Traditional Italian Doughnut Ribbons

By: Cooking Vacations Italy

This Traditional Italian Doughnut Ribbons recipe comes courtesy Lauren Piscitelli, the owner and chef at Cooking Vacations Italy. She says, "Here is our doughnut recipe from our Kitchen on the Amalfi Coast! Healthy organic flour and ingredients, baked, delicious and easy to make!"


  • 3 3/4 cups 00 flour
  • 1 pound potatoes
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 2 cakes natural yeast, 50 grams each
  • 1/4 cup milk


  1. Boil potatoes until tender (skin on). Drain and peal by hand.
  2. Pour the flour onto a work surface and make a well in the middle. Pass potatoes through a ricer onto the flour and mix potatoes with flour, sugar, butter, eggs, lemon zest and orange zest.
  3. In the meantime, dissolve yeast in the milk, then add to the potato mixture. Mix well and should make a fairly solid dough, not too soft. Let rise in a warm place for about half an hour.

  4. Roll out into coils and twist into ribbons. Set aside and allow to rise about 45 minutes.
  5. Lay on greased baking pans and let bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes until golden-brown.
  6. Toss with sugar and serve plain or with pastry cream and cherry- to taste.

These look delicious! What a yummy treat!

@OscarRobin, Flour is classified in Italy as being either 1, 0, or 00. These numbers refer to how finely ground the flour is and how much of the bran and germ have been removed. I hope this helps! --editors of FaveHealthyRecipes

@pat47 4360357 - We have made edits to this recipe to answer your questions. We recommend using slightly warmed skim milk for this recipe. Hope this helps! - FaveHealthyRecipes Editors

What do you do with the yeast and the milk? Do you warm the milk and disolve the yeast? How hot is the milk?

Thank you so much for your quick response!

@rsbadlander 0054450 - Thanks for your user comment, and I have updated the recipe to include the correct baking temperature. - FaveHealthyRecipes Editors

There is no indication as to what temperature to bake doughnut ribbons!
