Does this recipe contain natural ingredients? Yes, it does. Is this recipe healthy? Uhm… yes and no.
It is healthy if you don’t go to sleep after eating it (also if you don’t eat fried food one month after and one month before :)). It is not healthy otherwise, especially if you get addicted to it (warning: this is likely to happen!).
It’s Christmas time: my family and I cook together for what is going to be the big dinner of the year. In no other occasion we would be all together in the kitchen. In Campania, the italian region where I was born, many dishes are being prepared exclusively for this traditionally opulent festivity. In particular, there is no Christmas without Zeppole, the special treat we indulge in only once a year.
Zeppole are an exquisite result of a dough made with flour and boiled mash potatoes, the key ingredient to give extra softness to the batter. You can shape the dough any way you want. I usually opt for the ring shaped bagel, leaving just a bit of dough to create ball shaped zeppole to fill with Nutella or cherry jam. The extra ingredients are the care, the family reunion and all the sinful hidden tastings while cooking.
