Yield: 1 servings
|4 tablespoons||Unbleached all-purpose flour|
|1 large||Egg; separated|
|1 tablespoon||Chopped fresh sage leaves|
|Vegetable oil for frying|
Sift the flour, salt, and sugar into a medium bowl. Add the water and egg yolk, and mix to a smooth paste. Mix in the chopped sage leaves, cover, and set aside to rest for 30 minutes. When ready to serve, in a small bowl beat the egg white until stiff but not dry and fold into the batter until well mixed. Heat 2 inches of oil in a deep skillet to 375 degrees over medium heat.
Drop the batter by teaspoons into the hot oil, cooking 3 to 4 cakes at a time. Fry the cakes until golden brown on both sides, about 1 minute per side. Drain the cakes on paper towels and serve immediately. Makes approximately 12 cakes.
