MMMMMM!!!!! Omar came over the other day for brunch. Jenn suggested that it have an Italian theme…and that’s exactly what we did! These are super delish AND super light!
I’m going to post everything I made in 3 parts as there were 3 dishes.
We’ll start with dessert.
Zeppoles are basically the Italian version of a beignet and they’re super easy to make.
1/2 cup water
stick of butter
1/4 cup sugar
Rosemary leaves chopped
Put all those ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, take out the Rosemary sprig and add 1 cup of flour. Remove from heat. It should form and ball. Once it does, add 4 eggs one at a time and beat with an electric mixer. It will become a loose type mixture. That’s it!
Fill a pot with some vegie oil about 2 inches and heat to medium heat and fry those bad boys up about a tablespoon at a time. Dust with Powdered sugar and voila!!
*I added some fig jam in the batter as well and it gave it a nice sweetness to it.
'Til the next dish!!
