IngredientsServes: 8

  • 250g plain flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 475ml vegetable oil
  • 300ml honey
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 2 teaspoons icing sugar

MethodPrep:15min ›Cook:30min ›Ready in:45min

  1. Sieve the flour into a large bowl. Make a well in centre, and break eggs into it. Add salt, and knead until smooth.
  2. Roll dough out on lightly floured surface until 5mm thick. Cut lengthwise, into 1cm strips, and cut strips into tiny pieces 1cm long.
  3. With the palm of hands, shape these tiny pieces into balls the size of a hazelnut.
  4. Heat oil to 180 C / Gas 4.
  5. Drop balls into oil 3 at a time. Fry until lightly browned, turning them constantly with a wooden spoon. Remove balls and drain them on kitchen roll.
  6. Combine honey and sugar in saucepan and boil gently for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add fried dough balls, a few at a time, and cook in honey syrup, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Remove and place on flat plate to cool. Sprinkle with pine nuts and icing sugar. As soon as they are cool enough to handle, mould about 5 together in a cluster.


Strufoli will stay fresh for weeks if they are kept in an airtight tin.

This is basically the same recipe thats been in our family for generations...except we add 2 tbls. shortening, 1 tsp. vanilla extract, 2 tsp. baking powder and 2 tsp. whiskey when making the dough. Instead of forming the dough into balls we roll out the dough and cut it into thin strips. You can fry this or even bake it. Both ways are just as good! We coat it with honey and sprinkle with non pareils. We always make these for Christmas!-23 Dec 2008
