How to make cocoa zeppole di San Giuseppe
For the rum cream:
Put the milk, water, butter, vanilla, a pinch of salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
As soon as the mixture starts to boil, remove from the heat, add the flour, cocoa and icing sugar all at once.
Put the mixture back on the heat and continue stirring until the mixture comes off the walls.
Transfer the dough to a bowl and let it cool completely then add the eggs one at a time, incorporating each egg well before adding the next egg.
Work the dough until all the ingredients are well blended together.
Put the choux pastry in a pastry bag with star-shaped filler and on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, form donuts that you will form with a spiral movement starting from the center and placing another circle of dough on the outer layer.
