Well, my fear of deep fat frying has been well and truly conquered by this Bake Along! And, can I just say, I'm so glad it was.
These were rather good, and even when they were past their best the next day, people gobbled them down, mighty quickly.
I ended up with a very sticky dough, and had to add extra flour in order to be able to roll it out, rather than spread it, but Gill didn't have that problem.
Other than the stickiness, these were incredibly quick and easy to make - I made them after getting home from work one evening.
I'd make again - perhaps for a film night, or similar?
2 tsp fast action yeast [they use 1tbsp dried yeast]
60ml lukewarm water
2 tbsp caster sugar
190ml warm milk
1 large egg
30g butter, melted
340g strong white flour
700ml [the volume required will depend on your pan, but you'll need the oil about 2 inches deep] sunflower oil for frying
100g caster sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
