Make your own nutella-filled Italian carnival pastries at home with this week's video recipe.


Italy's sweet carnival treats are the best thing about this time of year, and they can also be made at home. Frappe are filled, fried pastries, dusted with sugar. See how it's done in this week's video recipe from Al.ta Cucina.- 260g plain or all-purpose flour (farina 00 in Italy)Ingredients:

- one egg

- one egg yolk

- one tablespoon of sugar

- 30g butter

- 60ml white wine

- Nutella as needed

- pinch of salt

- Vegetable oil for frying

- Powdered sugar to dust


- Knead together the flour, sugar, whole egg, egg yolk, butter, and salt. Add in the white wine and continue to knead.

- Roll out the dough on a cutting board so it is very thin. Cut into squares that are about 8-10 cm (2-4 in) in length.

-In the centre of each square add a heaped spoonful of Nutella.


-Close the dough forming a triangle.  To help the sides stick together, use your finger to add a little water.

-Fry in the vegetable oil at 170˚C/340˚F on each side until the frappe is golden brown.

-When they are ready, sprinkle with the powdered sugar and serve.
