Wine doughnuts

Quick and tasty rustic Italian sweets


  • 1 glass of wine (I used a Nero d’Avola a sicilian red wine, you can also use a chardonnay – the taste will be slightly different depending on the type of wine you’re using)
  • 3/4 glass of extra virgin olive oil ( you can also use 50% peanut oil 50% olive oil)
  • 3/4 glass of sugar
  • flour to knead the dough (I used about 350gr)
  • a pinch of baking soda


  1. Preheat the oven at 180°C. In a bowl, mix the wine, the oil and 1/2 glass of sugar.
  2. Mix the flour with the baking soda and then add it a little at a time, until the dough becomes enough thick and silky to be rolled into cylinders.
  3. Pour the remaining sugar on a plate, and cover a large baking tray with the parchment paper.
  4. Roll little pieces of dough and shape them into doughnuts. Place each cookie on the plate with the sugar and coat it evenly, then put it in the tray and bake for 15/20 minutes. Cook until they starts to brown. Don’t overcook them, otherwise they’ll become too hard.
