This is a pre-scheduled post because you may not hear from me for a few days. The plan is to not leave the bed for a couple days... except to cook, because food is an integral part of our relationship. Right, did I mention that Louis comes home TODAY?!?!?! Fuck yeah.
A couple weeks ago I bought a pineapple that looked really good, but wasn't all that fantastic when I cut it up. It wasn't completely ripe so the flesh was a little harder than it should have been and the flavor wasn't as prominent as I like. This is a great way to fix a sub par pineapple. Baking it releases and concentrates the sugars while breaking down the flesh. A harder pineapple is actually better for this because then the fruit doesn't get mushy when baked. It would be great over ice cream or as is.
4 C pineapple cut into bite sized chunks
1/4 C granulated sugar
1/4 C flour + 2 Tbsp
1/4 C melted butter
1/2 C quick oats
1/3 C brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Toss pineapple with granulated sugar and 2 Tbsp of flour. Put in a lightly sprayed baking dish.
Combine the rest of the ingredients for the topping. Even distribute over pineapple.
Bake at 375 deg F for 20-25 minutes, until topping is golden brown.
