There’s lots of different fruit dishes with a crumble-type topping, but I think this one is slightly different with its combination of tinned peaches and fresh pineapple. If you have the luxury of lots of fresh peaches you could use poached ones instead of tinned, that would definitely make it even better.
This is a very 70s dessert – one made with things you have in the cupboard. I only make dessert now when we have visitors, but Mum’s generation made one every night. She would have had tinned peaches, coconut, cornflakes, brown sugar, flour and canned cream, in the cupboard, so this was a good recipe to make at the end of her shopping week when fresh produce was running low.
