Brown Sugar-Baked Pineapple

Prep time 10 mins
Stand time 10 mins
Broil time 17 mins
Yield Makes 8 servings (serving size: 2 pineapple slices and 1/2 cup ice cream)
We love the combination of the warm baked pineapple and cold ice cream in this dessert. The sweet pineapple is also great on top of pound cake and other desserts.


  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 fresh pineapples, peeled and cored
  • 4 cups light vanilla ice cream

How to Make It

  1. Stir together first 3 ingredients in a small bowl; let stand 10 minutes.

  2. Cut each pineapple into 8 (3/4- to 1-inch-thick) slices.

  3. Place pineapple slices on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet, and pour honey mixture evenly over top. Broil 3 inches from heat 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with ice cream.

  4. Note: For nutritional analysis, we used Breyers All Natural Light Creamy Vanilla ice cream.
