This recipe has been provided by the team at Sara Lee.


  1. Stir the star anise and cinnamon stick into the pure maple syrup. Set aside for at least 15 minutes. Tip: the longer you leave the spices in the syrup, the more they will infuse to give the syrup a stronger flavour.
  2. Cut the pineapple into 6 wedges or slices.
  3. Melt the butter in the microwave, then mix in the brown sugar to make a syrup.
  4. Heat a grill fry pan and place the pineapple slices face down on the grill. Pour over some of the sugar and butter mix, and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes. Tip: avoid moving the pineapple pieces to assure they cook with the dark grill marks.
  5. Turn the pineapple slices and cook for a further 5 minutes, then remove from heat.
  6. Prepare the Waffle Bros. waffles according to the instructions on the packaging (eg. bake in an oven at 200°C for 4 minutes).
  7. Place heated waffles on a plate, and top each with a slice of grilled pineapple. Pour over some of the star anise and cinnamon syrup, and serve with a dollop of double cream.
