How to Make Pineapple Funnels


  1. Preheat oil in large heavy pot over medium high heat. Make the batter: Beat milk and eggs in small bowl. In another bowl, sift flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Gradually add milk mixture to dry mixture, whisking until fully incorporated and no lumps remain. Pierce bottom of each pineapple piece with a stick. Pat pineapple dry with paper towels. Once oil reaches 350, dip pineapple sticks in batter, carefully place in pot (work in batches, in needed) and fry 5 to 6 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Dust with powdered sugar if desired. Serve hot. Makes 4 servings
