- 3 oranges
- 1 1/2lb SR Flour
- 1/2 pint Oil
- 2 tbs Aniseed
- 1 cup of sugar
- Golden syrup
- Hundreds & Thousands (small balls like sweets to pour over them at the end)
- White wine*
- Dry anise*
- The three items above and the orange juice should measure a total of 1/2 pint between them
Heat the oil, once hot remove from hob and add the aniseeds, once very cold, add the juice of the oranges, brandy, white wine and dry anise, leave the mixture to one side.
Sieve the flour and place in a large bowl and make a whole in the middle and add the mixture and sugar and start to fold into the flour until its ready to knead into a dough. (when the mixture doesn’t stick to the fingers and you cut the dough in half and doesn’t stick, then you know the dough is ready to fry)
Make small balls and roll between your hands until it looks like a long finger and make a knot. Once you have made all of the dough into knots, then you can heat the oil and fry them. Remove them and place them on a kitchen towel to remove any excess oil.
In a pan heat up some golden syrup until hot and runny, remove from the hob and insert the borrachuelos into the pan 5/6 at a time and cover them with the syrup and then place into a large bowl or container and add the hundred and thousands to complete the look!
