  • Half a sachet of vanilla yeast
  • 100ml milk or pineapple syrup
  • Pineapple in syrup 1 jar

  1. First of all, cut out a disc of baking paper and make it adhere perfectly to the bottom of a 26cm diameter baking tray.
  2. Melt 30g. of butter in a non-stick saucepan with 80 gr. of brown sugar until it is well caramelized, then distribute it evenly on the paper that you have placed on the bottom of the pan. Now place the pineapple slices on top of the caramel.

  4. Insert the sifted flour with the yeast and change the whisk with the leaf hook, knead the mixture, adding the milk (or syrup) little at a time. Finally, when you have obtained a consistent spoonful cream, add the pineapple you have leftover to the mixture, cutting it into small pieces.
