Doughnut Daze- Ricotta Fritters

Ricotta Fritters

Ricotta Fritters

For my annual Doughnut Daze party I made a number of doughnuts. I will be posting the recipes as promised. The first one I want to share with you is a really simple one called Ricotta Fritters.The dough is simple to make, fries up quickly and after a dusting of powdered sugar they are ready to serve. Delicate and not too sweet they are a dessert you can have ready in no time.

Ricotta Fritters

4-6 c. oil for frying

3/4 c. flour

2 t. baking powder

1/4 t. salt

1-2 t. grated lemon peel

1 c. ricotta cheese

2 eggs, beaten

3 T. sugar

2 t. vanilla

Powdered sugar for dusting

Heat oil to 370 degrees in heavy saucepan. While oil is heating combine dry ingredients with lemon peel  and set aside. Beat together cheese, eggs, sugar and vanilla until smooth.  Stir in dry ingredients. Working in batches spoon batter by level tablespoonfuls into hot oil, turning occasionally until golden brown, about 3 minutes in all. transfer with slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. Dust with powdered sugar and serve. Makes about 3 dozen.
