30 g Compressed yeast; -=OR=-
1 pk -Active dry yeast
1 c Milk; lukewarm
1 tb Caster sugar
1 Egg; beaten
1/4 c Butter; melted
2 c Plain flour
1/2 ts Salt
Dissolve yeast in 2 tablespoons of the lukewarm milk. Add remaining milk,
sugar, egg and lukewarm melted butter.
Sift flour and salt into a warm bowl and gradually stir in mixed liquids.
Beat until smooth and continue beating for 1 minute. Cover with folded
cloth and leave in a warm place for 1-1/2 hours until batter doubles in
bulk with bubbles on the surface.
Stir well then drop teaspoonfuls into deep, hot oil (190+C or 375+F) - do
4 to 5 at a time. Turn puffs to brown evenly and remove with a slotted
spoon (each puff takes about a minute to cook.)
Drain on absorbent paper and pile on to a plate. Drizzle each layer with
warm honey and sprinkle with cinnamon. Serve hot.
