80 g butter
1/2 C (125 ml) milk
1/2 C (125 ml) water
Seeds from 1 vanilla pod
1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) castor sugar
1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) fine salt
1 ¾  C (430 ml) cake flour
4 large eggs
Oil, for deep-frying

Honey glaze
1 C (250 ml) icing sugar
2 Tbsp (30ml) honey
1 tsp (5 ml) milk

Place the butter, milk, water and vanilla in a saucepan. Heat gently until the butter has melted and then bring it up to a gentle boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the sugar, salt and flour and beat with a wooden spoon until combined and it forms a smooth batter. Place the batter back onto the heat and keep stirring while cooking for a further 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat and beat in the first egg. Keep stirring until the whole egg has been absorbed. Repeat the process with the other eggs. Allow the mixture to cool down for 30 minutes. Place the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle.
Heat the oil for deep-frying. Cut a piece of baking paper that is about the size of your hand. Spray it with cooking spray and then gently pipe a ring (with about a 5cm diameter) onto the baking paper. Once the oil is hot, gently slide the pastry ring from the paper into the hot oil. Fry for 2–3 minutes until the cruller is golden and crisp. Drain on paper towel. Repeat with the rest of the pastry.

Honey glaze
Mix everything together. Dip the crullers, while still hot, into the glaze and serve.
