Posh Warm Spiced Pineapple Upside Down Cake

This is one of those puddings I remember from my childhood, Probably one of the British classics that we all seem to have fond memories of. When I was very young, a pineapple always reminded me of distant exotic lands.

I've called this recipe POSH, It isn't really, I've added some Rum to the sauce, and made a granita with the pineapple trimmings, But, In truth, this is just a blooming good pudding.

This recipe will serve 8-10 people ( you can halve these quantities to make 4-5 pudding if desired )
