Carnival Fritters
These fritters are a Shrove Tuesday Carnival specialty.

What You Need:
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 oz melted butter
  • 5 tablespoons cream or milk
  • 8 oz flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • Deep fat for frying
  • ˝ - 1 oz sugar
  • Icing sugar and cream

  • How To Cook:
    1. Mix the eggs, cream, salt, sugar and melted butter, then add flour till the mixture can no longer be stirred with a wooden spoon.

    2. Turn it on to a board and work in the rest of the flour, kneading till the dough is smooth and elastic.

    3. Cut it into 16 pieces.

    4. Roll each piece out as thinly as possible (the pastry ought to be as transparent as tissue paper) and leave to dry on a cloth.

    5. Fry these pastry "leaves" in smoking-hot deep fat, pressing them down with the ends of two wooden spoons, so that when the fritters are cooked, they have a dimpled appearance. (In Switzerland a special 5-pointed star on a long handle is used to mark the fritters as they cook.)

    6. Drain the fritters, dust with icing sugar and pile up 7 or 8 at a time. Serve with whipped cream.
