ricotta fritters with nutella®
All year round
Yields: 18 (6 servings)
Portion: 3 fritters
- 12 oz. ricotta
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- 3/4 cup unbleached all-purple flour
- 3 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 tbsp. vanilla
- Powdered sugar for dusting 3 oz. Nutella®
Drain as much moisture from the ricotta as possible. A quick method to do this is to wrap the ricotta in a cheesecloth or in a thin dishcloth, then squeeze the moisture out.
Combine all ingredients (except powdered sugar and Nutella®) and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Heat fryer to 375° F.
Drop rounded tablespoons of batter into the hot oil in batches and fry until all sides of the fritters are nicely browned and crisp, about 4-6 minutes.
Set fritters on a paper towel and dust generously with powdered sugar while still warm.
Serve with 1 oz. of Nutella® for dipping.
