10 Min




1/4 c
instant flour(wondra brand)
1/4 c
packed brown sugar
1/4 Tbsp
toasted chopped pecans, or other toasted nuts
2 Tbsp
unsalted butter
1 Tbsp
vegetable oil
1/4 c
heavy cream
vanilla ice cream for serving

Directions Step-By-Step

You can sauté the pineapple without the Wondra flour, although it won't brown as evenly or have a crisp crust.
Measure the flour into a pie plate. In a Pyrex measuring cup, combine 1/4 cup of the pineapple juice with the rum, sugar, and nuts; set aside.
Pat the pineapple dry. One at a time, lightly dredge the pineapple rings in the flour and put them on a wire rack. Heat the butter and oil over medium heat in a 12 inch skillet. When the butter begins to darken slightly, increase the heat to medium high and add the pineapple rings to the skillet. Sauté until golden brown on one side 2 to 3 minutes; turn the pineapple over and sauté until golden brown on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the pineapple to four dessert plates. Carefully add the rum mixture to the empty skillet; simmer and reduce until syrupy, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cream. Spoon a portion of the sauce over each plate and serve immediately with the ice cream.
