Zeppoles are made to celebrate St. Joseph's Day

  • Servings: 35
  • Prep Time: 15 Min
  • Cook Time: 25 Min
  • Total Time: 40 Min


2 pkg Vegetable Oil, for frying
1 cup All-purpose Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 Pinch Salt
1½ tsp White Sugar
2 Eggs, beaten
1 cup Ricotta Cheese
¼ tsp Vanilla Extract
½ cup Confectioners' Sugar, for dusting


Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

In a medium saucepan, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Stir in the eggs, ricotta cheese and vanilla. Mix gently over low heat until combined. Batter will be sticky.

Drop by tablespoons into the hot oil a few at a time. Zeppole will turn over by themselves. Fry until golden brown, about 3 or 4 minutes. Drain in a paper sack and dust with confectioners' sugar. Serve warm.
