How did you spend the Carnival Sunday? I brought my daughter to the parade, but there was no way to dress her up. Se didn’t want the indian dress, I had to remove her nose painted by kitten and finally she wanted to remove the crown princesses ! ….. in short, she says that next year she’ll dress like a sword .. ahahahha, but that fairy and princess. Well she will be a little Joan of Arc!
Here is ready ready for Mardi Gras! a nice tray of baked and fried Crumpets!
The same preparation can go in the oven or fried as you prefer. Fried, however, are coveted!!!
- 250 g of flour type 00 + 50 g for the pastry

- 100 ml of milk
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 2-3 tablespoons of liqueur (for me Marsala)

- icing sugar to taste
- Granulated sugar to taste
- Making the fountain with the flour sifted with baking powder already
- Add sugar, egg, butter in the center, liquor and milk.
- Mix and let stand for thirty minutes.
- Then take the machine for pasta and pull the dough up to No. 5. (or with a rolling pin)
- At this point, cut with washer rectangles and make a cut in the middle.
- Place half of the rectangles on a baking sheet and cook at 180 degrees for 10 minutes until they turn red a little bit.
- Remove from the oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
- For the other half, well heat the oil in a frying pan and fry a couple of minutes, dip in granulated sugar immediately.
