Whoosie-whatsit?? I was wondering when someone would have us make these little bits of deep-fried goodness with the crazy name. Then along comes Teanna of Spork or Foon? to banish our fears of frying.
Little strips of fried dough, scherben are easy to make. They don’t taste like much naked, but if you toss them in cinnamon sugar when they are just out of the oil and then sprinkle them with 10x, yeah, they’re pretty addictive…which is good, because if you live in an apartment where the windows don’t open and the stovetop doesn’t vent to the outside, you will be reminded of your frying escapades for days to come.
Haha I am suffering the same problem from the oil. Sadly, when I chose this, I had never fried anything, so I had no idea about the smell it would leave! Oof! Thanks for frying along with me this week!
They look beautiful! My vanilla-scented candle did a fairly good job with the grease problem, I just kept it burning and everything smelled like vanilla and powdered sugar…what’s not to love about that??? Yours look wonderful, and I know my guys are going to want these again very soon.
Stephanie – I was looking for the original Scherben picture to include it in my blog for giving a picture how they should look like. But I dind’t find it in a reasonable time. Your Scherben just look perfect so I “borrowed” your picture (for sure I mentioned the source!) and hope it is ok. If not – just tell me and I delete it by now!
Yes, the smell – the horrible smell of oil that lingers for days. Definitely the worst part of this experience for me because otherwise these treats were delicious. Great shot of your scherben – they’re perfect!
