Fried carnival balls
RECIPE BY Jessica | Chef & Author
These sweet, deep-fried balls are a real highlight during the carnival season in Italy. Frittelle di carnevale are small balls of dough that are deep-fried in hot oil until golden brown and then rolled in sugar. Their delicate dough, consisting of flour, eggs, sugar and milk, among other things, makes them an irresistible treat. Raisins are also mixed into the batter to add an extra sweet note.
