Ingredients

For the Dough:
240ml lukewarm Water
300gr plain Flour
1 tablespoon Instant Dry Yeast
1 Egg
1 tablespoon Sugar
Pinch of Salt
240ml Sunflower Oil for frying plus 60ml extra oil*
For the Syrup:
300gr Sugar
480ml Water
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice

How to prepare

For the syrup mix the sugar and water in a pan and bring to a boil.
Leave it boiling for approximately 15 minutes until it becomes a little sticky.
Add lemon juice and boil for a further 5 minutes.
Leave it to stand allowing it to become cold.
For the dough, mix the sugar and yeast in a cup with the lukewarm water.
Sift the flour into a large bowl.
Pour the yeast mixture into the flour and combine using an electric mixer.
Add the egg and salt and continue to mix until you have a soft, sticky batter (slightly thicker than a normal cake batter).
Cover the bowl and leave to stand for one hour until the dough has doubled in size.
Heat the frying oil in a deep pan until it comes to a boiling point.
Using your hands make a small round ball of dough, dip a teaspoon into oil, place the ball on to the spoon and drop it into the bubbling oil.
Fry for approximately one minute or until it becomes golden in colour.
Immediately place the fried balls in the cold syrup and repeat the process using all the dough.
Leave the balls to steep in the syrup and serve them when still warm.
*Note: It is necessary to dip the spoon it into oil otherwise the dough will stick to it.
