Elderflower Fritters Recipe

Serve this dessert on a summer evening.

Serves 2

Elderflowers with stems

2 egg yolks
1 cinnamon stick (optional)
2/3 cup milk
1 cup flour
Orange juice
1 tablespoon sugar
Icing sugar
Dash salt

1. On the morning of a sunny day, cut clusters of fully opened elderflowers, leaving about a 6‑inch stem. Refrigerate in a plastic bag until 1 hour before cooking.

2. In a bowl, combine brandy and cinnamon stick. Add and submerge flower heads. Let stand for 1 hour.

3. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, make batter by mixing together egg yolks, milk, flour, salt, and sugar.

4. Drain flower heads and shake dry. Holding each cluster by its stem, dip flowers in batter. Fry them immediately in 2 inches hot fat in a cast‑iron frying pan. (Fry up to 3 clusters at once.) Remove when lightly browned, drain on paper, and sprinkle with a little icing sugar and a bit of orange juice. Serve at once.
