E Pagnochee co lŽUa de DŽAmato

The Raisin Breads of DŽAmato Bakers

I have collected this recipe from Michele DŽAmato, last of a series of generations (I personally saw in that shop his Grandfather and Father at work) to practice the bakery in the area between San Barnaba and the Salute; Now, he runs a pizza shop near campo San Vio.

With a similar dough, enriched with butter, sugar and egg, were prepared also the venessiane, those with stings on top (made pinching the paste out), and the thin crust of caster sugar.
