This pineapple filling becomes nice and thick as it is prepared, and is very easy to apply to your cakes. We chose this as the pineapple filling for our delicious homemade Piña Colada Cake and it went perfectly with our coconut cake layers (plus a hint of rum). Yum! Enjoy the recipe:
- One 20 ounce can (567g) of crushed pineapple, undrained
- 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
- 2 Tablespoons (14g) cornstarch
- Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium heat. When the mixture begins to boil, stir constantly until it begins to thicken, approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Keep in mind that it will thicken even more as it cools. Cool completely in refrigerator before using.
Try it with our Piña Colada Cake! So delicious!
