This recipe was always good anytime of the day - breakfast-lunch or dinner- My kids loved it and it was a great dessert to serve guests. I liked that it was so easy to make- even though it seems hard. Great recipe for first timers to make a great presentation at the dinner table or potluck or at next gathering of friends or relatives.

How to Make Pineapple Dessert

Step-by-Step

  • 1In your large mixer bowl, cream together butter, coconut dry pudding mix and cinnamon until fluffy.
    Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
    In another bowl combine milk, undrained pineapple, coconut (and sometimes I add 1/2 c. golden raisins too) and almond extract.
    By hand hand, blend milk mixture into creamed mixture- mixture will look curdled, it should.
    Fold in croissant pieces.
    Pour into an ungreased 2 quart casserole of 9-inch square baking dish. Sprinkle top with cinnamon sugar if desired.
    Place casserole in a larger shallow pan on oven rack. Pour hot water into larger pan to depth of 1-inch.
    Bake in 325^ oven for one hour and 15 minutes for the casserole and about one hour for square dish or until knife inserted off center comes out clean.
  • 2Note:
    Serve with butter rum sauce , if desired.
