Bomboloni – small fried sweets filled with cream or jam. Gavrosh Gourmet presented them at the Sofia Event Center exhibtion.

  • 500 g flour
  • 60 g brown sugar
  • 70 g butter
  • 1 lemon
  • 100 ml of water
  • 25 g yeast
  • 4 g salt
  • 50 g powdered sugar
  • 1 liter extra virgin olive oil
  • Jam or cream

 Dissolve yeast in warm water, add 30 grams of sugar and let stand for a few minutes.

 Sift the flour into a bowl, even pour the dissolved yeast, salt, the rest of the granulated sugar, butter and started to knead.

 Grate the zest of the lemon and continue to knead until you have a dough elastic. Cover the dough with a clean tea towel and let rise in a warm place for at least 2 hours. After that, the dough will be doubled.

 At the end of the two hours for rising, place the dough on a floured surface and flatten it. Flour again and then knead the dough with a rolling pin to a thickness of one centimeter.

 With the help of a pastry rings, form some discs of about 7 cm in diameter.

 Put the disc on a floured surface, cover with a tea towel and let rise for another hour.

 After this time, pour the oil in a frying pan, heat it and then fry the bomboloni. If you notice that swells and turns on its own then it means that you can proceed with the fry.

 Let drain the oil on a paper towel, fill them with nutela, jam or pastry cream then sprinkle with icing sugar or cinnamon.

Bon Apetit!
