These are quite delicious but it took a little adaptation to make the recipe work. In Apicius we are told to make a thick porridge with water or milk and flour, then allow it to go cold, cut it into sweets and deep-fry them in oil with honey and pepper. Couldn’t be simpler, but a thick porridge of flour and milk clumps into a thick glue and doesn’t set sufficiently well to be cut cleanly.<
