Morocco’s culture is a mix of Arab, Berber, European and African influences. The country itself is a recipe for a unique experience. While many people associate Moroccan cuisine with the tagine, and they wouldn’t be wrong, there are a variety of other equally exciting dishes including sweet treats. One such treat is the Moroccan doughnut or fritter, which is deep-fried and dusted with sugar. We add a sprinkling of 24-carat edible gold dust to ours.

Recipe by: GOLD Restaurant
Serves: 8
Difficulty: Moderate
Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes


T = tablespoon
t = teaspoon

50 g butter 100 ml full cream milk
100 ml water
3 t honey
100 g cake flour
4 eggs
1 L vegetable oil for deep-frying
150 g flaked almonds
Icing sugar to dust


Place butter, milk, water and honey in a pot on a high heat and bring to the boil.
Turn the heat to moderate/low and stir vigorously for 5 minutes until stiff dough.
Set aside to cool slightly.

Transfer the dough into an electric mixer bowl and on a low setting beat in the eggs one at a time. Shape the dough into walnut size fritters and roll each fritter in the almond flakes.

In a saucepan, heat the oil over a moderate flame and deep-fry the fritters a few at a time until a light golden brown and beginning to split.

Remove and drain on paper towel.

Dust with icing sugar and serve.

Tip: Sparingly wet your hands when making fritters to prevent the dough from sticking to your skin.
