ITJB Round 2 Week 11: Elephant Ears (p. 145) 7/7/12 - 7/14/12
These are absolutely not the Elephant Ears I grew up with. The Elephant Ears I grew up with were giant platters of fried dough dredged liberally in cinnamon sugar and served terrifyingly hot out of a booth at the local fair. They were awesome but not the sort of thing one would attempt at home unless one had a very large quantity of oil in a very, very large pot.
These, on the other hand -- these are exactly the sort of thing one might attempt at home. And so we will. Be aware that if you are using the blitz puff pastry there is an error in the recipe. The errata page is here: http://insidethejewishbakery.com/files/IJB_Errata.pdf
