Chef Ken Frank presents a prix fixe tasting menu that changes weekly at La Toque, a top-notch French restaurant in the Napa Valley. He suggests pairing these crunchy fritters with coconut ice cream.
For The Roasted Pineapple (best done the day before):
1 small fresh pineapple
1/2 stick melted unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
For the Fritter Batter:
1 7/8 cups cake flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 tablespoon baking soda
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 cup milk
1 large egg lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup pineapple juice
vegetable oil for frying
1 Recipe Hot Buttered Rum Sauce (see recipe)
Other necessary recipes:
Hot Buttered Rum Sauce
FOR THE ROASTED PINEAPPLE: Heat the oven to 250 degrees F. Peel, core and slice the pineapple into 1/2-inch thick rounds. Arrange them on a nonstick baking sheet, brush them with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar. Roast the pineapple slices for 5 to 6 hours occasionally turning and basting them until they begin to caramelize. Remove them from the oven, allow to cool, and chop into 1/2-inch pieces.

FOR THE FRITTER BATTER: Into a large mixing bowl sift together the dry ingredients, make a well in the center and add the wet ingredients. With a fork mix gently until all the ingredients are incorporated, do not over mix. Fold in the roasted pineapple.

Heat vegetable oil in deep fryer to 370 degrees F. Using a small ice cream scoop drop scoops of the batter into the hot oil and fry until deep golden brown. Remove from the fryer, blot on paper towels, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with hot butted rum sauce.
