Recipe by Aunt Cookie

I adopted this recipe from Zaar. This is a creamy pineapple custard with rum-flavored whipped cream on top...yum! Just a warning - the rum flavor is very strong (especially for a dessert), so you may want to reduce the rum. Also, adding a little sugar to the whipped cream wouldn't hurt it. I hope you like it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix cornstarch and sugar on top of double-broiler (I just set a stainless bowl on top of a saucepan of boiling water).
  2. Gradually stir in eggs and evaporated milk.
  3. Cool mixture stirring constantly until thick and coats a spoon.
  4. Mix in softened butter thoroughly and add rum.
  5. Let cool.
  6. Stir pineapple tidbits into cooled custard.
  7. Pour into individual sundae containers or custard cups (I used 6-6 oz. ramekins).
  8. Whip cream with rum.
  9. Top dessert with cream and garnish with cherries and/or nuts.
  10. Chill before serving.
