Peggy’s Pineapple Pudding is so Delicious

by Alli

When I took my first bite of Peggy’s Pineapple Pudding, I knew I had to have the recipe. It was on a dessert bar that Peggy and her family hosted to bring awareness to a missions trip that her daughter and husband will be taking part in soon. For me, this Pineapple Pudding was love at first bite.

I’ve known Peggy for quite a while. She is an incredibly sweet woman who attends church with us. Peggy is married to an amazing guy and is a mom to two beautiful girls and grandmother to two handsome boys. And she’s a great cook.

Peggy’s Honey Bun Cake is the best I’ve ever tasted. It’s so moist and delicious. I was over-the-moon happy when she baked a Honey Bun Cake for my family last Sunday. It was so delicious. I had to send the leftovers (not much) home with my daughter or I would have eaten it all.

But, today, it’s all about Peggy’s creamy and scrumptious Pineapple Pudding. This pudding is amazing! It’s kinda like banana pudding but totally different in taste. Because, well, pineapple! And if you’re a pineapple lover like me, you have to try this recipe.

This is a great dessert to serve at your next family gathering or dinner party. Pineapple Pudding could also be served in individual parfait glasses.

Will both boxes of vanilla wafers be used?

When I make pineapple pudding, I make it in a 9×13 baking pan and I use about one and a half boxes of vanilla wafers.

Do I have to use a 9×13 pan?

No. My mom always made banana pudding in a big bowl. You can also make it in a trifle dish. You can even make these in parfait glasses if you’re serving a crowd. It takes a lot longer but it sure is pretty.

What about crushed pineapple instead of pineapple chunks?

Yes, you can certainly use crushed pineapple if you don’t like the bigger chunks. Just be sure to drain it very well and reserve the juice.
