Hey guys! Today I have a recipe for you for delicious fried acacia flowers.This is a really simple recipe that will surely appeal to everyone.
And it will surprise your guests! Especially when it is warm and so crunchy! I discovered the recipe for this dessert by accident, when I saw these beautifully fragrant flowers during a walk and remembered that they were edible. a quick look at the internet convinced me to pick a few twigs and buy some flour on my way home. It is wonderful that while hiking in the woods and meadows surrounding the city, you can collect so many good things: herbs, flowers, mushrooms and immediately make a delicious and healthy meal or a care product from them. The crispy, fried flowers are sweet and delicious. Please see my recipe.
Recipe for fried acacia flowers
- fresh acacia flowers, about 10 pieces
- wholemeal or coconut flour
- water (sparkling and cold)
- coconut oil for frying
- pinch of salt
- vanilla or cane sugar
Wash the flowers thoroughly and drain them from the water.
Now we prepare a pancake dough from flour, salt, water.
We add enough flour to make it quite rare. It is best if the water is carbonated and cold, then the finished flowers will be more crunchy.
Now frying: heat the oil in a pan, dip the flowers into the dough one by one and drain for a few seconds. Next, fry for a while on each side. We fry literally a few minutes.
When the flowers are golden brown it is a sign that they are ready.
We drain them thoroughly on a paper towel.
The flowers are ready to serve, but it’s best to eat them straight away when they are warm and fragrant. We whisk the sugar and eat it.
You can also do, like I did here, make rounder pancakes with dough and flowers – they are easier to fry and require a lot less fat.
My serving suggestion is Greek yoghurt for pouring over and vanilla sugar for sprinkling on top.
Remember that …
We always collect flowers (as well as herbs, mushrooms, etc.) somewhere outside the city center, preferably in the countryside, never on the main road.
Not only acacia …
What other flowers can we fry? We can also use other types of edible flowers in the same recipe:
- white lilac
- white acacia
