The donuts of water are a bakery product present throughout the province of Latina, in particular in Sezze and Maenza. Donuts are made with flour, water (hence the name), olive oil and a little sugar, and are characterized by a double cooking, first boiled in water then dried and baked.
Making these donuts is relatively simple, the main difficulty lies in the preparation of the dough, in fact this will be particularly elastic and must be worked for a very long time. In the past only the housewives were able to create a very thin dough. With their skilled hands and arm strength tenaciously kneading the mass of flour, water, oil and sugar. Now fortunately for us we are facilitated by the use of the pasta machine.
