DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl with a wooden spoon.
  • In another large bowl, empty the yeast package, then slowly add the warm water, mixing with a fork to fully dissolve the yeast.
  • When the yeast mixture forms some bubbles, add the mixture to the flour/salt, then add the three eggs.
  • Mix the batter, then set the bowl on top of your refrigerator (or other warm place), cover with damp dish towel.
  • After 20 minutes, check the dough for rising, mix again and let rise for another 20 minutes.
  • In a saucepan, heat the oil to medium heat.
  • Add the dough by the spoonful (about the size of 2 golf balls) Experiment with the first batch to make sure the oil is not too hot.
  • Remove when golden brown and place on paper bags to absorb the oil.
  • Place warm Zeppoles in a paper bag with powdered sugar and SHAKE.
  • You want them well covered with the powdered sugar.
  • These are messy.
  • If yours are not messy, you need more sugar on them.
