The clumsy dance of the colours and patterns of life

Witness the clumsy dance of the colours and patterns of life, the sometimes-harmonic, sometimes-cacophonic combination of the silence and the noise all around, and the heroes and the helpless within.
Welcome to my little corner of The Mighty Interwebs, where it is not likely you will find anything profound (or even very interesting), but where you will find all manner of random. Life is a kaleidoscope of the weird and the wonderful, the awesome and the awful, the blessings and the bizarre, and the collision between them is what you just might stumble upon here if you stick around. Grab your favorite drink and come hang out with me if you dare.

Bing Cherry Fritters

Bing Cherry FrittersServes: 6

2 cups flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 1/3 cups milk
4 eggs, separated
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 cups Bing cherries, pitted
oil for frying
sifted powdered sugar

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon. Add the milk, egg yolks, oil, and lemon juice and beat until smooth. In a large bowl, whip the egg whites until soft peaks form, then gently fold them into the batter. Fold in the pitted cherries. In a deep, heavy saucepan, heat 3 inches of oil to 375F degrees. Drop a few tablespoonfuls of the batter into the hot oil and fry for 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and keep warm in a very low-temperature oven. Repeat until all the batter is cooked. Serve at once, topped with powdered sugar

Serves: 6
