Pineapple Donuts

Wow. My mind was telling me “Hey, look! A donut!”. But my taste buds were telling me “Those aren’t donuts! Those look really different and cool!”. Pineapple donuts! Woo hoo!

Pineapple rings coated in a simple batter that cooks up golden brown delicious (GBD), reminiscent of ‘normal’ donuts, are fantastic. Next they get drizzled with maple syrup and sprinkled with confectioners sugar.
Pineapple DonutsThese little slices of heaven make for an outstandingly good dessert.

I bought this really cool pineapple corer from Amazon the other day that I’ve been just waiting to use so I picked up a pineapple on sale, got the corer out of the box, and in about a minute I had perfect fresh pineapple rings for these pineapple donuts.

The corer can also be used to make a pineapple ‘bowl’, great for serving things like fried rice and grilled shrimp with pineapple. Click on the picture below if you want to learn more about it on Amazon. It’s a fun little gadget.

Also try my glazed baked mini-donuts.

Grilled Maple Bacon Donuts

You have the grill fired up. You just finished off a great dinner consisting of burgers, grilled corn-on-the-cob, a wedge salad, and some ice cold watermelon. It’s time for some grilled maple bacon donuts! Just toss a few donuts on a hot grill for 1 or so minutes per side, just long enough to get them warm and get some pretty grill marks, and you’re ready to eat!

GrilledMapleBaconDonutsI used maple syrup, but you know these treats would be just as great with chocolate or fudge syrup and chopped toasted nuts. Or anything, really. NOTHING is as good as a grilled glazed donut. Nothing. Well, maybe you could use a bear claw. Or an eclair. Oh man, an elcair! Ok, that’s what I’m making next!
