Fritule with lavender December 08 2016

Ingredients:

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)

Frying oil

  1. Wisk together whole egg, egg white with sugar, vanilla; add yogurt, salt and liqueur, and whisk again.

  2. Mix together flour, baking powder & lavender; incorporate into egg & yogurt mixture.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Place golden fritule onto a platter lined with a paper towel, to absorb extra oil.

  6. Sprinkle some icing sugar over the fritule and enjoy while warm!

Bon Appétit!
