In Italy we do celebrate Carnival (Carnevale) three weeks or so before Easter. It’s a lot of fun for the kids, they can dress up with costumes and they enjoy the parade with the giant Carnival floats. It’s a very festive celebration and, of course, we have special sweets just for Carnival: frittelle and frappole. Frittelle are Venetian fried doughnuts served during Carnival, they are round pastries, yummy!! Andrea from DifferentTaste (check out his recipe channel, his videos are enchanting! http://www.youtube.com/user/EnjoyDifferentTaste?feature=watch) came to Los Angeles to visit the TasteMade studios and we had fun cooking together some Italian/American sweets: we decided to create a fun colored Carnival party sweet compilation. Frittelle, Frappole, m&m cookies and homemade pancakes with confetti!
Let’s start with the Frittelle recipe.
