Boil milk with a big piece of lemon zest ( yellow part only), in a bowl beat 3 eggs, sugar, flour and the salt pinch.
Pour the milk over the batter in a thin string while mixing well.
Pour the mixture through a colander into a pot and return over the fire.Let it simmer until it thickens, then pour it into a buttered tin and let it cool well.
Keep it in the fridge for a couple of hours then cut in cubes with a sharp knife.
Coat the cubes in breadcrumbs, then soak into the remained egg, beaten, then again in breadcrumbs then fry in hot oil ( the original recipe calls for hot pig fat, lard) until gold.
Put the fried cubes over kitchen paper to absorb excess of oil and sprinkle with icing sugar.
