  • Heat vegetable oil in a deep-fryer or large deep saucepan to 160C. Pipe 7cm-long pieces of dough into oil, using scissors to cut off each one (be careful as hot oil may splash). Fry, in batches, until golden (8-10 minutes), drain on absorbent paper, toss in cinnamon sugar and serve with spiked hot chocolate.
