Preparation of the batter

Being the very delicate elderflower, I suggest you do not use a complex batter with added eggs or fats. The thing that is better suited to this recipe is the simple and proven batter with only flour and water, maybe use a whole seed meal to give your product a greater consistency and a slight crunchiness. doses? I'm sorry but you'll have to do by eye since every type of flour absorbs a different amount of water. No salt in the batter, so you can dust them once fried sweet sugar if you prefer, otherwise even slightly salted are exquisite.

Once the batter prepared, Put to heat oil in a frying pan, I use exclusively of sunflower oil for the preparation of this recipe, the seed variety or extra virgin olive oil have a taste too strong when compared to the flower gently elderberry.

As soon as the oil has reached the temperature of 150-180 degrees immerse the battered flower, holding it by the stem like a skewer. In a few minutes the battered elder flower is well browned. Leave it to drain on a paper towel to remove the layer of cooking oil in excess and sprinkle with the brown sugar or powdered sugar, depending on your preference.

To serve at the table can add the presentation plate some fresh flower from left, to beautify your presentation.
