Alternate spellings: fritule, fritelle, frittelle, fritella.
is the Italian name for fritters. Frittelle have other names in different
parts of Italy. In Milan, they are called Chiacchiere. Liguria
and Piemonte have Bugie. The Marche region has Sflappe
and Frappe. They are also called Zeppole
and many other names too. However, to paraphrase Shakespeare, if we
call frittelle by any other name, they still taste as good. Source
Fritole (sweet fritters) are common in Venice during the period of carnival. They are also a typical sweet of the Istrian and Dalmatian regions. In Istria, they are also traditionally served for Christmas and Easter. They are a little heavy, but tasty, and go well with a good glass of medium sweet wine, either red or white. Fritole should be eaten the same day they are made for they become stale very quickly. Source
