Crustless Pineapple Pie

Crustless Pineapple Pie

One of my biggest pet peeves concerning Pies are the making of the crusts. I like things easy, especially when I am in a hurry and this Crustless Pineapple Pie is ideal for any busy cook.

All you need is a couple of minutes to mix and pour the batter into the Pie dish and in it goes to the oven - usually I need to wait for the oven to pre-heat, that is how quick the ingredients are to mix up.

Take note that the Pineapple must be drained as best you can get it. I pour the Pineapple into a very fine, almost sieve-like, colander and press the liquid out as much as I can.  You can always keep the liquid, juice or syrup, to use in drinks or to flavor a batch of Pineapple muffins.

No additional Salt is needed as the Pancake mixture contains enough Salt. You can also use any Pancake Mix, store-bought or homemade, in this recipe. Both works very well, although I do have a favorite brand, Snowflake Easymix- Pancake Mixture, which I just about always have on hand.

Some of the Pineapple will drop down to the bottom, but the batter mixture keeps all the ingredients nicely together, making slicing a breeze - as long as you wait until the Pie has completely cooled !

Crustless Pineapple Pie


1 1/2 cup Milk
1/2 cup Sugar
3/4 cup Pancake Mix
1/4 cup Butter, melted
2 Eggs
1 t Vanilla Essence
2 cans (440g each) Crushed Pineapple, drained

Whipped Cream, to serve  (optional)


1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a deep oven pie dish with cooking oil.
2.) Combine the Milk, Sugar, Pancake Mix, Butter, Eggs and Vanilla Essence in a medium mixing bowl - beat until smooth - stir in the drained Pineapple.
3.) Pour into the prepared oven dish and bake 45 minutes - cover with aluminum foil {to prevent too much browning} , increase the oven heat to 200 deg C (400 deg F) - bake a further 10 minutes or until the center of the pie is set - remove from the oven and leave to cool and set completely.

Serve with whipped cream {if using}.

Linking up with these parties:


  1. I'm not a fan of making pie crusts either - they always look like a 5 yr old made them! :D This pie, though, I can do!!!

  2. What a delicious and easy pie! Pineapple is one of my favorite flavors!! OH YUM!!

  3. What size can of pineapple USA?

    1. As per Google : 440 grams canned fruit = 15.5 OZ {also sent you an e-mail - hope this helps}

  4. Hi Linda. How are you? Hope things have settled down for you. It was such a shame we didn't get a chance to catch up. You came all that way. I guess you can't help these things and I hope all is going well for you. Thanks for taking the time out to link up to my party. It is much appreciated. I'm featuring this one at tomorrow's party. Being in the sub tropics we've always got an abundance of fresh pineapples. I can't wait to make this. See you tomorrow!
