Donuts with Sugar


400 g of flour

15 g of brewers’ yeast

Confectioners’ sugar

Extra virgin olive oil



Arrange the flour in a mound and make a well. Pour in the brewers’ yeast diluted in lukewarm water. Add a pinch of salt. Combine all the ingredients with the flour and mix to obtain a smooth and soft dough. Cover with a kitchen towel and let it rest for 1 hour. Make the ciambelle (like donuts). Fry them

in plenty of oil. Drain them on paper towels, turning them upside down. Sprinkle with sugar and serve very hot.
