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!!!
Here is Carnival! Like every year it’s celebrated with pancakes or sweets, here I present the typical dessert that my grandmother made during Carnival, especially when there were so many people: The cicerchiata of Abruzzo. The Neapolitans Know this, for them it is called struffoli that they made on Christmas, while the Abruzzi calls cicerchiata, balls like chickpeas ( cicerchie ) assembled with honey.
I enjoyed it so much hat all the family help me, even my baby that funny making little balls , that’s a joy, every ball she was licking the whole hand … ahahahha that go well!
it’s nice because you can do various shapes, my grandmother often made donut and the recipe is easy because the grandmother’s recipes are all measured spoon, here cicerchiata of our family tradition:
