Have you ever made pancakes with flowers Acacia? This is the right time.
A few days ago I picked them up in the countryside in Treviso, away from the smog and traffic. I was surrounded by the white of the bunches and I sucked perfumes.
The recipe for these pancakes that I have written below, is a sweet lady named Vanda will never forget the smile he addressed to me every time that I visited. For some years now has left us ... but not the memories.
Le frittelle d’Acacia di nonna Vanda
Pick up bunches of flowers Acacia semi-closed in a non-polluted environment.
Then prepare the batter with the following ingredients:
- 2 eggs
- 5 tablespoons of sugar
- 2 glasses of iced sparkling water well
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- a pinch of salt
- half a bag of baking powder
- a pound of flour
Mix well with a whisk.
Once you have a smooth mixture immerse bunch of Acacia (without washing), and fry in hot oil or lard in good quality.
Then, after doing well on paper towels to dry the pancakes, sprinkle with powdered sugar and flowers of Acacia.
Did you know that these flowers are a symbol of hope of love? 😉
