Deep fried. Dusted with sugar. What else matters?
1/4 cup lukewarm water
1/2 teaspoon sugar + 7 grams yeast
Combine the above and let sit for 10 mins until frothy.
2 cups plain flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 + 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup lukewarm milk
Optional: about 1/4 cup softened fruit, small bits. Sultanas, raisins, cooked apple.
Cinnamon/sugar for dusting
Whisk egg and sugar into yeast mixture.
Put flour and salt in a bowl, make a well. Add half the milk and whisk to smooth. Add yeast mixture and whisk to smooth, add rest of milk and whisk until smooth. It needs to be smooth and pretty runny. Sit bowl in warm place with cling film over top and let it double in bulk.
To cook: Heat oil (enough to deep fry) with hot plate on about 1/3. Dip spoon in hot oil, then spoon a blob into the oil and cook to golden brown. Just a couple of minutes should do.
