Struffoli with Nutella®

Pills of pastry for your holidays

When you say struffoli you say Naples, Italy. What is a struffolo? Easy to say, it is a deep fried little ball of dough. But it doesn’t come alone, you have to stick it together with some honey to have the work done. A composed cake soft light inside, crunchy a crispy in the outer part. Can you imagine how great it can become topped with Nutella?!

3 h 20 min


  • 150g Nutella®

  • 300g flour

  • 3 eggs

  • 50g sugar

  • 70g melted butter

  • ½ teaspoon baking yeast

  • 50ml anisette

  • 4 tablespoons honey

  • 1 heaped tsp Nutella® (15g) per portion

  • 1 vanilla pod

  • a pinch of salt


  1. STEP 1

    Mix the flour with the eggs, the melted butter, the sugar, the yeast, the salt, the anisette and vanilla in order to obtain a soft and elastic dough

    Let it rest for minimum 2 hours and a half in the fridge wrapped in a plastic film. The longer it rests, the softer the struffoli heart will be

  2. STEP 2

    Take the dough and make many little strings of the same thickness than a finger

    Cut those strings into 2cm cubes and place them on a surface that has been dusted with flour

  3. STEP 3

    Fill a pot with abundant oil and heat it at a high temperature (170°C) without smoking though. Successively pour the cubes in to fry

    Remove them with a skimmer

    Drain them and let them dry on paper towel

  4. STEP 4

    Heat 4 tablespoons of honey in a pot on medium heat and immerse the fried cubes in.

    Remove them, make a crown of them on a serving plate.

    With a piping bag, decorate with strings of Nutella® and serve.
