Brown sugar baked pineapple
125g brown sugar
Preheat oven to 190 degrees C
Peel the pineapple and slice into 1cm slices and remove the core. Heat 1/2 the butter in a frypan until foaming. Add the pineapple slices and fry, adding more butter when needed, until the pineapple is lightly coloured. Remove the pineapple from the pan and put in a roasting dish.
In the meantime, put the brown sugar in a saucepan and cook for 4 minutes.
Turn down the temperature on the frypan, but before the pan has cooled, add the water and brownsugar mix - be careful as the syrup will bubble. Simmer briefly, and pour over the pineapple.
Put in the oven for around 20 minutes basting occasionally until a rich golden brown. Serve while warm with vanilla icecream.
