This is one of those recipes that should never be missing in any self-respecting kitchen notebook. It is the Spelled and Corn Donut with lemon. Soft, fragrant, versatile, suitable for summers and winters, elegant dinners, and quick snacks. The common denominator will remain the goodness granted to the well-being that the stone-ground cereals from the LUZI mill guarantee and with which we will create our small, daily, culinary work of art. A work that, tasted, takes us back to Sicily, to the land of citrus fruits and acrid perfumes mixed with the sea.
We have never treasured it: we much prefer the simple genuineness of our tradition to refined and overly elaborate gastronomic creations. We have reserved our family’s recipes for all our best friends, you who are part of it. Of our grandmothers. Of the mothers to whom we owe not only our life but also our fulfillment. They are the ones who have guaranteed us health and good education, respect for others and for the environment. To them, we owe our training, our courage, our simplicity.
We dedicate this wholemeal spelled wheat and corn doughnut with lemon, therefore, to all the mothers who follow us and who love to feed those they love in the best way, choosing healthy foods, of vegetable, organic and biodynamic origin, preferring foods produced with eco-sustainable systems for the environment and for man.
Here is what you need to prepare this small, large, work of art from our best family tradition:
- 4 eggs
- 2 untreated lemons
- 120 grams of wholemeal spelled flour LZ
- 120 grams of wholemeal corn flour LZ
- 250 grams of whole cane sugar
- 80 gr of sunflower seed oil
- 1 vanilla yeast for cakes
The procedure is very simple. Separate the yolks from the whites and set aside. Beat the egg whites and in a separate saucepan beat the egg yolks with the brown sugar. Squeeze the two untreated lemons and add the juice to the freshly beaten egg yolks with the sugar. Add the oil to this mixture and continue whisking until you reach a frothy and soft cream. Slowly combine the flours and yeast, being careful not to create lumps and finally add the egg whites, mixing from top to bottom so as not to dismantle the mixture. Bake at 160 ° C for about an hour. The result is surprising.
And good appetite!
