Fancy a treat that looks super impressive, is easy to make, and that kids and adults alike will love?

Here’s a recipe that ticks all those boxes: pineapple puff flowers.

These tasty pastries work just as well for picnics as they do for a quick dessert when you’re craving something sweet, and use canned pineapple to get rid of all the faff.

I like to eat them with custard and apple, or throw in some bananas.

Here’s how to make your own.

  • Pineapple rings (I use Princes tins)
  • puff pastry
  • Milk (to rinse)
  • Blueberries (optional)


  1. Start by cutting the puff pastry into large squares and placing them on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Make slices in pastry as shown in the video.
  2. Dry your pineapple slices if using cans like mine. Place the slice in the center of the dough, connecting each corner to the center.
  3. Place a blueberry in the centre, brush with milk and bake at 180C for 20 minutes until golden brown and crispy.
