Fluffy Pineapple Torte Recipe

This fluffy dessert is so good after a hearty meal because even a big slice is as light as a feather. The cream cheese-pineapple combination makes it irresistible. -Gina Squires, Salem, Oregon

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 1, 2014

I recall preparing this recipe when it was first featured in Taste of Home! Here is what I had done with this recipe: 1-1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup cinnamon-sugar and 1/4 cup melted butter or margarine. FILLING: 12 oz. can evaporated milk, 1 package (3-oz.) lemon OR cherry gelatin, 1 cup boiling water, 1 package (8-oz.) cream cheese, softened, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup crushed pineapple, drained, 1 cup chopped pecans OR walnuts! I'd prepared the gelatin and chilled about 1 hour. The evaporated milk was chilled in my metal Kitchen Aid mixing bowl. Since I used a wire whisk attachment, the best thing for me is to pour the milk into the bowl along with the wire whisk and chill the 2 hours! I'd made this for a baby shower after seeing this recipe! I'd also shared this recipe with a cousin & with various friends! I think it's great! Thank you for sharing this recipe with Taste of Home! delowenstein

I made this for an office picnic, and everyone who tried it loved it. I had several requests for the recipe.

This tasted fine, and was indeed very light, but for me it was too labor- and equipment-intensive for the results I got. Probably won't make it again.
