Sweet Bomboloni Italian Doughnuts with Limoncello Thermomix

You can call them Krapfen or Sweet Bomboloni, but the thing is the same.

This is a very tasty recipe created by Maria Gabriella. Actually, these bomboloni are the sweet version of the savoury bomboloni recipe I posted some days ago.

The limoncello (lemon liqueur) gives a delicious lemon savour to this dessert and doesn't influence with its alcohol content.

Have you ever tried to make these bomboloni involving a different liqueur? I tried to make them with Zabov but the result was poor. :-((( The dough came out too much humid.

The sweet bomboloni with limoncello are better, of course!!
