Try some bomboloni - they're bombolovely!

If you've been to one of our recent markets, you may have spotted some brand new treats nestling on the stall – bomboloni. But what exactly are they?

Quite simply, they're traditional, Tuscan-style doughnuts. And, although "il bombolone" literally translates as "the big bomb", they're somewhat lighter than a Berliner. The authentic recipe is made with organic milk rather than eggs, and our version adds the luxury of lemon zest and vanilla seeds too.

If you're ever lucky enough to happen across a bomboloni cart on a Tuscan beach, you'll find them filled "alla crema" – with custard – and it's always piped in through the top, rather than the side.

However, we'll be serving ours with a different, extravagant filling at each and every market. We've already made some with an indulgent pistachio cream (pictured), but you can also look forward to some bomboloni filled with home-made gianduja, our special recipe lemon curd, blueberry and maple sauce, and plenty more besides.

So, if you're wondering where you can get bomboloni in London, then look no further than the B&B stall. Just make sure you get there presto!

See you soon!
