These yogurt fritters have gone on the list of favorite Easter recipes at home. They are prepared in 5 minutes and in 10 you will have the snack ready, or breakfast.
You need nothing but a bowl and rods, a scoop and two teaspoons and you'll open the door to the fluffiest fritters you've ever tasted.
At home we prepare them all year round but this time is the perfect excuse to make them over and over again. They are soft and you can serve them with gloss sugar, cocoa powder and maple syrup are simply delicious. Accompany them with a cup of chocolate and you'll have at home the best excuse to stay.
- 300g yogurt
- 2 eggs
- 60 g sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 11g yeast powder
- 1 teaspoon citrus zest (serves lemon, orange lime or tangerine)
- 300g all-purpose flour
- 400ml frying oil
In a bowl combine the yogurt, eggs, sugar, vanilla, yeast and tangerine zest. Add the flour and a pinch of salt and mix well. Mix until you have a smooth handle. Let stand for 10 minutes.
Place a small pot or scoop with oil over medium-high heat. When the oil temperature reaches 170oC we start frying. We carefully drop a teaspoon of the dough into the hot oil. We repeat the process, but without filling the scoop. We'll work in ties of about 5 or 6 maximum.
Fry for about 4 – 6 minutes or until the fritters are golden. Shake the pan from time to time. With the help of two spoons we flatten the tips so that they are round.
We move to a plate with absorbent paper, and serve sprinkled with icing sugar, cocoa powder, melted chocolate or maple syrup.
