Today, I was reminded it’s Martedi’ Grasso, Mardi Gras, on facebook. All my Italian friends posted pictures of the parties they had just attended and I felt left alone. So, I baked some deep fried goods.
1/3 cup of sugar
1 and 1/2 cup of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
3 tablespoon of butter
the zest from 1 lemon
vegetable oil (I used canola oil) for frying
powdered sugar to dust the castagnole once cooked
How to prepare the castagnole:
If you have a dog, he’ll probably wait patiently behind you, hoping for some castagnole to fall on the floor.
