I completely forgot that I hadn’t posted this recipe yet!! We’ve made it a few times and it is positively heavenly!! And it only takes a few minutes prep and a few minutes to cook……so simple! It is so tangy and a little sweet, with a slightly boozy flavor….it’s really balanced and add some creamy vanilla custard on top and it’s tough to beat!
It’s difficult to say which fruit is Levi’s favorite…is it pineapple or raspberries?!?!?! I can’t tell…..I should make a recipe with both and he would be in heaven! But in the meantime I want to make this again and again! Personally I am not the biggest fan of pineapple, I have to be in the mood. But this recipe will get me in the mood anytime!!
Due to Levi’s deep and abiding love of pineapple I got a stocking stuffer of a nifty little pineapple corer and slicer device. It is pretty handy because I can only imagine what a nightmare butchering a pineapple is. But really the best ones are fresh, not canned, so all that hard work definitely has it’s reward.
I hope you all love it!!!
- 1 fresh Pineapple, cored and sliced
- 1/2 cup Bourbon, or you favorite spiced brown liquor
- 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- Your favorite vanilla ice cream or custard
In a small bowl whisk together the bourbon, brown sugar and cinnamon. In an 8×8 baking pan lay the pineapple slices. Pour the mixture over the slices and cover with plastic wrap. Let it sit for at least 15 minutes. About halfway through flip the slices over to ensure even coating.
Pour the sauce into a small saucepan. Over a medium heat bring the sauce to a simmer. Then reduce heat to low and let it reduce for about 8-10 minutes. Stirring occasionally.
To cook the pineapple use a large saucepan or a grill over medium heat. Coat the pan or grill generously with non-stick cooking spray. Lay the pineapple in a single layer and cook for about 3-5 minutes on each side. You should get some nice caramelization on each side.
Remove the pineapple slices from the pan and add your favorite vanilla ice cream and then drizzle the sauce over top.
Yum yum yummy!!! Levi…let’s make some more!!!
