Tips and Techniques

  1. If you're running short on time, you can use a store-bought batter mix rather than making it from scratch, as the recipe above advises.
  2. For a stronger flavor, adjust the amount of cinnamon powder.
  3. Serve pineapple fritters immediately while still crunchy.
  4. Try using other fruits. Try our eggless tropical fruit fritters.
