• 1 package yeast
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • Anchovy (at your taste)
  • Oil for frying
  • Confectioner's sugar


Dissolve yeast in 1/2 C warm water with a pinch of sugar

Set aside for 10 minutes to proof

Stir remaining 1/2 C water in bowl, and beat in the flour forming a soft dough.

Mix the very small pieces of anchovies.

Knead the dough for about 10 minutes by hand and 5 minutes in a mixer with a dough hook.

Put the dough in greased bowl and turn to coat. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1-11/2 hours.

Heat abut 2-3 inches of oil to 375 degrees.

Break off golf ball-sized of pieces of dough and fry until light golden brown.

Drain on brown paper or paper towels, and dredge with confectioner's sugar.

Eat warm.
