TWD: Mrs. Vogel's Scherben

For this week's Tuesday's with Dorie recipe, Teanna of Spork or Foon? selected Mrs. Vogel’s Scherben. Which is fancy-talk for fried dough.

Yessiree, it's Friday. Not Tuesday.

Yep, it took me 3 days to actually deep fry these babies. Somehow, setting a pan on the stove, filling with oil, turning on the burner and monitoring the temperature on a candy thermometer, and then adding strips of dough once it reached 350 degrees seemed like this huge task.

It wasn't.

At all.

Nothing to it. Took all of 10 minutes.

A minute or two on each side. Sprinkle on cinnamon sugar.

Then powdered sugar.


Well, except for the crunching and munching.

Thanks so much to Teanna for helping me overcome my fear of deep frying.

If you'd like to see the recipe, stop by Teanna's site, or find yourself a copy of Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking, From my Home to Yours".

you make it sound so very easy, which is bad news because combining cinnamon with frying is one heck of a fierce temptation!
