Fried Dough with Sugar and Cinnamon
Makes 1 Loaf
In the tombs of the Etruscans, early inhabitants of Italy, there are curious drawings of daily activities, including depictions of pasta making and bread making. One such bread was Schiacciata, a flat bread that today has many different versions, depending on where you are in Italy. In Siena, it is a flat Easter cake with confectioner’s sugar on the top; in Florence, an hour’s drive away, it is a flat pizza with herbs or onions. This recipe, an old version of Schiacciata, is made with batterlike dough and baked in a rectangular pan. It has a slightly sweet flavor and is perfect for breakfast or tea.
