Step 1: Put water and oil to boil. Then, remove the pot from the fire and add the flour. Allow to cool.
Step 2: When the mixture cools nicely, add the eggs one by one and then mix with a mixer until mixture is smooth and homogeneous.
Step 3: In the meantime prepare the syrup. Put the sugar and water to boil.
