Something yummy and easy to make. My mom makes these every New Year's Day. These fritters are best served immediately.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Whisk pineapple, flour, milk, and egg together to form a light and fluffy batter.

  • Bring reserved pineapple juice to a boil in a small saucepan. Add white sugar and stir to dissolve; lower heat. Simmer until thickened glaze forms, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes.

  • Drop spoonfuls of batter in the hot oil, 2 to 3 pieces at a time, and fry until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

  • Drizzle glaze over fritters and dust with confectioners' sugar.

Cook's Note:

I prefer to use skim milk in this recipe.

These are wonderful! in the last 24 hours my and hubs has went through 3 batches of these. I did use almond milk instead of regular milk because that is what I drink. I was skeptical about the batter not having sugar in it but glad I waited. Do not skip the glaze part of this that is where lots of the pineapple flavor and sweetness comes from. If you do the glaze it don't need the powdered sugar. If you really want to put sugar in the batter I would only use a tablespoon or 2. The second batch I did use a teaspoon of vanilla bean paste because at this point we was already in love and I wondered how it would affect the flavor. I was not disappointed as I said we ate 3 batches. I will say if you do not drain the pineapple good enough it may be a little thin but you can add a tablespoon of flour at a time to thicken it to desired consistency. If you do not have self rising flour do not fret just use 1 cup AP flour and add 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder. These will be a staple in our house from now on. Thanks for sharing! Read More

I made this for breakfast. I had to change the recipe a bit. I used bisquik instead of self rising flour and I didn't make the glaze using butter and confectioner sugar instead. I also used cream instead of milk. I didn't feel like going to the food store at 6 AM. My husband says Mmmmmm! Will make again! Read More

The kids really enjoyed them. It was very easy for them to bake. The youngest(6) poured and mixed the ingredients while the oldest (12) measured and made the glaze. Read More

Tasty but didn't make 24. 1 cup of flour with 2 cups of sugar for glaze....I think those measurements are backwards. I had way too much glaze left over and had to add flour to batter because it seemed too watery. Read More

Soppy wet batter that fell apart in the frying pan. Tried turning it into baked donuts, with zero success. Don't waste an hour, a lot of frustration, and some pineapple. Read More
