Muzemandeln is a deepfried pastry coated with confectioners sugar, which is traditionally served during the carnival season.
The carnival season starts on 11.11. at 11:11 and ends on ash wednesday. The pastry is named after almonds becuase they look like them ("Mandel" is almond in german).
Here's the recipe:
375 g of wheat flour
150 g of magarine
3 generous tablespoons of chickpea flour
aprox. 3/4 cup of firm tofu, mashed with a fork
3 tablespoons of sugar
1 tablespoons of neutral tasting vinegar
2 tespoons of baking powder
falvour of your choice (vanilla, rum or else, i didn't use a falvour because you know 1910...)
canola oil for deepfrying
about 1/2 of confetioners sugar for coating
1. Knead a firm dough out of the irgendients for the dough.
2. Let it rest in the fridge for about one hour.
3. Roll it out as thick as a finger and take a tablespoon to could out almond shaped pastries.
4. Heat some canola oil inside of a falt pot or a pan and deepfry each side of the muzemandeln until it is golden brown. (This might take just a few seconds so be careful not to burn them.)
5.Coat with confectioners sugar when they are still warm and let them cool before eating.(Ok, they are great when piping hot and I know you're inpatient but to much of warm pastry will cause stomach pain.)
