Desserts and cakes



For the Italian version click here!!!

The Sebada, also known are seadas, are fried parcels typical of Sardinia. The are my favorite dessert, but they are also one of the most famous Sardinian traditional dessert!!!

There are various versions of this recipe...this one is my mum’s recipe. Its very easy to make and soooo delicious!!! By the original recipe you should use sardinian pecorino cheese, but a few times, when I couldn’t find young pecorino cheese, I used mozzarella cheese and I have to say they were still very good!!!


for the pastry:

500 gr. of flour

50 gr. or more of lard

lukewarm water slightly salted

For the filling:

500 gr. very young pecorino cheese

lemon zest


oil to fry them

To prepare the pastry make a flour well add slowly the salty water and knead well. Gradually incorporate the lard and knead until you get a smooth and firm dough.

Set aside to rest for about 30 minutes.

Grate the cheese and mix it with the lemon zest.

Roll out the pastry in a 2,5 mm thick sheets, and then proceed as if you were making big ravioli with a 10 cm diameter,place some of the filling about 10/11 cm apart in rows, cover everything with another pastry sheet. Press the top piece of dough firmly onto the bottom piece between the mounds of filling, expelling as much air as possible. Cut with a water glass or a cookies shaper. There should be a 1 cm border of pastry around each bit of filling.

Fry them in abundant oil and drain on kitchen paper,In the meantime, warm the honey in a bain-marie, pour it on the sebadas.

If you try them please let me know...I’m 100% sure you will love them!!!!
