Don’t let the yeast part of this recipe intimidate you. It is as easy to work with yeast dough as it is to make something using baking soda or baking powder. It’s all in recognizing when the dough is ready to work and cook with, which is fairly straightforward.

The recipe is made from scratch, which means the flavor will be really fresh, and the Ears can be served fresh and crunchy, almost straight out of the pan. They are usually sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon over an Ear brushed in butter. It is an absolutely fantastic treat. These treats are often found at fairs and markets, but if they are made fresh and from a scratch recipe, they are unbeatable as a treat. And they are not high in fat or sugar, all things considered. Do use the butter, and be sure it is butter, to brush these Ears once they’re cooked. It is only a tiny amount and dramatically adds to the flavor.

If you find flour sticking to your hands, the best solution is to plunge your hands in more flour. Keeping your hands covered in flour allows the flour on your hands to capture any moisture your hands are releasing and keeps the dough purer and cleaner. If the dough is very moist and super sticky, add a tiny bit more flour, only a teaspoon at a time, until you can handle it easily. But keep your hands covered in flour.Find out how to make this recipe and many others at the website, A Worthey Read, by following the link below.
