Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons grapeseed oil 
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, plus more for rolling
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped, pod discarded
  • 1 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour 
  • 2 eggs 
  • Vegetable oil, for deep frying
  • Ground cinnamon

Directions

Heat a few inches of oil in a deep pot to 350 degrees F.

Bring 1 1/2 cups water, the sugar, salt and vanilla seeds to a boil in a pot. Add the flour and mix over medium heat until all the lumps are gone and the flour is cooked down, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer the dough to a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Add the eggs, one by one, until combined.

Pipe the dough in even lengths directly into the hot oil and fry until golden brown, 5 minutes. Roll in cinnamon and sugar.
