I am a chef on a luxury world cruise liner. I love to cook and write recipes that are inspired by foods from all over the world.
Fritters are deep-fried snacks that usually consist of batter-coated meat, seafood, vegetables, or fruit. Their flavor may be savory or sweet. In this recipe, I'm sharing my all-time favorite way to prepare canned pineapple slices. This juicy and crunchy pineapple fritter recipe flavored with cinnamon sugar is a dish that everyone can enjoy as a simple snack or dessert.

Tips and Techniques
- 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.
- For a stronger flavor, adjust the amount of cinnamon powder.
- Serve pineapple fritters immediately while still crunchy.
- Try using other fruits. Try our eggless tropical fruit fritters.
