The taste is wonderful. I did use canned pineapple and it turned out well. I put it between a recipe on this site - Rave Review Coconut Cake - and it looks fantastic. I will use this on a lot of cakes that I bake that requires a filling. Read More

To me this was a good starting point. The texture is really nice. But the recipe as written is all sweet and not enough tart... really cloying and not a very bright flavor. If I didn't know it was a pineapple filling I'd have to take a second to figure out the flavor; I imagine that when I use it to fill my cake the flavor will get kind of "lost" because it's so dull. I added 1 tbsp. lemon juice to the filling which helped a little. I usually make a pineapple filling with nearly-pureed pineapple and I think the next time I make this I'll treat the pineapple this way instead of just chopping it. I'll also cut the sugar in half. And definitely use lemon juice maybe as much as 2 tbsp. Read More

I used this filling for my pineapple filled pineapple buttercream cupcakes. Delish!! I changed the amount of butter to 2 Tablespoons. Also I used 1 1/2 cups of pineapple and pineapple juice. Be sure to beat the egg & pineapple juice before adding the pineapple pieces. Then add the whole thing to pot. Stir frequently or you'll get strings of egg. Read More

Excellent! I made this the night before and the next day I mixed it with about 1/2 C fresh whipped cream. I used it for the filling in a Pineapple Chiffon cake. This could be varied with just about any kind of fruit. What a great recipe! Read More

I doubled this last night and when it was done I put in in a buttered glass dish and made it into a crisp (using the topping from Apple Crisp II). The only change I made was adding only half the amount of juice because that was all I had. It was really yummy just a bit too sweet. I will probably add only 1/2 the amount of sugar next time. Great recipe! Read More

This filling came out very good. A bit on the sweet side though. I used canned pineapple and found it worked out fine. Read More
