    JackieMarie's Note:

    I found this on another website. These have a very mild taste and I find that the powdered sugar does seem to just taste better on these. You might want to experiment on the size of doughnuts you want. I ended up just doing all different sizes to have on my plate. Enjoy!

      YUM !! Fried these outside in a Frydaddy deep fryer, and they browned and rolled so easily ! Had jumbo double-yolk eggs, so just used 3. Was perfect ! Made 1/2 with mixture of sugar and cinnamon, rolled hot out of fryer. The other 1/2 dusted with confectioner's sugar, after cooling. Took them to a Labor Day BD party, and they were quickly scarfed up, as word spread. First had these by 84 yo mom of friend, (REAL Italian lady), and knew we had found a new love! Thanks, JackieMarie.

      I had a difficult time with this recipe. I was making them in a deep fat fryer and the outside got done before the inside was totally cooked. Since they have 4 eggs in them I didn't wan't to take a chance on eating any that weren't completely cooked. If I managed to get the inside cooked the outside was very, very brown. They were ok but I don't know if they are worth the trouble.

      This recipe is delicious. Since moving from NY to the south, i haven't been able to find Zeppole's anywhere, let alone a restaurant that even knows what they are, I miss the street fairs!..This is the first good recipe i have come across and most don't even use Ricotta! Thank you again for sharing a wonderful delicious recipe!
