Prep:
2 Hr
Cook:
15 Min

Ingredients

1 c
warm water (110-115 degrees(
1 tsp
active dry yeast
1 Tbsp
sugar
2 c
all-purpose flour
1 tsp
salt
vegetable oil for deep frying
confectioners sugar

Step-By-Step

1Sprinkle the yeast and sugar over the water in a measuring cup. Stir until the yeast dissolves.

2In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add the yeast mixture and stir until well blended. Cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place for 1-1/2 hours.

3Pour about 2 inches of oil into a deep heavy saucepan or deep fryer. Heat the oil until the temperature reaches 375 degrees or until a drop of the dough slipped into the oil sizzles and turns brown in 1 minute.

4Drop the dough by tablespoons into the hot oil. Do not crowd the pan. Cook the zeppole until golden brown and puffed, aout 2 minutes. Remove the zeppole with a slotted spoon and drain them briefly on paper towels. Repeat with the remaining dough.

5Put the zeppole in a paper bag, add the confectioners sugar, and shake them until well coated. Serve immediately.
