DIRECTIONS

  • Place anise seeds and extra virgin olive oil in a pan. Fry anise seeds for about 30-60 seconds (Be careful since seeds will burn very quickly). Allow to cool.
  • Whisk eggs with sugar, lemon rind from the 2 lemons, anise extract, milk and anise seeds and oil.
  • Add flour and baking powder bit by bit until dough is firm and not sticky. (If dough appears dry you can add a little bit more milk).
  • Knead dough on a floured surface and make doughnut shapes.
  • Heat the oil and fry doughnuts until brown.
  • Drain and roll in sugar. Store in an airtight container.
