Ingredients

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon whole milk
1 tablespoon margarine, melted
1 egg, lightly beaten
Vegetable oil
6 (3/4-inch-thick) slices fresh pineapple (about 1 medium)
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups Neapolitan ice cream

Preparation

Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl; add milk, margarine, and egg, stirring with a wire whisk until blended.

Pour oil to a depth of 2 to 3 inches into a Dutch oven; heat to 375°. Dredge pineapple slices in flour mixture. Fry pineapple slices in hot oil, 2 slices at a time, until golden, turning once. Drain well on paper towels.

Combine powdered sugar and cinnamon; sift over warm pineapple slices. Transfer slices to individual serving plates; top each with 1/4 cup Neapolitan ice cream. Serve immediately.
