Servings 4


  • 1 whole pineapple
  • 2 tablespoons spiced rum optional
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 5.3 ounces vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 cup chopped salted macadamia nuts


  • Cut the pineapple into quarters lengthwise.
  • Save half of the pineapple for another recipe.
  • Remove core from the other two quarters.
  • Cut remaining quarters in half lengthwise, and remove the rind from each.
  • Cut each section in half lengthwise again, so that you have 8 long sections.
  • Place in a rimmed dish and pour rum over slices, if using.
  • Allow to sit for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Place slices on a greased, rimmed baking sheet, and bake for 5 minutes.
  • Remove sheet from oven, and switch oven to broil.
  • Move rack to highest position.
  • Sprinkle sugar over the pineapple sections.
  • Place under broiler for 2-3 minutes.
  • Allow pineapple to cool for a minute or two, and then cut each segment into 7 or 8 cubes.
  • Arrange cubes in a circle on a small plate.
  • Place two tablespoons of yogurt in the middle of the circle.
  • Sprinkle with macadamia nuts.
  • Eat immediately; it’s best when the pineapple is warm.
