Pineapple Tart

This is my little prince favourite. He can eat it every day till all of its gone.


  • 250g butter
  • 75g icing sugar
  • 2 egg yorks
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/4 tsp salt
Sifted together:
  • 350g plain flour
  • 50g corn flour
  • 1 pineapple, clean & grated
  • 150g castor sugar
  • 2 cloves
  • 1 small star anise
Prepare the filling:
Cook the grated pineapple, sugar, cloves and star anise over a medium heat until it begins to boil. Reduce to low heat and simmer until mixture is almost dry and thick. Keep stirring at all time (this will take about 45 minutes). Leave aside to cool.
Prepare the pastry:
Cream butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg york, one at a time. Add in essence and salt and beat until fluffy. Fold in sifted ingredients and mix it into a firm dough.
Take a ball of pastry & wrap the filling. Roll it into slightly oval shape. Bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Move to wire rack to cool.
