Frill doughnut. Make frill doughnuts like this. Separate the egg whites from the yolk, pass through a strainer it, mix the whites with flour and some rose water, add some crushed sugar, crush these together and add some salt. Put butter into a pan and put it on the fire, then put a hole to the bottom of a jar, the hole should be the size of a pea. Fill it with dough, and once cooked, put it on a wood, leave one half white, and add saffron to the other half to make it yellow. If you're cooking for a prince or a very noble lord, put three into a plate and add sugar.
