made it.

It’s SO good. Perfect for a Tuesday when you have much to do and no willpower whatsoever to do it all πŸ˜‰


1 can pineapple chunks in syrup

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 tbsp powdered cinnamon

3 tbsp butter

2/3 cups flour

1/2 cup white sugar

3/4 tbsp honey


In a baking dish, pour a quarter of the syrup in the can and add the pineapple chunks. The dish should be just big enough to hold the pineapple chunks so they’re packed together. Add the vanilla essence and sprinkle a half tsp of cinnamon and set aside.

Heat the oven to 180 c and in a deep bowl, mix the flour, sugar, honey, the remaining 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and butter until it forms small doughy crumbs.

Spread the crumbs over the pineapple chunks in the baking dish and into the oven it goes.

Bake for 25-30 minutes until the top turns golden brown and the syrup starts to bubble.

Within minutes, your kitchen will smell like cinnamon heaven.

When ready, let the crumble cool for about 5-10 minutes before you give in to the temptation because otherwise you will sport a burned tongue for the rest of the day.

Dig in when still warm. I read that it tastes fab with some icecream but it didn’t last long enough for me to try.

Next time, then.
