  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 pinch salt, to taste
  • 2 eggs
  • 300g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  1. Mix creme fraiche with milk, vegetable oil, sugar, vanilla and salt. Mix the flour and baking powder and gradually blend into the mixture to make a smooth dough.
  2. Heat the oil in a deep-fat fryer or a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Form little balls with two teaspoons from the dough and fry in the hot oil until golden-brown.
  3. Pat dry on paper towel and sprinkle with icing sugar. Enjoy within a couple of hours.
