Hi everyone, welcome back to the kitchen Continuing on with our Easter week celebration. I give you pineapple bake This is a really delicious recipe that I grew up eating It is directly from my mother’s recipe box And even though we did a video of this many years ago we decided to update it for you today Because it’s just as delicious now as it was then as it was when I was a child So let’s go see how this all comes together Today we’re gonna make a pineapple bake I did a video of this nine years ago, and it’s time to Redo it pineapple bake is a family favorite Once again perfect for your Easter table and in our effort to bring you budget-friendly Easter dishes that you can put before your family without spending a ton of money this year I decided that we were gonna remake a couple of our old family favorites, even though we made them so many years ago It’s always good to update them and make a better video for you guys Pineapple bake is a family favorite. My mom made it while she was alive As long as I can remember ever since I was a really small kid This is just a really delicious custardy baked with bread and eggs crushed pineapple and mini marshmallows It’s super delicious and it goes great next to roasted. Ham and We used to have this every single Easter without fail. Sometimes she would make it special for a potluck or something We were going to but that’s really the extent of it. It really could substitute as a dessert or even a brunch item It’s fabulous for brunch. It’s kind of like a french toast bake only with pineapple in it and There are a lot of directions you can go with this. I’m gonna just make you one single recipe My mom always did a double and made it into nine by 13 pan But what you’re gonna need is four cups of either white bread or in this case I had some brioche hamburger buns leftover So I just cubed them up and until I had four cups worth you need one 20 ounce can of crushed pineapple You don’t have to squeeze it dry in my old video I told you to take all the liquid out But there’s really not that much liquid in here and if you take all the liquid away You lose a lot of the pineapple leaf flavor So I’m gonna just tell you to drain off what comes out before you take the lid off and just tip it over the sink or Into a cup and enjoy that about a quarter of a cup comes out and then just leave it like that you’re gonna need a stick of butter or a half a cup melted for eggs a half a cup of granulated sugar and then everybody’s favorite mini marshmallows This is 2 cups worth so I’m just gonna start building this I’m gonna move my pan of bread off to the side because we’re gonna actually Take care of those in just a minute. So what you want to do is crack your eggs into a bowl And just give them a little bit of a whisk now I’m gonna add my granulated sugar I’m gonna add the pineapple get that blended in there really well All right, go ahead and add your butter in there as well. And now we’re gonna pop all the bread in here Give it a good stir and just like french toast. You kind of want that bread to get in there and Soak up all that Delicious custard that you’ve made even though there’s no milk here It’s still custard because we’ve added liquid to eggs and it’s gonna be fabulous. I’m really looking forward to this So we even have this in a long time For those of you who might not know my mother passed away on Valentine’s Day And so I’m kind of revisiting a lot of the things that she used to make growing up I’m gonna add in all of the marshmallows now and you can just give that a good stir as well and into our pan I’m just gonna go ahead and give this a quick spray with the coconut oil and I’m going to pour our Custardy mixture into the pan. Let’s get it all in there spread it out evenly we’re gonna bake this in a 350 oven for about 40 minutes or until it’s nice and brown and toasty and Everything is set up. I’ll bring you back when it’s ready to enjoy. Well. There you have it Our pineapple bake has baked all the way it took 40 minutes I allowed it to cool on top of the stove for just about 10 minutes before we cut to it and it is Absolutely. Perfect.
