In this baked pineapple recipe, roasting the fruit in a hot oven concentrates its sweetness. Sugar and cinnamon up the ante, of course. Remember that brown sugar is preferable to white because it caramelizes into a deeper, richer flavor.

Don't want to heat up the entire house on a hot summer day? Coat the pineapple wedges in the sugar and cinnamon mixture and toss them on a grill. Or, cook the pineapple pieces in an air fryer at 380 F for 12 to 15 minutes. Serve with ice cream or over pound cake.
