Italian Struffoli Recipe



• 2 eggs

• 2.5 ounce granulated sugar

• 3.5 ounce butter

• 2 cups all-purpose flour

• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

• 1 tablespoon baking powder

• 1 liter vegetable oil

• 6 ounce honey

• 6 tablespoons powdered sugar


1• Break the eggs and whisk. Add sugar to eggs and mix immediately to prevent sugar from burning eggs. Bring butter to room temperature. Flake butter into the flour.

2• Add vanilla and add them to the sugar/egg mixture. Put mixture into a mixer and mix and slowly add the flour. Let dough rest in a cool dry place.

3• Roll out the dough into small quantities. Cut dough into 1/2-inch strips and cut 1/2-inch pieces from the strips. Place the 1/2-inch squares onto a baking pan.

4• Put vegetable oil into a large pot and bring to 350 degrees. Fry small quantities of the dough squares in the oil and when golden brown, place onto a baking pan lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil. When all dough is fried and let cool to room temperature.

5• In a saucepan, heat the honey (not to a boil) and add small quantities of the fried dough to the pan. Stir lightly with a large slotted spoon. Remove from saucepan and place onto a serving plate and sprinkle with powdered sugar
