Some history

These fritters originally come from the Savoie Duchy, and are generally eaten in February. They mark the beginning of Lent for Catholics, who indulge in one last treat before embarking on their fasts.


  • 1kg of flour
  • 20g of salt
  • 20g of baker’s yeast
  • 20g of baking powder
  • 100g of sugar
  • 8 eggs
  • The zest of 2 lemons
  • 1 tbsp. of rum
  • 200g of butter


Knead the dough with all the ingredients except the butter. Once the dough is kneaded and lifts easily from the bowl, add the softened butter. Cut the fritters. Cook in a deep fat fryer at 170°C until the fritters are golden.
