1 packet vanilla baking powder
zest of one lemon
In a bowl whip the eggs with the sugar until peaks form.
Add the lemon zest, a pinch of salt, the milk and fold in (you can also add a drop of aniseed liqueur or rum).
Sift together the flour and baking powder and fold into the mixture. The mixture is ready. Leave to rest, covered, for half an hour.
Heat the oil, shape the dough into balls and drop in. The fritters are ready as soon as they turn golden.
Serve warm, dusted in plenty of icing sugar.
