Pineapple Crunch Cake

This winning recipe from the 2014 Tropical Wholefoods recipe competion, submitted by Debbie Cassar Wheelen, ticks all the boxes. The sweet and sticky cake is unbaked and covered with a sinfully crunchy topping of chocolate and coconut. It's rich enough to serve 8-10 people with small slices, but good enough to keep all to yourself. It does need to be frozen overnight and thawed in the fridge for 3 hours before serving, but it is worth the wait.

1 cup Tropical Wholefoods Fairtrade Organic dried pineapple

2 cups oats

1 cup ground almonds

1 lemon squeezed

pince salt

pinch cinnamon

4 tbsp honey or maple syrup

6 tbsp sunflower oil

6 tbsp sunflower oil

1 1/2 tbsp margarine
