For crepes, in a small bowl combine the flour, milk, orange peel, the 1/2 cup orange juice, the egg, and oil.
Beat with a rotary beater until well mixed.
Heat a lightly greased 6-inch skillet over medium heat.
Spoon 2 tablespoons of the batter into the skillet; lift and tilt the skillet to spread batter.
Return to heat; brown on one side only.
Invert pan over paper towels; remove crepe.
Repeat with the remaining batter, greasing skillet occasionally.
Fold each crepe in half, browned side out.
Fold in half again, forming a triangle.
Place crepes in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Keep warm in a 300° oven while making the sauce.
For sauce, cut the pineapple slices into fourths; set aside.
In a medium saucepan melt butter or margarine.
Stir in brown sugar and cornstarch.
Add the 1/2 cup orange juice.
Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.
Cook and stir for 1 minute more.
Add the pineapple, orange sections, and, if desired, rum.
Cook over low heat, stirring gently, until heated through.
