Have you had the scrumptious fritters found in New Orleans Square of Disneyland? Those yummy big balls of egg batter fried then coated with sugar served warm. Pair it with a tasty hot chocolate and it is a sweet tooth pleaser!
I found this recipe a few years back posted in our local newspaper.
Disneyland’s New Orleans Square Fritters (Choux Fritters)
1/4 pound butter
1 cup boiling water
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 and 3/4 ounces sifted flour
vegetable oil for deep frying
cinnamon – optional
In a saucepan, melt the butter in the boiling water; add salt and flour and beat vigorously. Remove from heat as soon as batter leaves sides of the pan. Transfer to mixer bowl; cool slightly and add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.
Heat vegetable oil to 375 degrees. Dip tablespoon in oil then in batter and drop batter into hot oil and brown thoroughly, about 12 to 15 minutes. Toss fritters in paper bag with sugar and serve hot or cold. Cinnamon may be added to sugar for variety.
