    Wild yeast/lievito madre only!

    Bomboloni—Italian doughnuts.
    Jim Lahey’s recipe in the Sullivan Street Bakery Coookbook.

    Filled!
    Golden passionfruit curd, sweet yellow filled with Meyer lemon curd, raspberry w/cardamom and scent of peach essence, showered in 2-citrus sugar.

    I broke one unfilled to have a sense of taste, texture, and appearance.

    Images at Instagram, sorry i can’t attach from my phone.

    As always, justjoan’s “light meal” is ridiculous and I had seconds. I wanted 3rds but there would be no capacity left for the delicious sweets so I showed the same restraint a 6 yo kid has and waited.

    Thank you for hosting.

    I had a great time.

    Dinner was delicious! Thanks "justjoan". I am inspired to drag out my small cast iron skillet to make a feta cheese frittata for my own dinner soon. Lively conversation and great desserts.

    The bombolini were not commercially yeasted doughnuts. They were wild yeast/sourdough only.

    It was a one-off because she looks out for me and we talk a lot about this cake.

    That said if someone wants to make a birthday cake as an offering for the exchange I doubt we would ever get tired of that, so why not!?

    And, um, I won a 4H blue ribbon in the 7th grade (1972) in the North Georgia State Fair for my red velvet cake entry so this is a Dessert in my repertoire. I just added an inscription.... ❤️
