Pineapple crumble
1 Pineapple
Generous amount of sugar
150g plain flour
Pinch of salt
85g unrefined brown sugar
100g unsalted butter, cubed at room temperature
Knob of butter for greasing

First, skinned the pineapple and chop into cubes. Soak them in salted water, this is to avoid the pineapple turning brown. soaked them for ten odd minutes, aside.

Put the flour, salt, sugar and butter in a mixing bowl. Start rubbing the butter with the flour together, continue this until you get a sand like texture. This shows when the crumble are ready.

Next, drained all the salted water in a colander, remove any excess water by shaking it. Pour into the baking dish. sprinkle generous amount of sugar, like 1-2 table spoons on top of the pineapples, toss it all over so they are coated with the sugar. Next, cover the pineapple with the crumbles.

Bake at 220C for 20-30 minutes or until the syrup in the crumble start bubbling. When ready, serve with vanilla icecream or like me, with refreshing mint icecream with chocolate chip.
