Roasted Pineapple in Rum Sauce

Like chicken fingers minus the meat, add sugar, booze and butter. OK nothing like chicken fingers

So yeah, pineapple was on sale recently…

Roasted Pineapple with Rum Sauce

  • 1 small pineapple, cut into spears
  • 1/4  cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup spiced rum
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cornstarch whisked with 1/2 tsp of water

In a two-quart saucepan, whisk butter and brown sugar until butter melts. Remove from heat and stir in rum, spice and cornstarch mix, stirring to incorporate. Place pineapples in a single layer in a 9 by 13 pan. Drizzle rum sauce over the fruit. Bake at 400 for about 25 minutes until pineapple juices bubble and the fruit is nice and golden. Serve alone or over ice cream or pound cake or pancakes.

    Okay, okay, I give. Buying a pineapple tomorrow, even if it isn’t on sale! This one looks like a real guest-pleaser at the end of a meal. (No chicken fingers, though)

    This sounds like a great sauce. I haven’t had fresh pineapple in a long time … I think I’ll pick one up this weekend and see what comes of it all. 🙂

  4. Someone recently gave me a pineapple plant with a tiny little pineapple growing out of it… this looks like a good thing to bookmark for when it’s actually big enough to eat. 😉

  5. Simple and delicious: I must try it.

  6. Now, all this needs is a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream with caramel rum sauce. Yum!

    That looks great, Greg. Pineapple and rum are a fabulous combo (perhaps one or two libation recipes may have these ingredients too!!!)
    Would you add a bit of vanilla ice cream or even whipped cream?

  13. HAve printed this recipe off to add to my collection – looks absolutely delicious

  14. I checked out the pineapples at the store yesterday, after your fish recipe…Hard as rocks, every one of them. No scent at all. Sad…too green to ripen well.
    Going to try again on Monday…I might need two, now!

  15. I don’t think I’ve ever roasted pineapple before; what a great idea (ok, and the rum too ;-0).

  16. Yuri says:

    This looks so good! Sending panda hugs to you and Katherine 🙂

  17. I love this, I’ve had grilled pineapple but I’m sure roasted tastes just as yummy and sweet. Wow, and rum, you really out did yourself! 🙂

  18. I want this for breakfast NOW!

  19. ceciliag says:

  20. This has an almost 60’s vibe to it! I’m just thinking what I could put it on.. maybe some ice cream…

  21. That reminds me…. I need to go enjoy my pineapple before it is too far gone. Maybe this is a way I will fix it. Looks lovely.

  22. rumpydog says:

    I LOVE pineapples but never considered adding rum sauce. And I agree with Geni, this would be perfect for any party

  34. Jessica says:

    Vegetarian chicken fingers? I could see these ask part of a roasted fruit skewer!

  35. KBL says:

    I have been wanting to try this every since you posted it. Going to make it Friday as I have a friend coming for a visit. I’ve already got the pineapple & rum (I think)/ so for a change I con’t have to get ingredients!
