With Richard Till
This will work with almost any cake that has gone a bit stale.
It's a really great dessert for summer barbecue evenings - a
barbecued dessert. Just give the barbecue hot plate a good scrape
start cooking the fritters. It's also a good way of cleaning out the booze cabinet. Soak the sultanas, raisins, currants (or any other bits of dried fruit) in a concoction of leftover liquor, before putting
in the fritters the next day.
1/4 cup sultanas (or other dried fruit)
1/4 cup leftover liquor
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 cup cream
1/2 cup flour
3-4 slices old cake, cut into cubes
butter, to grease the hot plate
Soak the sultanas, or whatever other dried fruit you have, in the 'old booze' overnight.
Beat together the eggs, sugar and cream. Add the flour and combine. Add the cubed cake and boozey sultanas (or other dried fruit) to the batter.
Cook spoonfuls on a greased barbecue hot plate. Cook until golden brown, turning once.
