recipe image 1)

In a bowl, add the flour, 4 eggs, sugar, olive oil, baking powder and the zest of one lemon.

recipe image 2) Cut the mix in four equal parts (1 for each Gurrugulo). Take one part, divide it in three equal parts and roll each part into a strip about 1/2 thick.
recipe image 3) Take the three strips, unite them at one end and slowly and carefully braid them until the very end. Unite the two ends and on top of the union place an egg. Roll two very thin strips of the mix and place them over the egg in a cross fashion. The strips will hold the egg down. During the braiding process, if the strips are too soft or too sticky add some flour to facilitate the process.
recipe image 4) Beat one egg and with your finger wet the entire surface of the Gurrugulo. Add sprinkles of the color desired and bake for 20 mins. at 400F.
