A tasty hot desert that is not for the diet conscious, This is my own invention as far as I can tell. Least as ways, I have never seen anything like this. The inspiration was one of my favorite expressions to describe not so good food : "I'd rather eat fried mud". So I deceided I needed to come up with a recipe that fit the name but would change my attitude towards fried mud
. This is it.
2 cups of all purpose flour
2 eggs room temperature
1 stick of unsalted butter
¼ cup milk
Blend ingredients in the mixer with the flat beater until it forms a firm ball. Do not over work the dough.
Form in to a nice ball and let rest under a bowl for ½ an hour
Cut the dough in to golf ball sized pieces and roll each one on a well floured pastry board until you can just read through it. Take a six inch bowl and press down and remove the excess so you are left with a six inch disk of thin dough. Set aside each disk and repeat until you have 12 to 14 disks.
The filling: 1 Entenmanns chocolate cake with frosting (yes, I know it is cheating).
Cut 2 inch squares of cake and place in the center of a disk. Brush around the cake with either egg wash or milk.
Place a second disk of dough on top and seal to the bottom disk. Roll the edges toward the cake to seal it and then cut of the excess, leaving about 1/3 of an inch of the dough around the edges.
Repeat until all the disks have been used.
In a deep fryer set to 350 degrees, place one of the dough/cake combos in to the oil, top side down. A large enough fryer, you could do two at a time.
Flip on to its bottom after the top half has fried to a golden brown. When the whole thing is golden brown, remove from the fryer and drain well. Repeat until all are done
Plate with a sprinkle of confectioners’ sugar, a little chocolate sauce and a sprinkle of fresh raspberries and serve.
It is yummy, I promises and will be well received
Serves 6 to 7.
