This gooey treat is my absolute favourite dessert. I was introduced to this when I was in my early 20's, but turned into the biggest kid by a mere sniff of its tangy scent. I hope that once you taste this dreamy combination of pineapple and coconut, it will become your favourite, too.

      This looks delicious. I think I'd ask someone a better cook that I am to make it, though.
