Okinawan Sweet Fritters

Ingredients:

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup chunky or smooth Japanese bean paste
  • 6 cups peanut oil or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar (optional)

Preparation/cooking time: 15 minutes

Servings: 12 fritters

Directions

In a small bowl, combine egg and milk. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, brown sugar and cinnamon. Add the egg and milk to the flour mixture; stir until blended. Stir in bean paste. In a wok or shallow pan, heat oil to 350 F (175C). Drop batter into the hot oil by the tablespoonful. Fry fritters 3 to 5 minutes, turning often to brown evenly. Cut open one fritter to be sure the batter is cooked inside. Roll hot fritters in sugar or serve plain. Makes about 12 fritters.
