Ingredients

  • 1 large pineapple
  • 1/3 cup of dried fruits raisins, cranberries, or cherries
  • Zest of 1 small orange or tangerine
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup organic preferably
  • 4 tbsp dark rum
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch or 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • 2 eggs white
  • 2 tbsp muscovado sugar turbinado sugar, light or dark brown sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit. Wash and dry the pineapple. Cut off the both ends (leafy part and the bottom part) and discard. Place on a cutting board or flat plate, stand the pineapple on one end and with a sharp knife, slice off the skin, removing the prickly skin and the “eyes” or brown spots. Cut the pineapple in half lengthwise and cut out the hard, woody core, then slice the flesh
  • Arrange the slices in a large ovenproof dish and sprinkle dried fruits. Drizzle half of the maple syrup and half of the rum. Sprinkle the orange zest.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for 5 to 7 minutes depending on the thickness of the slices or until the pineapple slices are slightly softer.
  • Mix the remaining maple syrup, rum, egg yolk, cornstarch/flour, vanilla extract and ginger in a bowl. If using flour, make sure there are no lumps.
  • Whisk the egg whites in a separate and cleaned bowl until a soft peak is formed.
  • Stir in 2 tablespoons of the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture, then fold the remaining egg yolks mixture into the egg whites.
  • Spread the topping over the hot pineapple slices, then sprinkle sugar over the top. Bake in a 475? preheated oven for an additional 5 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

Dried fruits variations: black raising, golden raisins, dried cranberries, dried cherries, dried apricots, dried dates, or dried figs.
Use fresh pineapple only, no canned.
Use a good vanilla extract brand. Use a food rum brand. Can also use white rum but dark rum is favorable.
Use any preferred dried semi tart fruits
Substitute flour for cornstarch if unavailable.
