Almond Fritters

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 1 1/4 C very fine, dry, white bread crumbs
  • 1 1/4 C ground almonds
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 2 1/2 C milk or white wine
  • powdered sugar for dusting

Beat together eggs and sugar until light and creamy. Mix together breadcrumbs, ground almonds, and baking powder. Beat milk or wine into sugar/butter mixture, and then add the dry ingredients gradually until you have a rich, creamy batter. Leave to rest for 2 hours and then deep-fry in hot fat, like fritters, a spoonful at a time. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.
