An unusual dessert with a bit of a kick - the good news is this dessert is ready in minutes!


  • 25g (1oz) raisins
  • 75ml (5tbsp) dark rum
  • 100g (4oz) demerara sugar
  • 1 small pineapple
  • 2.5ml (1/2tsp) mixed spice
  • Ice-cream or sorbet, to serve


  1. Place the raisins and rum in a pan. Leave to soak for 15 mins. Add 150ml (1/4pt) water and 75g (3oz) of the sugar and heat gently until the sugar has dissolved. Simmer for 8-10 mins until syrupy.
  2. Meanwhile, cut the pineapple into 8 wedges (keeping on the stalk and leaves if possible). Cut away the tough centre core from each wedge. Place on a baking sheet and sprinkle over the rest of the sugar and mixed spice. Cover the leaves with foil to prevent burning.
  3. Cook under a medium pre-heated grill for 4-5 mins on each side. Serve the hot pineapple wedges with the rum and raisin syrup and with a scoop of ice- cream or sorbet.
