The Holy week is almost here so we brought you the rosquillas (spanish donuts) recipe!

Rosquillas are a typical sweet of Holy Week, whose origin dates back to the ancient Roman Empire, at that time this recipe has extended to much of Europe and the Mediterranean zone. Here we bring you everything you need to prepare the rosquillas!


  • 500g of sifted flour
  • 150ml of milk
  • 250g of sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • Zest of an orange or lemon
  • Natural orange juice
  • 1 envelope of chemical yeast
  • 100ml of Valdezarza Gran Selección extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small spoon of anise flavour


  1. First we pass the flour through a sieve and beat the eggs.
  2. In a bowl we toss the beaten eggs and gradually add the sugar until the mixture is homogeneous.
  3. To this mixture and at the same time that we are beating everything, we add milk, orange juice and olive oil until homogeneous mixture.
  4. Add the orange zest, the yeast, and the flour.
  5. Finally, we mix everything until the dough is consistent. If we see that the dough is sticky, we add more flour until it does not stick too much.
  6. When we have the dough ready, cover it with a cloth and let it for 30-40min.

To fry:

  1. We make small balls and a hole in the center with our hands and place them on a tray. Tip: have a bowl of oil on hand to moisten the fingers and work the dough better.
  2. In a fryer or skillet with plenty of oil and over medium heat, we put the rosquillas dough and let them cook on both sides.
  3. When we see that rosquillas have a golden color, on a plate with absorbent paper, we remove the rosquillas from the fryer.
  4. Finally, we batter them or simply pour over glass sugar or regular sugar and cinnamon and our rosquillas are ready!

Now our rosquillas are ready!
