I was looking for a quick and easy recipe to make in order to use up my fresh pineapple. This was amazing! Definitely a keeper. The only changes I made was using fresh pineapple, enough to cover the bottom of the dish, 1/2 cup of light brown sugar, 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar, and sprinkled a generous amount of ground cinnamon on top.

This was a great recipe to use up the pineapple that my boyfriend bought, promised he would eat and then of course, never did. :) I didn't know if it would be enough so I added some kiwis to it as well and it turned out tasting really good. The only thing I would have done differently (and should have followed the others' advice) is cut the butter in half because it was WAY too much and made the centre liquidy. All around great flavour though.
2 stars for helping me find a use for my fresh pineapple, but egg??? I ditched the topping recipe and topped it with brown sugar, rolled oats and cinnemon. It was awesome!
It was surprisingly good. I used one can crushed pineapple and one can pineapple tidbits. The topping was quite sweet which was actually a nice contrast with the pineapple.
Very good! The whole family loved it! I halved the butter though because I thought 1/2 c was too much...1/4 c worked just fine!
What an amazing dessert fresh out of the oven topped with some whipped cream. I made this to use up a fresh pineapple that was starting to look old. I had my doubts. I even made my husband try it first because I didn't think it would be any good...I was way off! In the past month I have made this 3 more times and have served it to company without complaints. Put your doubts aside and try this recipe!!
After spreading the pineapple in the baking dish, I combined the remaining ingredients and then evenly spooned little dollops of the dough over the pineapple. Total prep time was less than 10 minutes! In baking, the dough spread out and covered the pineapple beautifully with a crisp on the outside, chewy type dough that was delicious! I served it with vanilla ice cream and hubby took leftovers to work, ate it cold, no ice cream and told me he'd be happy if I made this one again! The tartness from the pineapple and the sweetness of the dough was a great combination.
This was very easy to make and a big hit. Put out cool whip to serve with it, but the guests thought it was great alone. A few people asked for the recipe.
This recipe was a hit at a July 4th picnic/potluck. I made the dessert according to the recipe, except that I substituted one fresh pineapple (I had one on hand, but one wasn't enough so I had to combine it with 28 oz. of canned). It was delish - everyone raved about it! Definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing it!
We just got back from Hawaii and had a family picnic to go to. We were still feeling the island spirit so we were looking for something that would travel well and be made with pineapple. This did it! The only things I changed were that I added shaved coconut to the topping mixture (and reduced flour by 1/4 cup in place of the coconut) and before I poured the butter on top I sprinkled chopped macadamia nuts for that extra Hawaiian flair. This was a hit! Will definitely make again, perhaps with some chunks of pineapple vs crushed. Thanks for the great recipe!!
Delicious! I used fresh pineapple cut in chunks. I halved the recipe and made in a loaf pan. It baked in 30 minutes. Excellent with a spoonful of cool whip!
Just tried the recipe and the language (smooth) for the topping threw me off a bit. There is nothing to liquify the mix but 1 egg. So to get it smooth through me off. Just popped this in the oven and I hope this turns out great. The mixture was thick and not smooth.
This was SO GOOD! I used 1 can of crushed pineapple and 1 can of pineapple chunks, reduced the butter to 1/4 cup and mixed the cinnamon right in with the rest of the topping ingredients. Mine only took about 20-25 minutes to cook. I served this warm with vanilla ice cream~DELICIOUS!!!! I will definately be making this simple, yummy recipe often! Thanks for sharing. :)
Nothing to write home about. Good idea though.Definitely called for too much butter and I've never used an egg in crisp toppping before. I would make pineapple crisp again but just use my regular crisp topping recipe.
Yummy! I used a whole fresh pineapple and half splenda, half brown sugar. Delish! I found that it didn't need to bake quite as long as the recipe calls for though.
Not real impressed....The egg was not enough to make the dry ingredients become smooth. Seemed like a lot of cinnamon. Easier and tastier to just use a cake mix to make a cobbler.
This is a great substitute for the Apple Crisp. I used fresh pineapple, and half the butter. It turned out great. You have to try the topping as it is in the recipe, egg and all.
This recipe didn't turn out for me at all. It was too bready and didn't have very good flavor. I think I'll stick to the usual upside down cake!
I would suggest spraying the pan with Pam first since the topping bakes on and is hard to clean off. I was a little unsure of the egg in the topping, and the idea of melting the butter and pouring on top instead of mixing it into the sugar and flour unmelted, as is usually the way to do a crisp, but this came out very well and very crunchy.
Thank you for sharing this great and easy recipe! It is just as delicious as my fave apple crisp but less laborious (i.e. no peeling or slicing apples)
This isn't knock-your-socks-off-good but I'm giving it five stars because it is really delicious and just so easy. My guests made lots of yummy sounds :). I did 1/2 cup dark and 1/2 cup light brown sugar; just 1/4 cup Earth Balance margarine; one can crushed pineapple and one can tidbits; and I went crazy with the cinnamon! Make sure you drain the pineapple really well!!
I think this was my fault as I used a fresh pineapple. The crisp was yum but the rest was not. I used 1/2 the butter as suggested but still it did not mix well with the pineapple. I love the idea, but for me did not come out well.
Excellent! I have been searching for a way to bake with fresh pineapple. All my muffins, cookies and cakes have crumbled - possibly because of the acidity? Anyways, a crisp is the perfect solution and this one is easy. I used self-rising flour instead of added baking powder and salt and I halved the butter and sugar because that suits my preferences. I think I'll experiment with adding some coconut and cashews for a truly tropical treat. Thanks for posting this recipe!
YUM!!! Followed the recipe exactly and WILL make again. I might add some vanilla or almond extract, just for kicks! Other than that, awesome! I served with vanilla frozen yogurt and it's gone, now! (Came out of the oven 15 minutes ago!!!)
"Smooth' is misleading here...'sandy' may be more appropriate when describing the mixed together topping. Be aware, it is not a liquid by any means. I used a combination of diced peaches, plums and cantaloupe for about the same amount as recommended for pineapple. Lovely and different. Everyone ate it up!
I have made this countless times this spring/summer. I've used only fresh cut-up pineapple, peaches, blueberries, mango, kiwi and a mix of fruits together. I have only received rave reviews and requests to bring it along. I thought the egg in the crisp was strange too, but I went with it and it's ALWAYS a hit. I sub brown sugar for brown granulated (organic) sugar, use less than called for and sometimes add honey or agave sugar (syrup). Lots of cinnamon too. My mother-in-law said I should rate it since it's fantastic.
VERY GOOD AND EASY TO MAKE! I USED FRESH PINEAPPLE SINCE WE LIVE IN HAWAII.
The end result was disappointing. One egg was not by any means enough to make the topping "smooth". It had a cement-like consistency and was almost too hard to chew. I used 3/4 cup sugar (still a little too sweet) and 1/4 butter. I also added one apple. I am glad this wasn't very expensive to make, because now is not the time to waste food.
I added an extra can of pineapple and also added 1/2 cup of rolled oats.
I added additional fruit, mandarin oranges and cherries. It was delicious.
I have always wondered why they always tell you to drain the juice out in pineapple recipes generally - that's where most of the flavour is! So, I am making this with the juice boiled down & then mixed with the melted butter.
This was my first attempt at a dessert and WOW it was amazing!!!! I can't wait for the leftovers lol
This was dessert on a cold, rainy night and it was a 10. Cut the butter down by half and the crunch came out excellent. I added brown sugar to the pineapple as another suggested and it gives the pineapple a nice texture, almost a bit of a chew. This with a big gob of vanilla ice cream on top is a home run! Excellent for a last minute dessert idea as it's all stuff in the pantry.
My kids LOVE pineapple! I used canned crushed pineapple and it was GREAT!! We often prepare it as a side dish to our dinners and they usually eat the leftovers as dessert!! I found this recipe as a subsitute for Apple Crisp!!
I made this and my husband ate almost the whole pan in one day!!!
this tastes amazing! few changes: i use 3-4 fresh pineapples, add some brown sugar to the pineapple, use 1/4 cup butter, and sprinkle cinnamon and white sugar generously on top before baking. Delish!
This was very good but not excellent. I found the topping to be absolutely delicious, but the pineapple portion of the cake was just okay. I think I would have preferred it to be more sweet. I think I'll try making this again with the pineapple in heavy syrup...it might make it more flavorful.
This was too sweet. If you like eating sugar then make it, if not, do not make it.
I mixed a little flaked coconut in with the pineapple, and left a little bit of brown sugar at the bottom of the pan. This turned out juicy, gooey and delicious!
absolutely amazing! best served hot with a scoop of ice cream.
Super easy! Super good!
My new "go to" dessert! I even made it in individual ramekins for a dinner party. One note is the original recipe says to combine the topping until smooth. With one egg and all of the dry ingredients, I don't know if you'll ever get something smooth. Mine turns into a crumbly mixture so I use all of the butter or else I don't think it would cook properly.
I was searching Christmas afternoon for a dessert,as I hadn't properly planned. I had some pineapple that needed to be eaten, so when I came across this, I figured why not! Well, I am so happy I did. This was the best crisp I have ever eaten!! As other reviewers remarked, the topping was a bit dry when mixing, so I added in some veg oil. It was crispy, even after being refrigerated. It was so delicious, I had to print the recipe out for the mil. Thanks for a keeper of a recipe.
Excellent dessert. I love oats so I added a layer of old fashioned oats on top of fruit and also mixed in oats to the batter mixer. I also used a little of the butter to help mix the batter instead of pouring all of it on top. I also used fresh pineapple cause I had it. Turned out fantastic!
Absolutely love it! The cinnamon and pineapple taste great together!!
this is an interesting recipe- at first-bite, i wasn't sure if i liked it or not, but it definitely grew on me and now im addicted! the bf liked it warm, but i preferred it cold the next day. will definitely make again!
This is absolutely delicious, Bea! It takes no time at all to prepare, and was better than we had expected. As another reviewer, I think the "smooth" descriptor of the crumb topping is a bit misleading. It came together kind of like the consistency of moist sand for me, and I sprinkled it over the pineapple. I did spray my 9x9 first, because I was a little weary of sticking. Next time I might use 1 can of crushed, and 1 can of tidbits, but otherwise there's no adjustment necessary for a quick and easy weekday dessert!
I used 1 whole fresh pineapple. This was awesome. Different then plain ol' apple crisp!! You don't need much it is pretty sweet.
i had an open can of crushed pineapple that need to be used. i added a little orange jucie and brown sugar to the pineapple in the pan. and i only used 1/4 melted butter, as others suggested. 40 mins would have been way to long for mine. it was nice and brown after only 20 mins
I decided to use half the amount of butter on top just to cut a few calories and if you're careful when you pour it over the crisp it'll cover. Also, I used one 20 oz can of crushed pineapple and half of a 20 oz can of chunked pineapple (chunks spread evenly). Personal preference. As well, this crisp is ridiculously tasty and if you like pineapple at all you will be hooked. As in, "I ate the whole pan by myself...Oops!" kinda hooked. So baker beware.
I thought this idea was great, but wanted more of just the "crisp". So I left out the egg and baking powder. Mixed all the ingredients (minus the pineapple) together till it was crumbs. Sprinkle over pineapple. Delicious! I added 1/4 cup rolled oats, also.
The topping was more cake like, not a crisp. Very disappointed in this recipe :(
I used about 3/4 cup light brown and 1/2 cup dark because I ran out of light. I only mixed dough, to which I directly added a few shakes of ground cinnamon, until about half of the flour was wet and there were a fair number of clumps. Baked 40 mins. Loved it. Will make again.
This was delicious! I used one fresh pineapple instead of the cans. In addition, I only used 1/4 c. of butter as other reviewers suggested. I also did not use an egg or baking powder for the topping and it still came out great!
This is fabulous! The second time I made it I added some oats to the topping and a pound of strawberries to the pineapple! Yummy! Next time I'm going to add rhubarb to the pineapple!
Not my cup of tea
I wouldn't know because the "pour melted butter " on after was not a separate step which it should be. Now I think I will have pineapple goop, but I'm sure it will still taste good so whatever. Will probably try this again but to those who contribute recipes, please keep steps that clearly stand alone separate.
This was delicious warm out of the oven, but we didn't like it cold. I served it with frozen whipped topping(still mostly frozen), it was good served like that. I would make this again if I had a can of crushed pineapple to use up, but probably wouldn't make a point to make it again.
Really good. I made a few changes, though. I used fresh pineapple, cut into chunks. I measured 20 oz which was just about one half of a pineapple. I halved the fruit (20 oz instead of 40), butter, and dry ingredients, but used one egg, and added 1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal to the crumble mixture. I baked this in a 6x6 dish for 40 minutes. This is a wonderfully springtime 'cobbler'. Very easy.
Made this exactly as written. Way too dry! Perhaps I drained the pineapple too well, but it was dry as was the topping. Taste is good, but will not make it again. Definitely needed some whipped cream on top to moisten it a bit. Ouch.
awesome recipe. What I did differently: added 1 cup of oats to the mixture and it gave more crunch to every bite :)
This was really easy, really good and loved by everyone! We were basically licking the pan clean!
Very Good, I used a fresh pineapple and 1/2 c brown/1/2 c white sugar. Minimally processed pineapple and drained. Was perfect, every one loved it. Super easy to make, this is a keeper.
This recipe was very simple to make, and my family liked it a lot. I'll make it again in the future and try some topping on it next time.
What a simple but delicious recipe. I have made several times and will be taking this to family 4th of July picnic. I use one fresh pineapple and 1 large can of crushed pineapple. I do cut back on the butter in topping but otherwise make as directed. I like to serve with cinnamon ice-cream. If you can't find it at local supermarket just buy a good quality vanilla, let soften at room temperature, then add a couple TBLS cinnamon or to taste and mix well. Then refreeze. Yummy dessert and simple to make.
I made it as directed, the topping didn't get smooth (no liquid, only one egg) I tried it anyway.... It smelled good, but it didn't taste good... my friends didn't like it either...
Quick and easy and tasted great. Wasn't too sure about the egg in the topping but it worked well. I also halved the butter and found that to be ample.
I made this recipe with fresh pineapples and boy was it delicious! The recipe is so simple, I made it again but substituted the pineapples with frozen mixed berries - delicious too!
This was interesting. I had fresh pineapple that I didn't know what to do with. It tasted wonderful but it wasn't what I was expecting. The kids loved it.
This recipe is perfect as written. So easy and tasty! Next time I won't drain my pineapple so much but leave just a little juice to mix with the butter. I used the drained juice to marinate chicken for skewers on the BBQ.
Very easy and quick!
Trying to make all that flour and sugar mixture smooth with just one egg seemed impossible to me so I added another egg. that made the batter easier to work with. It turned out great!
This was wonderful! My family is asking for it again this weekend already! I did cut down and just used 3 tbs of margarine. Didn't need any more than that. Thanks for sharing.
I saw a recently done picture of this and had to try it (it looked super good). It is good, a nice change from the traditional apple crisp and a hit with my husband the pineapple lover. We think its better served cold with ice cream instead of hot. thanks!
This was fab! I actually made it for my husband's birthday, looking for something that I could use fresh pineapple for (his favorite) that wasn't a pineapple upside-down cake. So I replaced the canned pineapple with a whole fresh cut pineapple I chopped in the food processor, and it turned out perfect! Easy and quick to make, excellent flavor and consistency. My husband loved it with whipped cream. Definitely a keeper!
Easy, yummy recipe! I think I'll stick to peach or apple crisp in the future though.
I thought this recipe was great! I bought a pineapple and didn't know what to do with it and this was the perfect way to treat it! I did add a couple different things like oats and white sugar on top to help absorb butter and make a sweet crust. I also topped it with ice cream, caramel, and praline pecans! YUMMO!!
Really delicious. I used fresh pineapple and added toasted walnuts to the topping.
Fantastic!! I made this with fresh pineapple...very good...will definitely make again!!
I had some fresh pineapple that I added to the canned . It was delicious.
Personally, I would have given it 4 stars because I didn't love the texture (probably because I'm more accustomed to the denser topping similar to an apple crisp with oats) but everyone I served it to raved about it! And these were family members who would be the most honest, not polite guests! Lol! The flavour was delicious
Loved it!! Have had lots of requests to make it again.
Very good dessert. Rich and buttery.
This was easy to make and very tasty! I too used fresh pineapple. I will definitely make again.
This was a quick and easy way to use up a fresh pineapple that I didn’t want to waste! My kids typically want fruit crisps over cobblers (with cinnamon oatmeal topping) so this was a little different for them, but loved by all! My only substitution was the fresh pineapple instead of canned, but I might try adding grated coconut to the pineapple next time. And maybe a little more cinnamon! Definitely a keeper!
This was great - I used fresh pineapple but didn't have enough so I mixed in so chopped up canned peaches and that was a great combination.
Anything pineapple usually works for me and this really works, I added some extra pineapple as a topping I threw on after baking to add just a bit more pineapple deliciousness to it. Thanks for the recipe.
Followed recipe w butter adjustment and it came out quite dry. Was fair overall.
This desert turned out Fantastic !!! I made it mostly by the directions, the few changes I made was to add about a tbsp of Almond extract, added chopped Pecans to the topping and added a bit of the pineapple juice to the topping along with divided the melted butter between the topping mixture itself and the rest directly on top of the topping ... also added more of the ground cinnamon in the mixture and also on top of the butter poured directly on top ... It was So good, not overly sweet at all !!!
I made this recipe because I had some fresh pineapple in my fridge. I also put some coconut with the pineapple and made it in a loaf baking pan. It tastes delicious I hope my boy friend loves it or at least enjoys. It’s an easy and quick recipe to make. I will be making ut for my mom next time.
This is delectable!! I will make it again many times I'm sure.
Pineapple, I love pineapple! I made this with one fresh pineapple. This was easy to make and tastes delicious. I already had everything In my cupboards to make this which made it so simple. Well except an egg but what crazy person doesn’t have eggs. I was actually at the store yesterday and thought to myself “hmm I should get eggs” but decided I would wait since we don’t eat eggs very often. But I did get me a pineapple because, well you know, I said it at the beginning of my review. I guess not getting eggs was a mistake because as I was checking out allrecipes.com I found this gem of a recipe. Luckily I have a non crazy neighbor that was able to provide the one measly egg needed for this recipe. No running to the store which was nice. Although running the store would have been a good idea so I could burn some of the calories I consumed eating this delicious dessert. Honestly though I’m not sure the egg was needed. Im thinking I could have just cut the butter in the flour/sugar mixture and it would have worked out. Eh regardless it was still good and I would make it as written again. Well Except maybe less butter. I think the butter could probably be reduced without anyone knowing the difference. I don’t know about you but I could do with fewer calories. I think this would be great with apples or peaches as well. Now I’m off to provide my lovely neighbor with a bowl of this deliciousness for making it possibly for me to enjoy this delightful dessert on my lunch break.
Easy to make. Tastes great. I added pineapple juice to flour mixture.
I added some oats and vanilla to the topping. Also, I mixed the butter and cinnamon into the topping instead of pouring/sprinkling it over the top. It's very good! Consistency is a cross between a crisp and a cobbler which I think was intended as crisps don't typically have egg in them. I will likely add coconut flakes next time too cause I love the flavor together. Fun recipe and a great way to have a pineapple dessert that's not as sweet as upside down cake. ??
Easy to make, tastes great and all the kids loved it!
great recipe! made my boyfriend's juice taste really yummy and sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet! XD RAWR
WOW! This was an amazing pineapple crisp. My whole family ate it up within two days! I am sure to make this again because it is easy and does not call for many ingredients. Thanks for this recipe!
