Bimuelos or Zalabia
Recipe Ingredients:
  • Sugar Syrup
  • 5 Cups Sugar
  • 2 Cups Water
  • Juice Of 1/2 Lemon
  • 1 Tbsp Rose Or Orange Blossom Water
  • Dough
  • 2 Tsp Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 Tsp Sugar
  • 3 Cups Warm Water
  • 3 1/3 Cups Flour
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt

Light Vegetable Oil For Deep Frying

Syrup: Simmer the sugar, water and lemon juice for 15 minutes or until thick enough to coat a spoon. Add the rose or orange blossom water and simmer a few seconds longer; cover and chill.

Dough: Dissolve the yeast and sugar in about 1/2 cup warm water; let stand 10-15 minutes or until it froths. Put the flour in a large bowl; mix in the salt and yeast mixture. Stir in the remaining water gradually and beat vigorously for about 10 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Cover with a damp cloth and leave to rise in a warm place for at least 1 hour. Beat the batter once more and let it rise again.

Make the fritters in batches. Put balls of dough by the teaspoon or tablespoon into 1- 1/2 inches of sizzling oil and fry until puffed, crisp and golden, turning them to brown evenly. You may find it easier if you dip the spoon in oil so that the batter rolls of easily. Lower the heat a little to give the fritters time to get done inside before they are too brown. The batter is light and produces irregular, rather than perfectly round shapes. If the oil is not hot enough to begin with, the batter tends to flatten out.

Lift the fritters out with a slotted spoon, drain on paper towels and dip them in the cold syrup for a few seconds (you may let them soak in the syrup a little longer).
