Grilled Pineapple Dessert


Yes.  This is just as fabulous as it looks.

This is the first time I’ve ever grilled fruit.  Someone mentioned grilled pineapple on the Ebates Savvy Living Community and I could not get it out of my head.  And I thought it would be best served over pound cake, topped with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.

Caramel and pineapple is a combination I’ve tried before.  And this version with cake and ice cream reminded me of a tropical twist on strawberry shortcake.

Grilling the pineapple adds depth of flavor to the fruit.  It doesn’t hurt that the rings get basted in brown sugar and butter. 

I don’t have an ingredient photo for this post.  I used a whole pineapple, which I sliced into rounds and then cut out the core from each slice.

Baste the pineapple with 4 Tbs. butter melted and stirred together with 1/4 cup brown sugar.  I placed the slices on a grill over low heat, basting with the sauce several times.  It takes 5 or more minutes per side for them to be done.

After grilling, allow the slices to cool slightly.  Then place a ring over a slice of pound cake, top with vanilla ice cream and drizzle with more of the basting sauce or with caramel ice cream topping.

Have you ever grilled fruit before?

    On the grilled pineapple dessert, place the pound cake slices on the grill at the same time, brush with butter and it causes the warm grilled desert to blend even better 🙂
