1 tbsp vanilla extract

50ml cream

Cinnamon

Serves 34 Verwuerelter – Prep: 30 min – Frying: 4 min per batch

 

Put the butter and the sugar in a bowl and mix until creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat between additions. Add the vanilla extract and cream and beat again.

In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and a pinch of salt.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and work into a smooth dough.

Put the dough on a floured surface and roll out to a square approximately 35 x 20 cm big.

Cut the square lengthwise in half, then cut into 17 strips of 2cm wide and 10cm high.

Make a knot with each dough strip and set aside.

Heat the oil in a large saucepan or deep fat fryer to 180°C.

Fry the knots in batches in the hot oil for about 4 minutes, until browned on all sides.

Remove the knots with a slotted spoon and put on a plate lined with kitchen paper to drain.

Mix a bit of icing sugar with a good pinch of cinnamon.

 

After draining, put the Verwuerelter in a large bowl and dust with the cinnamon icing sugar while still hot.

These are best eaten on the day they are made.
