Sailor's Knot Fritters
Melt the butter. Place the flour in a bowl. Beat the eggs with the sugar, vanilla sugar, rum, white wine and lemon zest. Add to the flour and mix with the dough hook attachment until smooth. Stir in the butter.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and roll out thinly. Cut into 1 x 35 cm (approximately 1/3 x 14 inch) strips then tie each strip into a double knot. Heat the oil to 325-350°F. Working in batches, fry the knots until golden brown. Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon, place on paper towels to drain and immediately sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
