Pineapple Lump Lolly Cake

Today I decided to make a variation of Lolly Cake.
For the non-Kiwi's out there Lolly Cake is a New Zealand recipe for a slice.


1/2 tin of Condensed Milk
120g Butter (softened)
250g packet of malt biscuits (crushed finely)
1 packet (approximately 250g) of lollies, typically these would be a packet of Eskimo Lollies.
(I substituted for Pineapple lumps).
Coconut to cover the exterior of the log once made. (I omitted this step, as I'm allergic).

1. Crush the biscuits finely: I put mine into a triple layered plastic bag, then smashed them repeatedly with a rolling pin. 

2. Combine the softened butter and condensed milk in a microwave safe bowl and allow them to melt together in the microwave. It took me about 45 seconds to do this (*Time depends on your microwave and settings).
3. Combine the crushed biscuits and the butter/condensed milk mixture into a bowl. Stir to combine. 

4. Mix in the pineapple lump bits. (I cut mine into two bits for each bit so it's not too large; if using Eskimos slice into about 3-4 pieces for each one).

5. Turn the entire mixture onto a long piece of plastic wrap. Shape into a long log.
If you're using coconut to cover it, you'd put the coconut onto the plastic wrap then shape it into a log with the plastic wrap.

6. Refrigerate for 4 hours. 

7. Slice into even slices. 

There is even a Wikipedia post about Lolly Cake:
