The ” Crespelle”: Italian typical Christmas pancakes of Basilicata region


During Christmas time we prepare and eat these salt pancakes that you can use instead of bread during the meals or as snack:


500 g. of flour

20 g of olive oil

half a glass of milk

20 g. of brewer’s yest

water ( how you need)

a pinch of salt


Mix everything and let the dough rise well covered for 2 hours or more.

Prepare with the dough some little scones and fry them in a lot of boiling olive oil.

Eat them still warm if you want to taste their flavour and their softness.

From “A. Ciancia” primary school – Francavilla in Sinni (PZ) Italy
