Carnival Elephant Ears
Recipe – Thermomix TM 31
– 800 grams of wheat flour
– 2 XL eggs
– 165 grams of anise
– 100 grams of cow ghee (you can use butter if you lack up the ghee)
– 200 grams of water
– 1 pinch of salt
– 3 Tbsp of sweetener for dusting
– Light olive oil for frying
Add to the TMX mixing Â bowl the ghee and the water and mix it for 10 minutes at 37Â°C, Â speed 1.
Then add the eggs, salt and the anise, and mix for Â 30 seconds speed 4, once done Â add half of the wheat flour and mix it for 20 seconds speed 6.
Set your TMX on dough mode for 2 minutes and add the rest of the flour through the opening in the lid with a spoon. The dough has to be smooth and should come off easily Â from the bowl walls.Â If not add a little more flour.
Remove the dough andÂ wrap it Â in a damp cloth, let it rest for 20 minutes.
After the 20 mins, floured an area to work (this will prevent from sticking). Â Knead the dough by hand for a few seconds to to take the air away.
Cut the dough into pieces and stretch each one of them Â with the roller (also floured), the pieces must be very thin, but they should not break when you took them to fry. While doing it, pleaseÂ prepare a frying pan with plenty of oil, it Â has to be very hot.
Fry the ears in the hot oil, then place them on a platter covered with towel paper, to take the excess of grease . Place them onto Â another platter. Make sure toÂ brown them while cooking.
Dust them with the sweetener and enjoy! Perfect for breakfasts Â !
