Pineapple Fritter Donuts

Pineapple Fritter Donuts | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

Do you ever find yourself playing in the kitchen?

I think we all have that inner child-the experimental science kid.

One evening I made some Hawaiin Chicken and Coconut Rice from a recipe I found online. It was just okay-hey, recipe trial and error!

Well I decided to make some Pineapple Fritters to finish off the meal with a sweet bit more of Hawaii. These were intended to be deep fried (feel free to deep fry the batter in spoonfuls!) but I decided to keep things light and do it this way.

I used a gluten free flour mixture for ours, for the sake of Jesse, and they were just as delicious. Moist and full of bits of juicy pineapple. Feel free to use the pineapple juice in place of some of the milk for even more pineapple goodness. 😉 —you know I did that too!

Pineapple Fritters
Ingredients
1 1/4 c flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 c plus 2 Tb milk
1 Tb vegetable oil
8 oz can crushed pineapple, drained
1/2 c powdered sugar

Combine the first 4 dry ingredients in a large bowl and whisk. Combine the next 4 wet ingredients in another bowl and stir to combine. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix gently to combine.

Prepare the donuts according to the factory instructions for your donut maker, or portion in a mini muffin pan and bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Dust with a good dousing of powdered sugar and serve immediately.

My finicky kids really enjoyed these!
