Its a very easy recipe and kid friendly too. But it never fails that even in its simplicity I forget how to make it.
I got the recipe off the internet, as well as the picture since I haven't made it yet. When I do i will be sure to post my own results. I have altered the recipe minimally.
2 cups sifted flour
teaspoon baking powder
teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 cups honey
multi-colored candy sprinkles
In a mixing bowl, pile the flour and make a well in the center of the pile. Put the eggs, sugar, baking powder, and lemon peel into the well and mix all ingredients thoroughly. Form the mixture into tiny ball shapes (or any shape of your preference), maybe half-inch in diameter.
Next, heat vegetable oil in an approximately one-quart pot, filling it about half-way with the oil When the oil becomes very hot, carefully drop the balls into the pan and fry until a golden brown. Carefully remove the balls from the oil and place them in a colander or on sheets of paper towels laid out flat.
Once the cake balls are cool and the oil has dried off, arrange them on a platter and cover them in honey. Then pile them up in a tree form and sprinkle colored sugar on them. Your guess will have great fun picking pieces off and popping them in their mouths.I would love to know if you made it and how it went over! Leave me a comment!
