November 11, in Italy is Saint Martin and in Sicily we use to prepare Zeppole.
What is Zeppole? It is a fried dough ball very soft inside and very crisp outside, that we use to roll in sugar or in honey.
Sometimes we prepare it also with anchovies inside.
And here my family recipe prepared by my Mom and my Aunt Rita
Here are the ingredients and the steps. You can find the video recipe in my Instagram page (my profile - highlights) or in my YouTube channel.
All Purpose Flour
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Place in a bowl the flour
In another bowl place a part of the warm water with the yeast
In another bowl place a part of the warm water with salt
start adding slowly the salted water in the flour, mixing
continue adding slowly the water with the yeast in the main bowl, mixing.
Add water until the dough become liquid
when the dough is smoot, cover it and leave raising for 2 hours or so.
warm the extra virgin olive oil in a deep pan until it become very hot and start frying the dough in little balls. It should be still liquid
at the end roll the balls in the sugar or in the honey
If you want you can fry some balls with inside anchovies.
