OMG, WOW!!! This was incredible. EASY and DELICIOUS! DH doesn't like rum so I didn't add any and it still tasted GREAT!!! I had some Syrup leftover and saved it for an ice cream sundae later that day. That was GREAT too! I did burn my toast a bit while frying it, but that didn't matter, it was still AMAZING! The Pineapple gave the syrup a wonderful flavor and a different twist to ordinary french toast. You must try this recipe. Enjoy everyone!
