      Grilled Pineapple with Pound Cake and Caramel Sauce

      Ingredients:2 tablespoons unsalted butter3/4 cup dark brown sugar2 tablespoons dark rum1/2 cup heavy cream1 small pineapple, peeled and cut in 1/2 pieces2 tablespoons oil1 store-bought pound cake, cut into 1/2-inch thick slicesVanilla ice cream, for servingMaraschino cherries, optionalDirectionsMelt the butter in a small saucepan over high heat, add the brown sugar and rum and cook, whisking until the sugar has melted and the mixture is smooth. Whisk in the heavy cream and cook until heated through and slightly thickened. Keep warm. Heat the grill to high. Brush the pineapple on both sides with a little oil and place on the grill. Grill until golden brown and caramelized on both sides, about 6 minutes. Remove from the grill, stack the slices and cut into chunks. While the pineapple is grilling, place the pound cake on the grill until lightly golden brown on both sides, about 20 seconds on each side. Remove the pineapple from the grill and, when cool enough to handle, either slice or cut into chunks. Top each piece of pound cake with some of the pineapple and drizzle with the caramel-rum sauce. Top with more pound cake, vanilla ice cream and a maraschino cherry, if desired.
