How to make Italian Frittelle (baked sweet little flatbreads), I have - how could it be otherwise - learned from my dear, Sicilian mother in law.

It is prepared a pizza dough:


  • 1 kg of flour
  • 1 cube of yeast or 2 sachets of dry yeast
  • about 600 ml of water
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2-3 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tsp salt

Of course you can halve the amount, as there are a few more.


  1. Mix the ingredients, knead them, let them cover in a warm place and then tear small pieces from the gone part. Express them to saucer-sized pancakes (not too thin, otherwise they will burst in the oil).
  2. Heat the oil and put the flatbread into the hot fat (depending on the size of the fryer, use only 1 - max. Goes fast.
  3. Then degrease in kitchen paper and provide a plate with cinnamon and sugar, in which the pancakes are rolled.
