Preheat oven 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, toss the pineapple with 1 cup of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg. In a hot cast iron skillet, melt 1/2 stick of the butter. Caramelize the pineapple, about 3 to 5 minutes. For the batter: In a mixing bowl, cream one cup of the butter and 1 1/2 cups of the sugar. Stir in the eggs one at a time.
