Struffoli di Aquilonia


For the Struffoli:

  • 1 large egg
  • 0.5 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 2 ounces honey
  • colored sprinkles
  • oil for frying


Beat the egg and mix it with 1 Tsp of olive oil, the powdered sugar and the flour.

Mix well to form a small ball of dough.

Wrap in plastic paper and let it rest for about 20 mins.

Take a piece of dough, roll it on a wooden board into a long round strip and with a knife cut it in small Struffoli  of just less that 1/2 inch. Preferably roll them into small balls.

Make all your Struffoli.

Once all the Struffoli are made, fry all of them in oil.

Put the honey in a flat pan, warm it up so that it becomes very liquid and toss the Struffoli in the honey.

Fold the Struffoli until they are all coated with honey. Plate them and sprinkle them with colored sprinkles.
