6 / 99 Tempting Pineapple Recipes

Ninety-nine Tempting Pineapple Treats made with Crushed and Grated Hawaiian Pineapple, 1925 Association of Hawaiian Pineapple Canners

“We want to buy 100 of them – the very best recipes that the Women of America have discovered for serving Hawaii’s ‘King of fruits’. You may have the one that we want.”

Hot Desserts: Baked Apples and Pineapple   
(Recipe contributed by Helen Louise Johnson)
Pare and core 6 large apples.
Mix ¾ cup of Crushed or Grated Hawaiian Pineapple with ¼ cup sugar, 1 tblspn melted butter and ¼ cup chopped raisins.
Fill the centers of the apples with this mixture and arrange in a shallow baking dish.
To the remainder of the mixture add 1 tblspn lemon juice and ½ cup water and pour around the apples.
Bake until tender but not until they lose their shape, basting frequently with the liquid in the pan.

Pies and Tarts: Pineapple Turnovers
Roll pastry thin, and cut into 10cm squares.
Thoroughly drain the sirup from 1 cup of Crushed or Grated Hawaiian Pineapple. On the center of each square place a tablespoon of the drained pineapple and 1 tspn each of sugar and butter.
Moisten the edges of the pastry and fold together in the form of triangles, pressing the edges firmly together.
 Fry until brown in deep hot fat, rain on brown paper, sprinkle with powdered sugar an serve immediately.

Hot Desserts: Pineapple Puffs  

Cream 1/3 cup fat, add 1 cup sugar gradually, creaming well together. Add 2 beaten eggs. Mix and sift 2 tspn baking powder, 1 ¾ cups flour and ¼ tspn salt. Add alternately with ½ cup Crushed or Grated Hawaiian Pineapple to the creamed mixture. Pour into greased and floured muffin pans and bake 25 to 30 minutes in a moderate oven.
Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar or with a hot pudding sauce.

Cakes, Cake Fillings, Frostings and Sauces: Pineapple Roll 

Add ¼ cup sugar to 1 cup well-drained Crushed or Grated Hawaiian Pineapple, heat until the sugar melts and set aside while cake is being made. Mix and sift 1 1/3 cups flour, ¼ tspn salt, 1 cup sugar and 2 tspn baking powder; add 2 beaten eggs, stirring constantly, and ¼ cup hot water. Beat until smooth and spread in a large greased pan. Bake in a moderate oven about 12 minutes.

Turn out onto a paper thickly sprinkled with powdered sugar and spread with the pineapple. Trim off the crusty edges with a sharp knife and roll up like a jelly roll. A strip of paper or cloth may be pinned around it until it cools to keep it in shape. Serve cut in slices.
Make sure that you don’t overcook the cake or you won’t be able to roll it up!

Pineapple Pancakes    

Mix and sift 2 cups flour, ½ tspn salt and 4 tspn baking powder.
Add 1 beaten egg, mixed with 1¼ cups milk, 1 cup Crushed or Grated Hawaiian Pineapple and 1 tblsp melted fat.
Bake on a hot greased griddle.

Delicious with bacon and maple syrup!

Pineapple Cookies    

Beat 1 egg, add ½ cup sugar slowly, ¼ cup chopped California walnuts, ½ cup thoroughly drained Crushed or Grated Hawaiian Pineapple and ½ cup flour that has been mixed and sifted with ¼ tspn salt and 2 tspn baking powder.
Drop by spoonfuls on an inverted greased pan and bake in a moderate oven 20 to 30 minutes.

In the future I will add ½ tspn cinnamon to the dry ingredients.

All delicious! Anne
