Pineapple donuts


For the batter

  • In a large bowl add the flour, the baking powder, the sugar, the cinnamon, the ginger, the salt, and mix well with a spoon.
  • In another bowl add the pineapple juice, the egg, and whisk well until the ingredients are homogenized.
  • Combine the two mixtures, whisking constantly until you get a smooth batter.

For the donuts

  • Add plenty of sunflower oil (3-4 cm deep) into a pot and let it get very hot until it reaches 180°C (350° F).
  • Pat the pineapple slices dry well.
  • Use two forks to dip each pineapple slice -very carefully so that the pineapple does not break in half- into the batter, and let the excess batter drip.
  • Fry the pineapple slices, carefully flipping them over 1-2 times, until they are fluffy and nicely golden, for about 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove the pineapple slices from the pot and put them in a baking pan lined with paper towels.

For the glaze

  • In a bowl add the icing sugar, the pineapple juice, the food coloring paste, and mix well with a spoon until you get a smooth, yellow glaze.
  • Dip the top part of the donuts into the bowl, until covered with the glaze.
  • Sprinkle with the ground coconut and serve.
