Cooking On A Budget: Caramelized Pineapple Dessert

Caramelized Pineapple Dessert


We had a sale of $2.99 on pineapples this week at our local grocery store and I could just not pass it up! Sometimes they are $4.99 each and higher. Other than using them just as they are, I decided to do this simple dessert using up some angel food "cupcakes" we also purchased. This dessert tackles that craving for sweet while providing your body with a healthy fruit!
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 3 tbsp. light brown sugar
  • pineapple, peeled, sliced in 1/2 inch circles then cut in triangles (remove the hard core from each slice)
  • whipped cream for topping
In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter and brown sugar. Stir well until the brown sugar dissolves then add in the pineapple, stirring to coat. Cook for a few minutes to allow some of the pineapples natural juices to come out, then remove from the heat.
Cut the angel food cupcake in half and top with the caramelized pineapple and sauce then add a nice dollop of whipped cream.
Heavenly, sweet and so tasty!
