Fritule with lavender December 08 2016
1 whole egg
1 egg white
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp Vanilla sugar
180 g yogurt
¼ tsp salt
2 tsp flavoured liqueur (rum, amaretto)
1 tsp baking powder
200 g flour
1 tsp Terra Lavanda culinary lavender flowers
Lemon rind (optional)
Wisk together whole egg, egg white with sugar, vanilla; add yogurt, salt and liqueur, and whisk again.
Mix together flour, baking powder & lavender; incorporate into egg & yogurt mixture.
Fill a frying pan with oil, about two inches high (smaller pan will take longer to fry, but will save oil) and let it heat until medium hot (test: drip a small piece of batter into oil, if it starts frying right away, it’s ready). Keep oil at medium heat.
Take two tea spoons, drip them into hot frying oil; scoop small amount of batter with one spoon, round it up with the other and drop the formed small fritula into hot oil. Continue until the frying pan is 3/4 full, as fritule need space to rise and turn over themselves, once one side is fried and golden.
Place golden fritule onto a platter lined with a paper towel, to absorb extra oil.
Sprinkle some icing sugar over the fritule and enjoy while warm!
