    Made this for a club get together. It was great served with ham. A lot of requests for the recipe.

    Love the concept! To Great Grand Ma... so....someone would spend all this time to make a dessert that you would only have 1 serving? So if you really like it, are you going to go right back in the kitchen and make another one? And I would think you wouldn't eat it all at one sitting. So you gave this person zero stars because you couldn't think outside the box and cut the ingredients in half? Maybe you should google "desserts for 2 people "

    To Great Grand Ma - why rate a recipe zero stars when your are complaining about serving size. Contact TOH to make the complaint! Don't fault the recipe!!

    I made this for a family gathering. Since I love coconut, I added a lot more coconut and it was a huge hit! I served it with vanilla ice cream at room temperature...not a bite was left!

    No! Being alone--I don't need a recipe for 9 or so many people! Would appreciate recipes for 1 or 2 people!

    I added a little extra brown sugar and probably an extra 1 -2 tbsp of toasted coconut because of reviews that said it was bland. It was definitely sweet and delicious with a bit of tart from the pineapple. My husband only liked it with ice cream, I thought it was better without though. I would think using canned pineapple might not get it as soft. I will definitely make this again.

    My Mom made this the other day. I did not care for the bananas in it. Next time maybe put coconut and mandarin oranges in it.

    We loved this receipe. Tart on the first bite, but its great! The sweetness of the bananas helped to curb the tartness of the pineapple. This would be great for breakfast also.
