Ingredients

2 L vanilla ice-cream

1 egg

1 cup flour

3/4 cup water

1½ cups fine dry breadcrumbs

2 tablespoons desiccated coconut

5 cups deep-frying oil

Method

1. Make 6 large scoops of ice-cream. Return to the freezer.

2. Make a thick batter of egg, flour and water. Coat ice-cream balls with the batter, then roll in the breadcrumbs and coconut to coat thickly. Return to the freezer to freeze for several days.
