This side dish, warm and sweet and easy, never fails to get me requests for the recipe. And because it’s made with ingredients you have in your pantry all the time, it’s a wonderful last-minute addition to just about any meal.
1 large can crushed pineapple with juice
1 T. cornstarch
1 T. sugar or the equivalent in sweetener
Preheat oven to 350º and spray a one-quart baking dish. Dump in the pineapple and juice, and then mix in the egg, cornstarch and sweetener, right there in the baking bowl. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake about 30 minutes, or until the center is set. Store leftovers in the fridge. Serves 4.
Kitchen Hint: For a little extra zing, add 1/3 C. dried cranberries and /or some shredded coconut!
