Method

Pre-heat fryer. Mix the crème fraiche and lemon juice together, then cover and keep chilled until required. Make up the KNORR Vegetable Jelly Bouillon and allow to cool.

2. Place the water, Meadowland Professional and flour to a saucepan then bring to the boil then beat in the flour with a wooden spoon until smooth, or until the mixture comes away from the side of the pan.

3. Remove the pan from the heat and beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating well before adding the other egg then stir in the crabmeat until well combined.

4. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag and pipe 1.5cm/½in long sections into the oil and fry for 1-2 minutes or until golden-brown and crisp. Remove the beignets from the pan with a slotted spoon, set aside to drain on kitchen paper to drain any excess oil.
