Tinned pineapple isn’t used much these days, but it can still be worthwhile when fresh pineapple is out of season.  It’s quite sweet and that can make things with it in a bit too sweet – this pudding breaks that sweetness down with lemon juice though.  Haven’t tried it myself, but I think it could be a good family pudding.


No, this isn’t a recipe for just chocolate macaroons – it’s actually a chocolate dessert with macaroons on top.  It’s a new one to me. It’s cooked in individual souffle dishes with a chocolate crumb base, a rich chocolate/coffee sauce and topped with coconut macaroons.  Definitely one for the chocolate lovers.
