One thing I love about Carnival/Fairs is the Zeppoles!
I told my husband the last time we went I had to make them,
because I can’t just have them once a year.
They are best fresh, right out of the fryer and coated in powdered sugar.
This was my first time making them at home, and they were delicious!!
I will definitely be making these again!
Makes about a 18 zeppoles
1 cup water about 110 degrees
1 package active dry yeast (2 1/2 teaspoons)
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Vegetable oil for frying
Powdered sugar for coating
Mix together the yeast and water.
In a separate bowl mix together the flour and salt.
Once the yeast is creamy combine with the flour/salt mixture.
Cover with saran and let sit for about an hour.
Dough should double in size and become very airy.
About 45 minutes into letting the dough sit you can start the fryer and heat to 375.
Using your hand or a spoon plop the dough into the oil
about a teaspoon size for smaller and tablespoon for bigger.
Turn once and then once golden brown drain on paper towel.
While hot and still oily shake them in a bowl filled with powdered sugar.
Cover them in sugar.. ah.
