Crispy Pineapple Bites: A Sweet Treat


oil for frying

1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, drained and juice reserved

1 cup self-rising flour

½ cup milk

1 egg

2 cups white sugar

2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar for dusting, or as needed (Optional)


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.
