Prikle, in Split also called Fritule, is a festive Croatian pastry resembling little doughnuts. They are somewhat similar to Italian zeppole, but are usually flavored with brandy and citrus zest, containing raisins, and are topped with powdered sugar.
– 2 eggs
– 1 cup solid yogurt
– 20 Tbsp flour (do not overfill them)
– 1 small bag vanilla sugar
– 1 small bag baking powder
– 1 Tbsp grape brandy or rum
– 4 Tbsp sugar
– 2 handfulls of raisins
– 1 apple, peeled and grated
Mix all ingredients into batter. Add grated apple in the end.
Drop rounded half-full Tbsp of batter in hot oil and fry in a deep pot, 5 or 6 at a time, until golden, about 4-5 minutes.
Do NOT overheat the oil. Fry on low temperature. The fritters will tumble by themselves while being fried.
