Tips for Easy Pineapple Dessert:

  • Pineapple – We recommend using fresh pineapple for this dessert. Canned fruit doesn’t hold up very well in this recipe.
  • Slicing pineapple – Slice pineapple about the same size so it cooks evenly.
  • Baking Sheet – We recommend lining baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. This allows for easy clean up and to easily remove the pineapple.
  • Brown Sugar – We used brown sugar in this recipe, but you can easily use a healthier sweetener to fit within your diet.

Topping Ideas:

  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Caramel Syrup
  • Whipped Topping
  • Crushed up graham crackers
  • Mandarin Oranges

Not only does this make an amazing dessert but you can serve the slices alone with holiday ham, as a side dish and more! Everyone will love it.

Baked Pineapple Dessert Variations

  • Pineapple – If you do not have fresh pineapple, try using crushed pineapple or pineapple chunks in a prepared baking dish. It will still be amazing but have more of a baked pineapple pineapple casserole consistency.
  • Casserole Dish – Instead of a baking sheet, you can use a casserole dish if you would like to serve it that way.
  • Top with Sauce – Add caramel sauce on top of the ice cream for an extra treat or even cool whip.
  • Serve as a side dish – Omit the ice cream and serve this as a side dish to ham, chicken and lots more. Grilled chicken or baked ham would be amazing with this. We really love this.

How to Store:

Place leftover baked pineapple in an air tight container. It will stay fresh for up to 3 days.

If you prefer to have it warm again, heat in the microwave for about 30 seconds then top with ice cream.

Why we Love this Recipe:

  • Simple Ingredients – This is a perfect recipe to make for yourself or serve to a crowd. It only requires a few ingredients and they can easily be changed.
  • Healthy – This healthy dessert is perfect if you wanting something sweet but trying staying within your diet.
  • Crowd Favorite – My family loves pineapple, and they love it even more when baked and served with a scoop of ice cream.

  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 Pineapple
  • 1/2 gallon Vanilla Ice Cream


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Slice pineapple to desired thickness (mine were about ½" thick and my small pineapple yielded 7 slices).
  • Place the pineapple on a foil lined cookie sheet.
  • Sprinkle the brown sugar on top of the pineapple slices.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until the edges of the pineapple are golden brown.
  • Serve topped with ice cream and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

I usually make this with fresh sliced pineapple but you use sliced canned pineapple too.  If you used canned, check the pineapple after 10 minutes as the pineapple will cook quicker since the pineapple is thinner.
