Honey Curls (Diples)



  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 cups vegetable oil (for deep-frying)

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar


  1. Beat eggs well with vanilla extract. Add flour slowly, kneading lightly. Add the 1/3 cup oil and mix well.

  3. Drop into very hot oil in a deep fat fryer so that dough will rise properly.
  4. Drain on absorbent paper.
