Ingredients for Underwear

  • 2 small eggs
  • 500 g of wheat flour
  • A bit of salt
  • 100 g of butter
  • 120 g icing sugar
  • The zest of 1 lemon, an orange or 2 tangerines (to your liking)
  • 200 ml of warm water
  • sugar and cinnamon to taste
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (for frying the ears)

How to make flipped underwear


Wash the fruit you chose to flavor your ears: lemon, orange or tangerine. Then grate and reserve.

In a large bowl, pour the warm water, a pinch of salt, the previously melted butter, zest, sugar and eggs.


Beat until we have a cream without lumps. Then add the wheat flour little by little, mixing it first with sticks and then by hand.


Knead until you have a manageable, fatty dough. Let it rest for an hour. The next step is to stretch the dough well and cut the dough into rectangles. It is also necessary to make a cut in half to be able to make the turn. Hence the name underwear turned.


Place a skillet with plenty of extra virgin olive oil and heat over medium-low heat. Add one by one to the skillet and when it is golden, turn it over.

Wrapping Up

Remove from heat, place on a paper towel to remove excess oil. Finally, roll each underwear upside down in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. The result is really delicious.
