What Started it all:
Yeast syrup fritters(can be risen or puffed in the oven)

These delightful yeast syrup fritters are a perfect treat for any occasion. Light, fluffy, and sweet, they can be risen or puffed in the oven to achieve the perfect texture. This recipe serves 4 people.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 packet (2 1/4 tsp) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110°F)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk, warmed
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Vegetable oil (for frying)
  • 1/2 cup syrup (maple or honey)
  • Powdered sugar (for dusting, optional)


  1. In a small bowl, combine the warm water, sugar, and active dry yeast. Stir gently and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the warm milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour the activated yeast mixture and the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Mix until a smooth dough forms.
  5. Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let the dough rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until it has doubled in size.
  6. Once the dough has risen, punch it down to release the air. Scoop small portions of the dough (about 2 tablespoons each) and shape them into small balls or fritter shapes.
  7. If you prefer a lighter texture, allow the shaped dough to rise for an additional 15-20 minutes.
  8. In a deep frying pan or pot, heat the vegetable oil to 350°F (175°C).
  9. Carefully place a few fritters at a time into the hot oil. Fry until they are golden brown on all sides, about 2-3 minutes per side. Use a slotted spoon to remove the fritters and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  10. Drizzle the warm fritters with your choice of syrup and dust with powdered sugar if desired. Serve immediately while they are still warm and enjoy!

These yeast syrup fritters are a delicious and indulgent treat that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Whether you choose to rise them a second time for extra puffiness or fry them right away, they are sure to be a hit. Enjoy them with a drizzle of syrup and a sprinkle of powdered sugar for the perfect finishing touch.
