Zeppole

Just a quick post tonight. I just made these and Vegan Mom and I are going to curl up together, eat them, and watch North by Northwest. Ah, Friday . . . .


INGREDIENTS
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 tsp active dry yeast
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp salt
- oil for frying
- icing sugar

METHOD
1. Mix water and sugar together in a small bowl. Add yeast and stir to dissolve.
2. Mix flour and salt in a large bowl. Stir in yeast mixture and mix with a fork until well blended. Cover and let rise for 1.5 to 2 hours.
3. Heat oil in a pan (about 2" deep) over med-hi heat. Drop in heaping tbsps of dough in batches and cook about 1 min per side until golden brown. The dough is sticky, so I use two spoons to aid in the scooping and dropping of the dough in the oil. Remove from oil and drain.
4. Coat well with icing sugar when cool. Enjoy! Have an espresso!
