Heart-shaped fritters, those delightful confections, are a testament to the marriage of culinary creativity and heartfelt expression. Picture, if you will, a perfectly golden exterior, its surface delicately crisped to perfection, hiding within its tender embrace a symphony of flavors that dance upon the palate.

The journey of crafting these heart-shaped fritters begins with the selection of the finest ingredients. Flour, eggs, sugar, and butter, perhaps kissed with a hint of vanilla, mingle together in harmony, forming a batter that promises indulgence with every bite. This batter, like a blank canvas awaiting the artist’s touch, eagerly awaits the transformation that will elevate it to culinary excellence.

Once prepared, the batter is lovingly poured into heart-shaped molds, each one a testament to affection and care. As they sizzle gently in the heat of a skillet or the depths of a fryer, the kitchen is suffused with the irresistible aroma of anticipation. The fritters slowly take shape, their edges turning a luscious shade of golden brown, their centers puffing up with the promise of decadence.

But it is not merely their appearance that makes heart-shaped fritters so enchanting; it is the sensation they evoke with every bite. As you sink your teeth into their tender depths, you are greeted by a burst of flavor that is at once familiar and extraordinary. Perhaps it is the subtle sweetness of apples or berries that tantalizes your taste buds, or the comforting warmth of cinnamon and nutmeg that lingers on your tongue. Each bite is a revelation, a celebration of the joys of life and love.

And yet, there is more to these fritters than mere indulgence. They are a symbol of connection, of the bonds that tie us to one another. Whether shared with a loved one over a cozy breakfast or savored alone as a moment of self-care, heart-shaped fritters have a way of nurturing not just the body, but the soul.

In a world filled with chaos and uncertainty, heart-shaped fritters stand as a reminder of the simple pleasures that bring us together. They are a testament to the power of food to nourish not just our bodies, but our spirits as well. So let us raise a fritter to love, to connection, and to the joy of indulgence. After all, in a world where anything is possible, why shouldn’t we celebrate with a heart-shaped treat?



  • 500g (4 cups) plain flour
  • 50g (1/4 cup) sugar
  • 10g fresh yeast
  • 1 lemon (zest)
  • 1 orange (zest)
  • 1 egg
  • 210ml (3/4 cup) of water
  • 4g of salt
  • 40g butter (soft)
  • Hazelnut cream
  • oil for frying
  • sugar


1. In a bowl add the flour, sugar, yeast, lemon (zest), orange (zest), egg, water, salt and butter and mix. When the dough begins to form, knead with your hands to obtain a smooth dough. Cover with cling film and let rise for 2 hours, or until doubled in volume.
2. Once the time has elapsed, divide the dough into two halves. Extend the first half and with the heart mold (mold size 10cm) make the shapes.
3. Transfer to the parchment lined baking sheet and pierce the center with the smaller heart shaped pan. Cover with a cloth and allow to rise for 1 hour.
4. Extend the other half of the dough and divide it into several parts. Spread the hazelnut cream on a piece of the dough and cover with another, sealing the edges well.
5. Cut out the dough with the heart mold and transfer them to the baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Cover with a cloth and allow to rise for 1 hour.
6. After the time, transfer them to the pan with hot oil and fry until golden.
7. Coat the heart-shaped fritters with sugar and serve
