These 'Ballymaloe Balloons' were originally created by legendary Myrtle
Allen of Ballymaloe House. They have since made their way into to both Darina
and Rachel Allen's kitchens + cookery book repertoires and now my kitchen too!
They are quick and easy to make as they don't include yeast so no need to raise
dough, plus you don't need a deep fryer, you can simply use a frying pan and
flip them when golden. Roll em' in sugar & cinnamon and serve immediately.
Heat a pan to 190 degrees celsius
Mix dry ingredients
Add milk to ingredients gradually until thick batter
When oil is hot in pan, take dessertspoonful of mixture and place in oil. Fry
until golden brown (4-5 minutes).
Drain on kitchen paper and toss in caster sugar ( I mix cinnamon into my sugar)
