Greek Honey Fritters Tiyanites
6 servings scale / convert
4 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 cup brandy
Corn oil for deep frying
1 cup flavoured clear honey
1 dash cinnamon
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. water, about
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add just enough water to form a smooth thick batter. Then blend in lemon juice and brandy. Allow batter to stand for 15 minutes.
Preheat deep fryer to 325 F. or heat oil in a deep saucepan until it begins to smoke.
Drop batter, 1 tsp. at a time, into oil, cooking 3 fritters at once. When fritters swell and turn golden brown remove and drain on paper towels in a warm oven.
Pour honey into an enameled saucepan, add cinnamon, lemon juice and enough warm water, about 2 Tbsp. to form a syrup. Boil for 5 minutes.
Arrange fritters on a warm platter, pour a little honey syrup on each one and sprinkle with walnuts. Serve at once. Serves 6 or more.
From the Kitchens of the World A Canadian Feast
The Greeks are very proud of their honey, particularly the kind flavoured by the nectar from wild thyme. A wide selection of flavoured honey is available in specialty and health stores.
