After that peel the crust of the half lemon into the mixture. If you can use eco lemons that are not treated because most of the toxins stay in the peel.

Adding the Brandy to Fritule

The next step is to put 10ml of brandy or rum into the mixture. That is the key step since Fritule-s are being fried in deep oil and brandy will make them oil-free! Next put 2 large spoons of sugar, a bit of salt and one bag of vanilla sugar. Then mix all the ingredients manually.

Frying of Fritule

As we already mentioned the Fritule-s are fried in deep oil. Heat the oil, but it is essential not to heat it too much because then our lovely little doughnuts will become brown on the outside and still stay raw in the middle. You can test the temperature with the wooden ladle. Put it in the oil and when small bubbles start forming around it the oil is ready.

Before the frying process, stir the mixture again and then start. You take half of a large spoon of the mixture and put it inside the oil. If you use a large pot you will be able to put about 10 little doughnuts at one time. You should turn them several times before they are done. Then take them out and place them on the napkin to soak the oil from the frying process.
