Ingredients

Scale
  • 10 - 12 slices of canned pineapple
  • 2/3 cup + 3 tablespoons (200 ml) milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2/3 cup + 2 tablespoons (100 g) all-purpose flour
  • 4.2 oz (120 g) shredded coconut
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons (20 g) icing sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 33.8 fl oz (1 liter) frying oil

Instructions

  1. To make the pineapple fritter batter, sift flour and icing sugar into a bowl. Make a fountain in the center of dry ingredients, pour in the egg and olive oil, and mix with a rubber spatula. Then pour cold milk little by little and mix: the dough will be smooth and thick enough. Cover the bowl with plastic film and refrigerate for 2 hours.

  2. Meanwhile, drain pineapple slices using a paper towel.

  3. Heat frying oil in a large saucepan to 350 F/175 C (use a cooking thermometer). Pour shredded coconut on a shallow plate. Dip pineapple slices in the batter to coat them thoroughly, and then put them in shredded coconut. Dip two pineapple slices coated in the batter and coconut in hot frying oil. Cook them for about 1 to 3 minutes per side, turning over with two forks or tongs until the fritters become golden brown. Continue with the rest of the pineapple slices, cooking them two by two. Drain pineapple fritters on paper towels and serve immediately.

Notes

  1. Be sure the pineapple slices are well-drained and patted dry; otherwise, the fritter batter will not stick.
  2. If you do not have a cooking thermometer, put 3 to 4 raw, dry corn kernels in the oil. Once they burst, the oil is at the right temperature.
  3. Don’t overcrowd the saucepan while frying: fry two pineapple rings at once. Cooking more than two rings at once can result in a drop in frying oil temperature and greasy fritters instead of the crispy ones.
  4. To keep the finished fritters warm, set the oven on low heat and place rings on a baking sheet lined with a paper towel. Keep fritters in the oven until ready to serve
  5. The calorie count is calculated per pineapple ring and does not include the frying oil since its amount will vary depending on the type of oil used, cooking time, and temperature.
