Really simple and yummy recipe
Just wanted to say this is good even when made with instant oats and powdered ginger - I also added a splash of Grand Mariner to the pineapple mixture and it was nice and fragrant.
I made this for guests and they loved it. The ginger shines but doesn't overwhelm the pineapple. My topping ended up perfectly too. It's all about incorporating the butter as much as possible with the flour and oats. You can read my full review at: http://bit.ly/vZ39u6
So simple and delicious. I've made this twice with no problems with the topping. I did make sure the topping was mixed really well. Once I was out of fresh ginger and used a little ground with fine results. This recipe made an even less than perfect pineapple (I think it was getting old and I wouldn't have served it just freshly cut up) taste wonderful.
Easy to make and yum. A great winter dessert. Vanilla ice cream a must. I also had some (not "a lot") of dry flour on my end product, but I think I just didn't get my butter distributed evenly enough. Kids LOVED it. I think I'll try with a little coconut in the topping next time as one other reviewer suggested. Jan 25: forgot to add: @profjane: is it possible you misread the recipe and used 2 1/4 cups flour rather than 2 1/4 oz of flour? I know on my first quick read through I did that and then I noticed that the cups were in brackets and the main amounts were by ounces. Just a thought.
AMAZING and so super simple!!! I tried using an organic pineapple, but it was picked too early - how do I know this? The magazine had a whole section on pineapple facts - wonderful article!!! Anyhow, highly recommend this recipe as it is an awesome addition to any menu or event!!!
This was a nice easy dessert accompanied with vanilla ice cream for Sunday dinner. I had no problem with the topping, the measurements were definitely correct. Could even add toasted chopped macadamia nuts or coconut to the topping next time.
I followed the recipe exactly and ended up with a lot of uncooked flour on the top instead of the browned crumble shown in the photo. I tried adding water to the mixture and tossing it in with the pineapple. Is the flour measurement correct?
