"Ciambelle (Ciambella, singular) are Italian donuts that vary by region, including some savoury varieties. Many regions have registered one or more types of ciambella in their official list of traditional food products, including: * Calabria o cuddrurieddru, a sweet fried donut made with flour and boiled potatoes, typically made at Christmastime. * Emilia-Romagna o ciambella ferrarese, a baked donut made with flour, sugar, eggs and butter. Originally an Easter dish. * Lazio o ciambella a cancello, 'gate donut' with an intricate rosette shape, made using aniseed and local wine. o ciambella all'acqua, 'water donut', so-called because it is first boiled in water and then baked. o ciambella ellenese, a small, knot-shaped donut made with cinnamon and covered with rose water. * Marche o ciambella frastagliata, 'jagged donut', made with mistr? (aniseed-flavour liquor) and a high proportion of egg, which is boiled, dried with a cloth, cut in half and baked until crispy. Retrieved from "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ciambella"
