Sweet Milk Fritters (Latte Dolce Fritto)

Soft and warm, these bite-sized milk fritters are quite comforting.


  • 4 cups milk
  • 5 oz all-purpose flour
  • 5 oz sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 lemon zest
  • 3 ½ oz breadcrumbs
  • extra virgin olive oil to taste
  • confectioners sugar to taste


In a small saucepan, slowly add milk to the flour, stirring with a wooden spoon and making sure that the mixture doesn’t clump.

Then place the pan on the heat.

Once the milk begins to boil, add the sugar, lemon peel and 4 eggs, previously beaten with a fork.

Stir and lower the heat to the minimum.

Let cook, continuing to stir, until you have a fairly dense cream.

Remove the pan from the heat, remove the lemon peel and spread the cream across a large plate greased with olive oil. Let cool.

Once the cream has cooled and is fairly solid, cut into equal sized pieces.

Dip the pieces of cream in a bowl of beaten egg yolks.

Then dust with breadcrumbs and fry in boiling olive oil until golden.

Remove using a skimmer and place on a plate lined with paper towels.

Dust with powdered sugar and serve.
