ABC WEDNESDAY--"Z" is for "(almost)Zeppole"

These yummy long, puffy, sprinkled-with-sugar-if-you-like, doughnuts that this kerchiefed seller is about to pick up may be cousins of the Italian Zeppole, which are round and filled.

This Serbian version is called mekike (MEH-kee-keh) and if you click right here, you'll find a recipe for them, in Serbian only; couldn't find one in English.

The other lady is about to serve some tulumbe (too-LOOM-beh), which are very sweet/ You can find an English recipe for them by clicking here.


See other Z's at ABC WEDNESDAY.

Oh my, these both look delicious. Pastries are one of my favorites. Terrific photo. The kerchief woman has so much character in her face.

That's a woman who knows what she's doing and if it still holds the way to a man's heart is through his stomach she must be surrounded by huge numbers of men!

I would have a very difficult time not eating numerous mekike every day!

Are Serbian cops as addicted to donuts as American cops?

The police HATE that stereotype. However, they help perpetuate it when, as «Louis» recently saw 13 police cars and 5 police motorcycles are parked in front of King Donut at Third and King Streets in San Francisco!
Blue uniforms occupied every stool at the counter!

The mekike and tulumbe both look de-lish! And this is a wonderful portrait too.

I soooooo want a taste! My grandma used to make Dalmatian equivalent - fritule, with soured milk. Puffy, greasy, sweet. YUM!

PS - Tumbule look a bit like Mexican churros although probably tastier.
