  • 300 g of all-purpose flour
  • 0.5 tsp sugar

  • 25 cl of very cold lager
  • 1.5 l vegetable oil for frying
  • 20-30 sage leaves


  • In a bowl, mix flour, sugar, salt and nutmeg
  • Whisk in beer until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon
  • Pour the oil into a cast iron casserole if it goes on the stove, otherwise into a large saucepan and heat to 190°.
  • Throw a small piece of dough into the oil: if it sizzles and browns, the oil is hot enough.
