  • Zeppole
    Recipe contributed by my Mom Lina Parente
    Ingredients
    • 7 cups of flour
    • 3 eggs
    • 1 big package of yeast
    • 1 orange peel
    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 3-4 cups of warm water
    Preparation
    Grate orange peel. Beat the 3 eggs. Add yeast to 1 cup of warm water and mix in the 3 beaten eggs, orange peel, and 2 teaspoons of salt. Take this and add it to the 7 cups of flour and mix with your hands. As you are mixing continue to add the remaining cups of warm water. The dough should be soft and sticky. Once you have finished, take the dough and wrap it in a blanket and place it on a big pan to rise. Once the dough has risen take a fork and let the air out. Recover and let it rise again. During this time fill a pan with oil and heat it. It's hot enough when the dough drops to the bottom and comes right back to the surface. Take dough and shape as you like. Once the dough has browned you want to take it out and place it on a brown paper bag. Sprinkle with sugar or powder.
