This Nutella Ricotta Zeppoles recipe was submitted into the Cooking with QuiBids recipe contest by QuiBidder Caroline B.
- 1 ½ pounds ricotta
- ½ cup of nutella
- 2 cups of flour
- ¼ tsp. salt
- 4 tsp. baking powder
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup of neutral oil for frying
First, mix together your ricotta and nutella. Then add your eggs. In a separate bowl combine flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the nutella ricotta mix. Let the batter sit for around 20 minutes.
Prepare a deep pot for frying over high heat and add your oil. Drop batter by large tablespoons into the oil. Each zeppole should take roughly 4-6 minutes to fry, so please stand by and watch them. They should also float to the top!! Don’t get nervous if when they are done frying they look dark, the nutella makes the batter a mocha color! When they are done, take them out and put on a wire rack so any excess oil drips off. I like to serve these the traditional way with a light dusting on powdered sugar! Boun Appetito!!
