Dessert Timbales

Yield about 3 dozen


  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Vegetable oil
  • Vanilla Custard
  • Assorted fresh fruits
  • Whipped cream (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium mixing bowl; beat well. Add flour, beating until well blended; stir in vanilla.

  2. Heat oil in a small Dutch oven to 375°. Dip timbale iron into hot oil; drain off excess oil. Dip hot iron halfway into batter; return to oil, and fry 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from hot oil. Gently loosen timbale from iron; drain. Repeat procedure with remaining batter.

  3. Fill each timbale with 1/4 cup Vanilla Custard; top with fresh fruit. Garnish with whipped cream, if desired. Serve immediately.
