Pineapple Crumble

Heya Guys!

A number of you have been asking for this recipe for quite sometime! Well, here it is.

If any of you readers passed through Kianda School at some point in your life (like Cynthia and I) or one of its brother/sister schools, then you remember pineapple crumble being a staple dessert AND of course, so wonderfully yummy.

So we thought to ourselves: “Why not give the people a sweet, ridiculously easy recipe to satisfy nostalgia of life before they joined university with all it’s trials and tribulations?”

Try it out and let us know how it goes! Don’t forget to pair it with vanilla ice-cream. However, back in school we had it with custard. If you’re up for a custard recipe in the near future, hit us up. 🙂



  • 2 cups self rising flour
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • Half a ripe pineapple


1. In a bowl, add the flour and butter. Using the tips of your fingers, rub in the butter into the flour till it is well incorporated and the flour mixture feels like sand then stir in the nutmeg and sugar.

2. Preheat the oven at 180oc for 10 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, chop the pineapples into chunks. Cook them in a pan for 5 minutes until they soften and release their juice, stir in the ginger and cover to cook for another 3 minutes.

4. In a baking dish, place your cooked pineapple then layer the top with the crumble mixture.

5. Place in the top shelf of the oven and cook at 180oc for 20 minutes.

6. Serve hot with a scoop of ice cream or yoghurt.
