Foodie & Spork: Zeppole

Foodie & Spork - Zeppole

Spring Bonjour

Spring is here and soon our streets in NY and NJ will be filled with street festivals and the smell of yummy stuff in the air. If you grew up anywhere in the Tri-State area, then you know one of the most popular fair treats are Zeppoles.

For those who don’t know, Zeppoles are deep fried dough sprinkled with powder sugar. YUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUM! If you haven’t tried these at least once, you really are missing out.

I found this recipe from Brown Eyed Baker and I wanted to share it with you!


  • 2 to 3 quarts vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup ricotta cheese
  • ½ cup mascarpone cheese
  • 3 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting prior to serving
