  • 450 gms – 3 ½ cups plain flour
  • 125 ml – ½ cup white wine
  • 125 ml – ½ cup sunflower oil
  • 100 gms – ½ cup granulated sugar plus more for coating
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder


  1. Put all the ingredients together in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a hook attachment and knead well.
  2. Make the dough into a ball, wrap it in cling wrap and put it in the fridge to rest for 15 minutes.

  4. Coat the taralli with granulated sugar and put them on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  5. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C – 355°F for 15-20 minutes.
