Summer just isn't the same without a healthy helping of pineapples.
|1||pineapple — large|
|100 ml||maple syrup|
|10 ml||lemon juice|
|2 l||ice cream — vanilla|
|100 g||brittle — peanut, crushed|
|100 ml||coconut — shavings, toasted|
Remove the crown, then cut the pineapple into eighths, lengthways. Using a sharp knife, make incisions in each piece at 1.5cm intervals, without cutting through the skin.
Melt the butter, syrup and lemon juice in a frying pan over medium heat. Fry the pineapple slices in the mixture until golden brown all over.
Scoop about 6 – 8 ice cream balls and roll them in the crushed peanut brittle and coconut shavings.
Place a hot, pan-fried pineapple slice alongside an ice cream ball or two.
