Caramelized Pineapple with Ice Cream

All You AUGUST 2009

  • Yield: Serves 6
  • Cook time:4 Minutes
  • Prep time:10 Minutes
  • Cost Per Serving:$1.11


  • 1 cored fresh pineapple (about 20 oz.)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream


1. Slice pineapple into eight rings and cut each into 6 pieces. (If you can't find cored pineapple, buy a whole one and use a paring knife to remove skin and cut into slices. Extract core from each slice with a round cookie cutter.)

2. Warm butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When butter begins to foam, add pineapple and brown sugar and cook, stirring frequently, until pineapple begins to brown and sugar is dissolved, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat, scrape into a shallow bowl, and let stand until just warm to the touch, 2 to 3 minutes.

3. Divide ice cream among 6 dessert dishes. Top each with pineapple and sauce. Serve immediately.
