Pineapple fritters are a Southern treat.

Pineapple Fritters

This recipe for Pineapple Fritters is quick and children and adults will love them.  Make these fritters for breakfast with coffee or as a snack with milk anytime.  Can be reheated in the microwave and keeps several days in the fridge. If you like pineapple, you will love these pineapple fritters. They are so good. I can make myself sick on them because I just want to keep eating when I make them.

Pineapple fritters are wonderful for breakfast with your morning coffee.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons white granulated sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained

1/2 cup milk

1 cup cooking oil (I use Canola)


Whisk together flour, sugar and baking powder in a bowl.  Add crushed pineapple and milk.  Stir until dough sticks together. (If you think it is too thin, you can add more flour. If you think it is too thick, add more milk). I use 1/4 cup batter for each fritter.  Have your oil hot and drop into hot oil.  Mash out like patties with spatula.  Brown on each side.  Makes 12 fritters.  Drizzle on syrup and powdered sugar or just use the powdered sugar.  Enjoy!

      Look at the bottom of the recipe and you will see where you can pin it to Pinterest, share it on Facebook, etc. There is a printer icon there that looks like a printer. Click on that and you can remove the photo and any text you don’t want and print only the recipe, Jean.

      • I love to print the recipe WITH the picture. Makes it more appetizing. Also makes for a nice cookbook of favorite recipes to pass down to the children.
