Lu, I can imagine my Grandmothers making something like this too! :-)
Is that sesame seeds on top or sugar? I can't tell.
I'd like to try these, does it have to be red wine? Or could you use Marsala too?

Anna,I sprinkled some icing sugar on the top but you can omit they turn out good as well.For this recipe I use only leftover red wine..I don't open a bottle just only for that!!!you can use Chianti,Morellino a good label;-)x

Lu, these bring back memories of my grandmother. She made a similar recipe but made it as one large ring that we cut into. I like your individual donuts. Very nice. Thank you for sharing. xx
