Pairing a glass of wine with a bowl of pasta is a solid combo. But try actually cooking the pasta in the wine! That is high-level deliciousness.
These quick and delicious old-school Italian-style doughnuts can be made with any type of wine. So you can customize the taste to your liking.
These doughnuts were born near Rome in the Roman Castles. They’re probably the most known old sweets in Lazio. Usually they are eaten with wine. And yes, there’s
actually wine in the doughnuts as well !
The classical recipe for these donuts is 1 glass for each ingredient, and you need to knead the dough. I’ve tried this one, with less oil and sugar and the result is perfect, even better that the original recipe, but contains less calories and fats.
Note: the alcohol evaporates during baking, so these donuts are often eaten by children as well in Italy – dunked in milk.
