Notes

The sugar syrup should be bearably hot or warm so that it absorbs all the syrup. The colour adding is optional but I always love to add it. The consistency of the batter is important and the flame should be kept at a medium high flame to be nicely done. Correct heat is important that the insides also are cooked well. Adding lemon juice prevents the syrup from crystallization.
