Heat the oil for frying. You want the temperature to be around 320 degrees f when you begin frying. Note: if you don't have a candy or deep-fry thermometer, place the end of a wooden spoon in the oil and look for bubbles to form all around the wood.
Set up four different plates - 1 for the all purpose flour, 1 for the whisked egg wash, 1 for breadcrumb, plus 1 empty sheet pan or plate for the breaded cakes.
Firmly shape the mixture into balls, weighing roughly 2oz each.
Once all the cakes are shaped, dredge the cakes with the all purpose flour. Move into the egg wash and coat every side. Then, with clean hands, coat with the breadcrumb.
Re-shape each of the balls again.
Now fry at 320 degrees until golden in colour, drain oil and leave in a warm place.
