- 1 1/4 cup warm water
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
- 2 cups all purpose flour plus 2 tablespoons
- 1 teaspoon salt
- vegetable oil
- For The Syrup
- 3 cups sugar
- 1 1/3 cups water
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
In a medium bowl, combine flour and salt. Add yeast water and stir with oiled wooden spoon until a dough-like consistency form.
Cover and place in warm area and allow to rise for 1 1/2 hours, or until doubled.
Preheat vegetable oil to 375.
Spoon dough by the tablespoon into vegetable oil and allow to cook for about 2 minutes each side, until each side is a golden brown color.
Repeat with remaining dough. Drain on paper towels.
For the syrup:About 20 minutes prior to frying the dough, make the syrup. Mix all ingredients in a saucepan until sugar is dissolved on medium heat. Bring to a boil, then allow to simmer on low for about 10-15 minutes, until it become a syrup consistency. Do not stir frequently because the sugar will make the syrup cloudy.
Drizzle syrup over fried dough and serve immediately.
