Moist Pineapple Poke Bars

With A Blast: Moist Pineapple POKE Bars  - quick & chewy delicious!    #desserts #bars #pineapple #pokecake #partysnacks #gooey

These bars are extremely moist and dense !  With only a few ingredients which you throw together, mix and bake - this is the perfect last minute dessert or sweet treat.

We had this cold as is, and with thin custard. If you want to serve it warm, add some ice-cream or whipped cream on the side.

This is another one of those recipes which one just can't stop eating until it's all gone !  The sauce has a slight caramel taste which reminds me of caramel condensed milk. Absolutely delicious!


16 - 20 Bars


2 cups Self-Raising Flour
2 cups Sugar
2 Eggs
1 TB Vanilla
1 can (440g) Crushed Pineapple


1 can (380g) Evaporated Milk
1/3 cup Butter
1/2 cup Sugar

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a 20 x 20cm oven dish with cooking oil.
2.) Place all the ingredients for the Batter in a medium mixing bowl - mix with a fork until combined {with a beating action} - pour into the prepared oven dish - bake 35 - 40 minutes until done and golden brown on top.
3.) Make the Sauce a few minutes before the cake must be removed from the oven - place all Sauce ingredients in a small saucepan - bring to the boil and turn down the heat - simmer 5 minutes.
4.) Remove the cake from the oven - poke holes all over - pour the steaming hot Sauce over and let stand.

Cool completely and cut into bars - serve as is, or with custard, whipped cream or ice-cream.  {these bars cut perfectly and is easy to remove from the oven dish}

Hope you enjoy today's recipe !

Till later,

With A Blast
