How to make it
- Make the syrup first:
- Heat sugar and water over medium heat till sugar is dissolved, then boil for 5 minutes add the lemon juice and let it cool. Syrup will thicken while cooling.
- In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, bring butter and water to a running boil.Pour the flour mixture all in one go and stir using a wooden spoon till it form a ball shape. Turn the dough on a clean bowl and cool for 15 minutes.
- Mix in the eggs one at a time stirring well after each addition. Add the vanilla and stir again.
- Fill the dough in a piping bag fitted with a nozzle of the shape you desire. Or you can drop a small amount of the batter in the oil using a teaspoon.
- Get the oil to the frying point over medium heat, drop 5cm log from the piping bag into the hot oil. You can use a scissors to cut the end of the log if it sticks to the piping bag. Or just use the teaspoon and drop batter gently in the oil. Watch carefully.
- Fry for 3 minutes on each side till you reach a deep golden brown. Take out from the oil and drain for 2-3 seconds, immediately dip the fritters in the cooled syrup for 1 minute only and take them out. Serve warm or cold.
- You can also omit dipping them in syrup if you don’t like that much sweet taste,only dust them with powdered sugar after they are drained from oil.

I adore sweet fried fritters, and the glaze is absolutely sublime :) In Scotland, I used to get a yeast version of these, very airy, deep-fried (like everything else there!) and dipped in the sugar-syrup glaze. Very addictive! Thanks for posting (yet...morekukla in Barrie, Ontario loved it
