Zeppole are doughnut
at Carnival or
for Christams Eve lunch.
Making time: 15 minutes + 1 hour to stand
Cooking time: 5 minutes each
Total time: 100 minutes
Ingredients (15 zeppole + 3 fried pizza):
0.88 g (25 g) baking powder
35.3 oz (1 kg) flour
2 tbsp salt
Oil to fry
In a big bowl I put the flour.
I melt the brewer's yeast in mild water.
I add a tbsp of salt and I pour the mixture
in the bowl.
I add warm water,
the mixture has to be very soft.
I make a cross, I cover it with a cloth and I put it in a warm place for 1 hour.
I make a ball and I put in hot oil.
In some balls I add an anchovy.
I let them brown.
I need 4-5 tomatoes and 5 slices of mozzarella.
I roll the dough and I fry it.
I dip it in the oil and on one side I push it
down, so that I'll make an hollow, where
one minute before it's ready, I put a
piece of mozzarella and tomato.I dip it again, so the mozzarella melts down.
