"Sfinge" Fried Dough

The poor people’s dessert. This recipe is one of the simplest i have ever tried, yet it is so good that it is also fattening. So we will be making only a small portion to feed 2 people.


1 Cup of flour
2/3 Cup of water
1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of yeast

Pour the flour in a bowl and create a small hill with a volcano indent at the top. pour the 1/4 tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp of yeast in the crater. Add a Tbsp of water and let it sit for 5 minutes.
Slowly add the 2/3 cup of water and fold in the mixture and knead the dough with wet hands. The dough should feel sticky and pull like chewing gum. Keep kneading for about 5 minutes and let it sit under a wet towel for about 2 hours. I will rise a little.
Heat up 2 cups of vegetable oil in a 4 quart pot. when you see the oil start to move slowly in the pot, pull small (about 1″ size) balls and stretch them to a flat circle and dunk them in the hot oil, about 3 or 4 each time. Let it fry for 5 minutes until you see the dough turn golden brown. pull them out and let it dry a few moments and sprinkle confection sugar.
I have a little twist to the way I fry. I found it to be a boost to the flavor. 
I ad rough salt to the frying oil.
