Key Ingredients

FLAVORED COFFEE
Café de Olla Instant Coffee
3 oz. Jar
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup NESCAFÉ Café de Olla Instant Coffee Beverage Granules
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 4 cups vegetable oil for frying
  • Sparkling sugars (white, green and red)
Make It
Step 1
Combine 1 tablespoon sugar and cinnamon in small bowl; set aside.
Step 2
Mix remaining ¼ cup sugar, flour, coffee granules, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
Step 3
Blend vegetable shortening into flour mixture using your hands until well mixed with no large lumps. Add water and mix. Knead dough for 5 minutes until smooth.
Step 4
Divide dough into 54 balls using a rounded tablespoon (about 1½ inches in diameter or the size of a large walnut). Cover the dough balls with a clean cloth; let rest for 20 minutes.
Step 5
Roll out each ball on a lightly floured board until about 4½ to 5 inches in diameter and 1/8-inch-thick.
Step 6
Heat oil in a large heavy skillet or pot to 350° F to 375° F. Deep fry fritters in small batches in the hot oil for 30 seconds on each side or until puffed up slightly. Remove and drain on paper towels.
Step 7
Sprinkle reserved cinnamon-sugar mixture over fritters as soon as you remove them from the skillet. Sprinkle with sparkling sugars, if desired.
