I’m not a dessert person. Cakes, pies, desserts, ice creams… all of that sweet treats, fancy and not fancy, they must be something really special for me to eat them.
On other hand this Pineapple Flambé, I could eat everyday. Pineapple is so sweet so I don’t understand why in some recipes they add sugar to it.
This recipe is easy to make – the whole procedure last as one TV commercial brake.
1/2 pineapple (cut in rings)
splash of bourbon (1/4 cup)
2 tbsp. butter
vanilla ice cream
2 bananas (cut lengthwise, optional)
handful sliced almonds
Heat the skillet, melt the butter, add pineapple, fry both sides on medium-high heat (until they turn golden brown). Add bourbon, light it up (flambé). Pray that the fire alarm stays silent. Remove the pineapple from the skillet. On remaining liquid warm up the banana. Assembly all ingredients in a serving bowl: place 2 pineapple rings on bottom, top it with two scoops of ice cream, topped with some more pineapple, put banana on the side, sprinkle with almonds.
