    Vseward (Chef~V)'s Note:

    This is a real simple recipe to make doughnuts. It's an italian doughnut that is a little bigger than a doughnut hole but is thick like a cake doughnut. Awesome tasting.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut open the vanilla bean lengthwise. Using the back of a knife, scrape along the inside of the vanilla bean to collect the seeds. Scrape vanilla bean seeds into a small bowl.
    2. 2
      Add the 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon and stir to combine. Set aside.
    3. 3
      In a medium saucepan combine the butter, salt, 3 tablespoons of sugar, and water over medium heat. Bring to a boil.
    4. 4
      Take pan off the heat and stir in the flour. Return pan to the heat and stir continuously until mixture forms a ball, about 3 to 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Transfer the flour mixture to a medium bowl.
    6. 6
      Using an electric hand mixer on low speed, add eggs, 1 at a time, incorporating each egg completely before adding the next. Beat until smooth.
    7. 7
      If not frying immediately, cover with plastic wrap and reserve in the refrigerator.
    8. 8
      Meanwhile, pour enough oil into a large frying pan to reach a depth of 2 inches. Heat the oil over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 375 degrees F.
    9. 9
      Using a small ice-cream scooper or 2 small spoons, carefully drop about a tablespoon of the dough into the hot olive oil, frying in batches.
    10. 10
      Turn the zeppole once or twice, cooking until golden and puffed up, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
    11. 11
      Toss with cinnamon-sugar. Arrange on a platter and serve immediately.
