Buttered Rum Pineapple Shortcake

I'm not the best baker.  Actually, I may be an incredible baker, I just rarely do it.  I'm a food person.  Usually the excitement of dinner preparation leaves me without much ambition for cake, and you know, there's that whole "measuring" thing that I don't do so well.   Dessert at my house is usually fruit or ice cream or a little of both... Oh, and liquor.  Also, when its cold outside,  don't you just love a hint of the tropics inside? 

The ingredients are easy:

What you'll need:

  • loaf of pound cake
  • 1/4 fresh pineapple, cut into large bite-sized pieces
  • 1-3 tsp butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • Dark Rum, about 1/4 cup

into the pan:

  • On medium -high add butter, pineapple and brown sugar.  Heat until warmed through, sugar melted and butter bubbling.
  • Add the rum, careful- stand back- it may be dramatic.!   and let simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  • Cut the pound cake into slices and spoon pineapple mixture (2-3 pieces of pineapple) onto each slice.
  • top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Sweet Dreams!

xo & a pinch,


 happy ending
