  • Your favorite waffle batter Any waffle batter will do here. It doesn't need to be anything fancy.
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar per waffle
  • One pineapple ring per waffle section.


  • Heat waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.
  • Spray with a non-stick cooking spray.
  • Pour the waffle batter onto the waffle iron as you would for normal waffles. Let the waffle batter cook until it is solid, but not brown or crispy. ┬áIn my waffle iron, this took two minutes.

  • Leaving the waffle on the waffle iron, fill each depression in the waffle with brown sugar.
  • Place a pineapple ring in the center of each waffle section.
  • Spread a little brown sugar on top of the pineapple ring.
  • Close waffle iron and cook until sugar starts to caramelize. This took four minutes in my waffle iron.

  • Eat while still hot. We found these sweet enough to eat without syrup, but if you want to add some, go for it!
