I absolutely adore pineapple, it is one of my most favourite fruits.

That sweet tangy flavour is just addictive.

This is my mom’s recipe for Pineapple Delight, one of my all time favourite recipes. I would often ask for this in lieu of birthday cake.

It’s super rich and sweet with just a wonderful combination of flavours between a cookie crust, rich buttercream filling, real whipped cream all topped off with the the tangy sweetness of pineapple. Swoon.

Pineapple Lush Vs. Pineapple Delight Vs. Pinapple Lasagna

A pineapple lush or pineapple lasagna is just another name for pineapple delight. There is no real difference.

There is, however, a huge difference between my recipe for Pinapple delight and the typical pineapple lush you will find out in the wild of the internets.

This is a vintage recipe that calls for real ingredients. So you will find here butter, real whipped cream and eggs.

It results in a rich and wonderful dessert that makes whipped topping desserts pale in comparison.

Ingredients for the Pineapple Lush Dessert

This no bake dessert is made with only a few simple ingredients:

Crumbs: Use graham cracker crumbs. Either make your own or buy them.

Butter: I use salted butter for this recipe in both the crust and the second layer.

Powdered Sugar: Plain old icing, powdered or confectioners’ sugar, depending on what you call it where you live.

Eggs: Use clean, fresh and refrigerated eggs. Read on for more information.

Cream: I use real whipping cream that I whip myself. You can certainly use whipped topping but in all my years I have never had it with anything but real whipping cream so cannot guarantee good results.

Pineapple: I’ve always used canned crushed pineapple with the juice drained. I am sure you could also finely chop up some fresh pineapple too.

Is it safe to eat Raw Eggs in this Pineapple Dessert?

Yes! As long as you take basic precautions, it can be mostly safe to eat raw eggs.

With eggs, there is always a small risk of Salmonella bacteria being present on the eggshell exterior. The risk of getting sick from this is minimal if you use fresh, refrigerated and clean eggs.

This pineapple delight dish should be either consumed immediately after preparing it or it should be stored safely in the refrigerator. It should never be left out to warm up.

This is because bacteria such as Salmonella need time to grow, and they need time to grow in the right conditions. This means it really does matter how quickly you eat the food containing raw eggs and whether or not it gets refrigerated properly.

People with vulnerabilities such as those with compromised immune systems – including pregnant women, and elderly people – should avoid foods that contain raw eggs.

If this is a concern for you, substitute the two raw eggs with the equivalent pasteurized egg products, which are safe for even vulnerable people to consume raw.
