Fried Dough with Sugar and Cinnamon
Makes 2 Loaves
This unusual and fun-to-make yeast bread looks more like a rustic cake with its baked meringue topping and covering of colored sprinkles. It is part of an ancient Umbrian tradition that involves a young woman about to be married, presenting this cake to her fiancé on Easter Sunday.
Alkermes liqueur, said to have its origins in the Renaissance, is the ingredient that turns the crumb a soft pink hue; it’s made from cinnamon, cloves, sugar, and cochineal. Alkermes is available in Italian specialty shops. Use cranberry liqueur as a substitute.
