Recipe for MelomakaronaINGREDIENTS
2 cups oil
1 cup sugar
1 cup orange juice
1 cup fine semolina
1 kilo soft flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
Lemon and Orange zest
Simple syrup: (In a pot, mix together 1 cup each of water, honey and sugar and
bring to boil while stirring constantly.)
Preheat oven to 200c
- Beat oil well with mixer, then add the sugar, both zests, orange juice, semolina, and then, a little at a time, the flour mixed with the baking soda.
- Form the dough into small shapes, as the pastries will get quite big while baking. Make sure the oven is hot before baking, otherwise the pastries will flatten. Bake for about 30 minutes until pastries are firm and golden brown.
- When completely cooled, arrange in rows in a pan and pour warm syrup over them. Sprinkle with crushed walnuts.
