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


  • Preheat the oven to 200oC, gas mark 6.
  • 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.
  • Meanwhile, griddle the pineapple in 2 batches for 2 minutes each side to give golden bar marks.
  • Whisk the butter and icing sugar together in a small bowl until pale and fluffy, stir in 25g of the walnut crumb.
  • 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.
