    WiGal's Note:

    A "secret" recipe that my aunt gave my mother in 1983. My aunt was the kind of person who was a good cook but would hide her recipes from other women. Am guessing at how many puffs you might get from this. Mom says this is really good and popular with her lady friends.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    • 2 cups powdered sugar
    • 3 tablespoons orange juice, guessing so start with 1 tablespoon


    1. 1
      Put oil into large frying pan and heat to 370 degrees.
    2. 2
      In large bowl, beat eggs well, add both sugars, cream together thoroughly, add melted butter, milk, sherry, vanilla, and zest.
    3. 3
      Stir in zucchini into same bowl as above.
    4. 4
      In a medium size bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
    5. 5
      Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients.
    6. 6
      Take about a teaspoon of dough, gently drop it into hot oil, and fry for about 1 minute per side. (Mom does about 18 at a time, but it depends upon the surface area of your frying pan.).
    7. 7
      Drain on paper toweling.
    8. 8
      Make a thin glaze by combining powdered sugar with a tablespoon of orange juice and keep adding orange juice until you think it is right.

      Yummy! I didn't use the sherry and subbed lemon zest and juice for the orange. Great way to use up garden zucchini! Made for PAC Fall 2012

      These were delicious and easy to make! I halved the recipe and got about 20 puffs. Drizzled over the glaze and both my husband and I gobbled them down! I have some saved for tomorrow. They soaked up the glaze, but still great to eat. Thanks to you and your aunt!! :) Made for the PRMR.

      YUM! Didn't make puffs, but I used the batter for doughnuts. Drizzled with caramel sauce because I didn't have powdered sugar. Delish!
