Grilled Pineapple "Foster"

Yield: Serves 4

This is a variation of flambéed Bananas Foster - one of New Orleans best desserts. Have all ingredients measured-out in advance (cover the brown sugar so that it doesn’t dry out), and you can prepare this tableside in minutes – and really wow your guests!


  • ½ peeled, cored pineapple, cut into 3 or 4 lengths
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into tablespoons
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup Meyer’s dark rum
  • 1-pint vanilla ice cream


  1. Grill the pineapple until tender over a medium-high grill. There should be well-caramelized grill marks.
  2. Cut the pineapple into chunks, and reserve. In a large skillet or flambé dish melt the butter over medium heat. Add the sugar and cinnamon and stir slowly to make a smooth, thick sauce.
  3. Add the reserved pineapple and cook to heat through, basting occasionally 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. In a small saucepan, heat the rum over medium-low heat. Carefully pour over the pineapple without stirring and ignite with a match.
  5. Slide the pan back and forth gently, stirring until the flames die.

Serve the pineapple and sauce over a scoop of vanilla ice cream. NOTE: if your flame should extinguish before most of the alcohol burns off, continue to cook for another minute or two to remove any harsh alcohol-bite. To sign dad up, click here.
