Gato cravate salé


  • 300 g of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of ginger powder
  • 45 g of soft butter
  • 115 ml of water
  • oil for frying


In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and ginger powder. Add the soft butter and mix. Add the water little by little until you get a soft paste that does not stick.

Divide the dough in 2. Spread the dough neither too thick nor too thin and cut into strips of 9 cm by 3 cm. Take a strip of dough and make a vertical notch in the middle. Take one end of the band and pass it through the notch to form a bow tie. Do the same with the rest of the dough.

In a bath of hot oil drop the gato cravate one by one and let them brown. Once the cakes are cooked leave them on a paper towels. Enjoy tepid or if you want to keep them wait until they are completely cold and put them in an airtight box.
