- ½ Kg wheat flour
- ½ mug of sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1½ glass of water (not too large)
- Zest of 2 lemons
- 2 spoons (soup spoons) baking powder
- ½ mug of vegetable oil
Whisk the 2 eggs with the sugar, then add the water, the oil and mix well. Add the lemon zest, the baking powder and the flour. Mix everything until homogeneous and let it rest in the bowl for 30 minutes to prove. With the rolling pin roll the dough (always with flour on the working surface) and cut small squares and then cut a whole in the middle of the square. Fry the squares until golden on both sides and soft inside. Remove with the slotted spoon and sprinkle with brown sugar.
