"Grilled" Pineapple

I always love trying new food and within the past year, I got to try Brazillian BBQ. Aside from the tons of meats, I absolutely LOVED the grilled pineapple dessert. I remember sitting at the table, and the gaúchos coming around with a skewered whole pineapple with carmalized cinnamon sugar grilled rotisserie style. The other day I saw these tiny pineapples from South Africa and I decided to try and make my own version of the grilled pineapple. Since I don't have a grill, I had to improvise with my oven.
1.) Mini Pineapple from South Africa

2.) After prepping the pineapple

3.) Another picture without flash

4.) Coating my mini pinapple with some cinnamon sugar that I mixed up

5.) "Grilling" in the oven at 400'F. You can see the water and sugars bubbling

6.) After baking in the oven for half an hour

7.) My pineapple on my plate...I have to say, it smells SOO delicious. Fruity cinnamon buns, sort of.

8.) Slicing it like the gaúchos did, also "coring" the pineapple

9.) Another picture...look at how juicy it is!

10.) After I cored and sliced the pineapple. It was absoutely delicious!!!

Have a great weekend!!!

I have never seen tiny pineapples like that, how freakin cute are those things!! That looks like it tasted so good. I love warm pineapple, it just tastes so sweet and good.
