Sfinci of St. Joseph (Sicily - Italy)
(This recipe is by Nuxia)

The sfinci are delicious pancakes for Father's Day can not miss on our tavole.Le sfinci of St. Joseph are the sweet typical of Sicily. The word denotes sfincia sponge, from the Latin spongia, indicating the particular softness of the pancake.                                                                                               

Ingredients for 6 persons

500 g flour
3 Egg  yolks 
1/4 liter of whole milk (250 ml)
Sugar 250 g
Vanilla 2 packets
Brewer's yeast 25 g
Salt q.b.
Oil for frying to taste
Powdered sugar to taste

For the cream cheese:

2 pounds of ricotta
1.2 pounds of sugar
100 grams of dark chocolate (dropwise)
300 grams of candied pumpkin
orange peel, candied cherries


Crumble the yeast into a cup of warm milk, cover and let stand until foaming (it will take about 15 minutes).Meanwhile sift the flour, vanilla and a pinch of salt. Add the eggs and yolks, remaining milk, sugar and baking powder now ready, mix well until a smooth batter. Cover and let rise at least a couple of hours.Heat the oil in a frying pan and pour the mixture in spoonfuls, a few at a time.Fry until golden brown sfinci, drain on paper towels, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve, Or serve with cream. For the cream: Let the ricotta drain for at least 12 hours, so that it loses all her serum. Once dry, mash the ricotta with a spoon, add the sugar and let stand in refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours. Combine the chocolate chips. Add the chopped candied pumpkin and mix well. At this point, sfinci fill with the cream cheese and spread a little cream also externally, as in the photo, and then garnish with the chopped pistachios, candied orange or cherries.
