Italian Fritters

Cut slices of very light bread half-an-inch thick, with a round

paste-cutter, divide them into neat shapes all alike in size. Throw them

into boiling fat and fry quickly of a rich golden brown, dry them on

paper, place on a dish, and pour over orange or lemon syrup, or any kind

of preserve made hot. Honey or golden syrup may be used for those who

like them.
