These delightful yeast syrup fritters are a perfect blend of fluffy, golden-brown dough and a sweet, sticky syrup. Ideal for breakfast, dessert, or a special treat, they are sure to be a hit with family and friends. This recipe serves 4 people.


  • 1 cup warm water (110°F/45°C)
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • Vegetable oil (for frying)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  1. In a small bowl, combine warm water, active dry yeast, and sugar. Stir gently and let sit for about 5-10 minutes, until the mixture becomes frothy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour and salt.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the milk and egg.
  4. Pour the yeast mixture and the milk-egg mixture into the flour. Stir until a dough forms.
  5. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 5 minutes, until smooth and elastic.
  6. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
  7. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, water, and honey.
  8. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved.
  9. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 10 minutes, until it thickens slightly.
  10. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract and lemon juice. Set aside to cool.
  11. Punch down the risen dough and divide it into small balls (about the size of a golf ball).
  12. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large, heavy-bottomed pot to 350°F (175°C).
  13. Fry the dough balls in batches, turning occasionally, until they are golden brown and cooked through (about 3-4 minutes per batch).
  14. Use a slotted spoon to remove the fritters from the oil and drain on paper towels.
  15. While the fritters are still warm, dip them into the syrup, ensuring they are well coated.
  16. Place the coated fritters on a wire rack to allow any excess syrup to drip off.

Enjoy your yeast syrup fritters warm, perhaps with a cup of tea or coffee. These fritters are best eaten fresh but can be stored in an airtight container for a day or two. Treat yourself and your loved ones to this sweet and fluffy delight!
