These tasty tidbits are a wonderful change of pace from the usual donut bites! Traditionally, these fried bread pieces are plain and served with savory fillings, but a few recipes suggest that you serve them with honey. With a few culinary twists and turns, these easily became a delicious treat. They are yummy on their own and not overly sweet, and in the honey syrup— me-oh-my-oh—they are a sweet treat! Perfect for Chanukah or Rosh Hashanah. One quick reminder: make sure to allow 40 minutes for the dough to rise.

This same recipe makes great apple fritters. Peel, core, and slice three apples into 1⁄4-inch rings. Lightly coat in flour, shaking off excess. Prepare batter as directed. Dip the apple rings into the batter, shake off excess, and fry. Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar and cinnamon.
