A very good dessert , suitable for when you have a craving for something syrupy and very sweet.
- It took:
- 200 ml water
- 100 ml oil
- a little salt
- 150 g flour
- 3 eggs husband
- For syrup:
- 500 ml of water
- 400 g sugar
- 1 rum essence (can be replaced with lemon peel, orange…)
The dough is like the eclairs .
Boil water with oil and salt. Bring to a boil, then add the flour, all at once and mix vigorously with a whisk, until the dough comes off the bowl. Let it cool a bit, then add the eggs, one by one, mixing well after each one.
The dough is put in posh with dui in the shape of a big star and the sticks are fried and fried in hot oil.
- I made half fried, half I spread the dough on baking paper and put them in the oven over medium heat for about 20 minutes. Definitely the taste differs, but they are just as good, and for those who don't like "fries" it is the ideal option.
Boil the water with the sugar. Boil for 5 minutes, set aside and leave to cool. When it has cooled, add the rum essence.
- In the recipe that Felicia sent me, they put over 600 g of sugar, but I thought it was too much for our taste. I think 350 g, even 300 g would have been enough.
The fried or baked sticks, depending on the option you have chosen, are placed in a tray, pour the syrup on top and sprinkle with fried and ground walnuts. Refrigerate the tray for 2 hours.
