Preparation

  1. Whisk the eggs with a fork.
  2. In a bowl, put the flour and make a hole in the middle.
  3. Then add the butter, oil, baking powder, sugar, milk, salt and eggs.
  4. Mix well with your hands until a dough does not stick to your hands.
  5. Finally add the vinegar.
  6. If necessary, add more flour to the dough if it still sticks to your hands.
  7. On a clean surface dusted with flour, take half of the dough, open slightly with your hand, and then roll it until you have medium thickness.
  8. Cut the dough in rectangles.
  9. Make a vertical cut right in the center of the rectangle and place the sides through the opening. (Be creative and have fun, create the twist of your choice)
  10. Repeat the process (7 to 9) with the other half of the dough.
  11. In a frying pan with hot oil over medium heat, fry the twists until golden brown.
  12. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and enjoy.
