• 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  •  vegetable oil for deep frying
  • 1 cup sugar cane syrup
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


Beat the eggs until foamy. Add the milk and blend. Sift the flour baking powder and salt together twice. Add this to the egg mixture and blend.

Cut off a small portion about the size of a walnut and roll out on a lightly floured board until very thin.

Drop each piece into hot oil and give each piece a twist from the top with a fork and fry until light brown and drain on paper towels.

Boil the syrup until it forms a soft ball in cold water and drizzle over the fried pastries. While the syrup is still warm, scatter the chopped pecans over the pastries.
