Roasted Pineapple with A Sprinkling of Spices

What would you do with pineapples, other than eat it fresh, juice it or make a pineapple upside down cake? Roasting the fruit, brings out its sweetness and pepper and chilli on it makes it wonderful. I added a couple of tablespoons of Bacardi rum at the end of the roasting. Try it, it is really worth it and so simple!


  • 1 pineapple, peeled and cored
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter (vegan butter)
  • 1-2 tbsp Bacardi Rum (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 180ºC/ 35ºF
  • Butter a baking pan
  • Slice cored pineapple into 1/2 inch slices
  • Mix sugar and chill flakes on a plate
  • Coat the pineapple slices with the mixture and place on a baking pan
  • Sprinkle cracked pepper on the slices.
  • Top with butter
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, basting with butter every 10 minutes.
  • If using rum, pour over the pineapple slices at the end of 20 minutes and bake for another 10 minutes
  • Serve it just like that or as a dessert with some whipped cream or ice cream
  • Enjoy!
