How to make a quick gateau-style Pineapple Dessert

0
Your rating: None
When time is short, an impressive dessert can be made quickly using tinned pineapple and bought sponge flan cases.
What you'll need: 
425g tin pineapple rings.
300ml whipping cream.
3 medium sponge flan cases.
Cocktail cherries
1: 
Cut the ridges off the flan cases making three flat rounds of sponge cake. The left-over pieces can be frozen or stored for a short time in an airtight container and used in a trifle.
2: 
Drain pineapple and reserve four rings. Cut the remainder into small pieces.
3: 
Whip cream until stiff enough to stand in peaks. Spread a thin layer of cream over one of the sponge layers and set aside. This will be the top layer. Stir pineapple pieces into remaining cream.
4: 
Place one layer of sponge on a serving dish and cover with half the cream and pineapple mixture. Place another layer of sponge on top and cover with remaining cream.
5: 
Place the top layer in place and arrange the four pineapple rings on it. Dreain cocktail cherries on kitchen paper and place one in each ring.
Conclusion: 
This dessert is best assembled just before serving, but the sponge flans can be trimmed and the pineapple cut up a little in advance.
