We recently went out for breakfast to Denny's. They had these Hawaiian Tropical Pancake Puppies that were ok, but they got me thinking... I bet I could make a pretty sweet variation of my Applesauce Beignets! I was so right! Now, I'm sure this is in no way authentically Hawaiian, but I LOVE the tropical flavors all fried together! Plus, I didn't over cook them like the applesauce ones, so extra bonus!
2 1/2 C flour
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 plus 2 tbsp milk
3 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 C sour cream
1 1/2 C crushed pineapple, mostly drained
1 C coconut, plus some for topping
3 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
In a bowl, combine all ingredients. Blend well. Heat oil on Medium heat and drop by teaspoonful into oil. Fry to desired brownness.
I attempted to roll them in coconut after, but it didn't stick. I'd still suggest at least sprinkling some on top...
