These fragrant elderflower fritters are delicious and decadent.
400g Cottage Cheese
6 heads of Elderflower
4 Tbs Breadcrumbs
Pinch of Saffron
1/2 cup Milk
1 cup Almond Meal
1 cup plain flour
Butter or Coconut Oil for frying
Put the milk in a bowl and add only the flowers from the Elderflower heads. Leave in the milk for at least 1 hour, then strain and keep the elderflowers. I put the milk aside to use in baking.
Mince together the cheeses, breadcrumb, saffron and eggs, and put aside.
Add to the mixture, the strained elderflower, almond meal and flour.
Form into balls, then press down on them and fry in the butter or coconut oil until crisp.
Enjoy as savoury or as a sweet covered in icing sugar (doughnut style)
