Fresh pineapple crumble
April 12, 2012 • Category: Dessert
Yet another dessert inspired by Femme Actuelle of this week, streamlined to make it faster. A bite of this buttery crumble is offset by the tangy/sweet/mellow pineapple and banana slice. Not too shabby with a dollop of cream either.
INGREDIENTS: 8 servings
- 100 g. of whole-wheat flour (can use regular white all-purpose)
- 125 g. of unsalted butter
- 60 g. of grated coconut
- 75 g. of sugar (brown or raw best)
- 40 g. of almond flour (can omit)
- 1/4 cup of grape molasses or honey (optional)
- 1/3 cup of dark rum (optional)
- 1 pineapple
- 2 bananas
- Whipped cream in a can or topping or vanilla ice-cream (optional)
METHOD: Preheat the oven to 375F.
- Place the flour, almond flour, sugar, and coconut in the mixer or food processor bowl. Mix for a few seconds till combined. Add the butter (previously cut in small chunks) and grape molasses or honey and process till the mixture hold together. Pat into a greased and floured 9X13 pan. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and set aside. Crumble the mixture with a couple of forks.
- Peel and cut the pineapple into small bite-size chunks. Cut the bananas into slices. Mix the two and set aside. With your fingers, cut the crumble into crumbs. To assemble the dessert, place a cup of pineapple and banana in each bowl, add the crumble and bake for a few minutes in the oven till browned. Serve warm with some cream or vanilla ice-cream.
NOTE: In the Femme Actuelle version, the fruits are first cooked briefly over the stove in a little butter and sugar till slightly caramelized, then 1/2 cup of dark rum is poured over the fruit mixture and flambéed; then the recipe is the same as step 2.

I go NUTS for pineapple this time of year: Must be because it looks like the sun, which we’ve only recently started getting any of again. I also love a crumble, so you’ve put together a real winner with this one!

Mmmm Joumana, this is wonderful! I have so been meaning to make a crumble for ages and may take bits and pieces of your recipe as I so love the flavors – the coconut and almond flour are perfect to add extra crunch and flavor. Love pineapple but one rarely sees it in a dessert like this. Perfect!
