Pour maple syrup or elderberry syrup, made from frozen elderberries, over these. Unbelievable.
1 quart elderberry blossoms, with stems
1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
oil or fat for deep frying
Wash and gently dry blossoms. Sift dry ingredients together. Beat together egg and milk and beat into dry ingredients. Heat oil 1-inch deep in skillet. Dip blossoms into batter, holding them by stems, and drop into oil. Fry until golden. Drain and serve hot with syrup.
