  8. Heat the oil in a frying pan or deep fryer over medium high heat, and deep fry spoonfuls of the mixture until evenly browned all over. Remove to drain on kitchen paper.
  9. For the ricotta mixture: Beat the ricotta with the icing sugar and anisette liqueur until you have a light creamy mixture.
  10. Add the dark chocolate, 60g of the almonds and candied peel and mix well. Reserve the rest of the almonds.

"I am of Sicilian descent and my Grandmother worked in a family bakery in Cefalù. That bakery is still in existence, but what I am looking for is a recipe for something called 'sfinge'. It is similar to a zeppole".

'U sfinciuni', or sfincione in ltalian, is a soft, thick, scented and tasty snack. If you visiting Palermo then sfincione is true gastronomic obligation.

It is prepared with a base of flour, combined with olive oil to which a condiment, typically anchovies and fresh tomatoes, are added having been blanched in oil and copious onions.

You will see them presented in round or rectangular shapes for sale on fixed metal stalls or from the small three-wheeled Ape vans beloved of Palermitani.

Sfinge is no real relation to sfinciuni so we are pleased and grateful, therefore, for a reply from one of our readers who clears things up. We quote:

"Hey there. I gotta tell you. The question about sfinge is answered wrong! Sfinge is different from Sfincone.

I know what she is talking about!! I am a Siclian and have spent time there. I make both.

As a child my mother made Sfinge. What you discribed was Sfincone. A sort of sponge pizza with anchovies, onions and a bread crumb topping.

Sfinge is like Zeppoli. It is a simple yeast batter dropped into fat, fried crisp and dusted with sugar. Some Sicilians even put a small anchovy in the middle it is a salty and sweet taste.

My father who is 92 and grew up there.. he likes his that way.

I would give you the recipe, but I only have it from memory. It is flour, egg, salt, sugar water and yeast. It is slightly thicker than pancake batter..when raised a good hour or two. Then dropped into hot fat.. about a teaspoon.. Hope that clears it up!!

Indeed it does and it's obvious the stray anchovy pulled us in the wrong direction! Always take great care with pesce azzurro.
