Both were fried at about 180C for 2-3 minutes, and came out looking crispy and delicious. Jane and I did the taste taste and although both were great in different ways we both plumped for the Donald Link recipe to go forward for tomorrow’s cook-off. They turned out much lighter probably mainly due to the increased baking powder, although I’m gonna reduce it a little as it did come through in the flavour a bit. I’m also going to thicken up the batter a little more it was easier to get a decent shape with the thicker Soul Food batter – Link’s ended up all shapes and sizes.
Just topped off a great day with a fantastic Goodnight Lenin gig at MAC, and now listening to the Water Tower Bucket Boys (thanks Gordon) as I ready myself for tomorrow…good times!
