  1. 1

    Peel and thinly slice the pineapple. Cut out the tough core using a small round cutter or the tip of a sharp knife.

  2. 2

    Put the pineapple slices and any pineapple juice into a large frying pan with the rum and lime juice and heat. Light the alcohol by carefully tilting the pan into the gas flame, or by using a match, and allow the flames to die down.

  3. 3

    Dot the pineapple with butter and sprinkle with sugar. Shake the pan while heating gently, until the butter melts, the sugar dissolves, and the mixture thickens to a glaze. Serve with whipped cream and a dusting of ground cinnamon.
