Sweet Bread (Ciambellone)
Updated: Dec 15, 2022
4 Cups flour
1 tsp vanilla
1 Cup sugar
1 Cup milk
1 tsp cinnamon
½ Cup oil
1 tsp baking powder
Zest from 1 lemon, finely chopped
Garnish: milk, coarsely granulated sugar
Make a mound with the flour on a board, creating a well in the center. Using your fingers, begin alternating the liquid and other dry ingredients into the well, mixing until all the ingredients are combined, adding additional flour as needed and kneading to make a smooth dough.
Divide into 2 parts and shape into fat rings. Brush the tops with milk and sprinkle with sugar.
Place the coils on a buttered baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until golden brown.
