Title: Chanukah pastry puffs
Yield: 6 Servings
1 1/4 Cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 Teaspoons baking powder
2 lg Eggs
3 tb Granulated sugar
1/4 c Vegetable oil
1/4 c Water or milk
1/4 ts Salt
1 ts Vanilla extract
5 c Oil, for frying, more may be
-sifted, for sprinkling
These are made by Israeli cooks as a quick substitute for
yeast-leavened doughnuts. They are ready in minutes & taste good, but
are not as light as the yeast version.
Sift flour with baking powder. Combine eggs, sugar, oil, water or
milk, salt & vanilla in a bowl & whisk until smooth. Add flour
mixture & mix to a smooth, thick batter.
Heat oil to 350° or until it bubbles gently around a piece of dough
added to it. Slide mixture gently into oil by rounded tablespoons for
large ones or by teaspoons for small ones. If mixture doesn't easily
come off the spoon, dip another spoon in the oil & use it to push the
dough off. Fry 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
Drain on paper towels.
Serve hot or warm, sprinkled with confectioners' sugar.
