In these days in Italy is “Carnevale” time, that is days prior to the Easter holiday.

During these days it is traditional to make “Cenci” or “Frittelle”.

Cenci are made of flour, eggs, sugar and grated citrus peel and they are little fried. The ladies of my aunt’s village, San Gusmè, every year make Cenci and Frittelle for the whole Village and also for the turists and people drop by.

Here follow I give you my recipe and the quantity I use for 6 people. This is what I offer as a dessert in the Cooking Classes I do during the winter season.

Enjoy !!!
