Make a flour "well", and add the sugar, the baking powder, salt, lemon zest and extra-virgin olive oil. Pour the oil very slowly, mixing it with a fork.
Add slowly the warm milk until you have a smooth dough. Divide the dough into three parts, shape three bands, make a string and then a circle. Place a raw egg at the linking point of the bands.
Put the 'scarcella' on an oven dish, brush it with another egg and some water.
Add some granules of sugar and cook in the oven at 180°C for 30 minutes.
