    strufoli al miele 006

    Today I decide to use like this  my dose of calories for lunch,  ……
    My grandmother used to say that the real strufolo, is done without a ”cartina” (yeast) and when it fries it  turns on its own, without being touched … and it’s true!

    Ingredients for about 25 strufoli
    360 g of flour
    4 eggs
    4 tablespoons of sugar
    grated rind of one lemon
    two tablespoons of rum and two of anisette
    4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
    frying oil to cook
    Wildflower honey for dressing

    Mix all ingredients well handling the dough patiently for at least 20 minutes. Let stand for 1 hour, then fry in hot oil until golden brown. Once dry frying, flavor with warmed honey.

    le cialde di carnevale

    Today with my mom, we cooked “LE CIALDE”.This is a typical cake of Marsciano (my town) for the Carnival. They are not very difficult to do but you’ll need two basic things: the electric iron to make holy wafers, and lots of patience!

    Ingredients for 50 waffles:
    500 g of flour 00
    250 gr. of sugar
    500 ml. Dry white wine
    250 ml. Of Vin Santo (sweet)
    a tablespoon of Anise seeds

    Mix well all the ingredients to obtain a quite liquid mixture. Heat very well  the iron, and put a tablespoon of dough. Close iron and cook for about 1 minute,  remove the wafer and when it is still warm, roll it. If placed in a metal box, wafers will keep crispy for several days. Serve with whipped cream: and be careful because you can eat a ton of it!
