2 eggs
1 ½ Tsp. sugar
1 Cup milk
1 Cup unbleached all purpose flour
2 Tbsp. melted butter
Shortening or oil for frying


Step 1

Gently whisk together the eggs, milk and sugar in a large mixing bowl.

Step 2

Mix in the flour until the batter is smooth and creamy. The texture should be like thick cream.

Step 3

Place your batter in a container that is just wide enough for the rosette irons, preferably not plastic.

Step 4

Heat your oil or shortening to 370° F. Once your oil is at temperature, place your rosette iron in to preheat.

Step 5

Dip the hot rosette iron into the batter and return to the oil to cook for  20 to 35 seconds, until the rosette is lightly browned.

Step 6

Lift up the iron and allow it to drain over the oil for 5 to 10 seconds. Using a knife or fork remove and allow it to drain on paper towels. When finished dust with powdered sugar.
