So I started with pineapple, decided that I wanted to make a slice, and pulled out a heap of different things from the pantry, chucked them all together and waited patiently to see how it turned out. It turned out lovely. The base is nice and spongy and the pineapple layer makes a great sweet topping.
I also made oatmeal buttercream pies! You can find the recipe for them here: http://www.kevinandamanda.com/recipes/dessert/oatmeal-buttercream-pies.html
