• 100g California walnuts, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup plus extra to serve
  • 1 large pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into 12 wedges
  • 50g butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons icing sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Mix the walnuts and maple syrup together and spread out onto a small baking tray lined with baking parchment, bake for 7-8 minutes until golden and allow to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, griddle the pineapple in 2 batches for 2 minutes each side to give golden bar marks.
  4. Whisk the butter and icing sugar together in a small bowl until pale and fluffy, stir in 25g of the walnut crumb.
  5. Serve the griddled pineapple sprinkled with the remaining walnut crumb, a drizzle of maple syrup and a spoonful of the walnut butter.

Cooks tip:
Great for barbecues. Try stirring the 25g walnut crumb into vanilla ice cream instead of the whisked butter.
