Natillas with Caramelized Pineapple

Made with egg yolks, milk, sugar vanilla and cinnamon, Natillas are one of the most typical Spanish desserts. Despite of being very similar to other desserts from South America, Natillas are also close to what is known as custard, crème anglaise, crème pâtissière or crema catalana, and the only difference among them is their thickness and complementary flavors or ingredients added.
