Zeppole Di Veneto

Laura Sharrad

Ingredients:

  • 150g raisins
  • 100ml grappa
  • 400g plain flour
  • 10g yeast
  • 115g sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 150ml milk
  • 30g toasted pine nuts
  • Zest 1 orange
  • Zest 1 lemon
  • 50g chopped candied fruit
  • Canola oil, for frying

Method:

  1. Soak the raisins in grappa and let them plump up for 5  minutes, then drain well and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Add the eggs and lukewarm milk and work them into the dry ingredients. Next stir in the raisins, pine nuts, grated lemon zest and candied citrus peel.
  3. Knead the dough until it looks even, elastic and smooth (add a little more milk if it appears too dry; it should be fairly sticky). Cover with a clean tea towel and leave to rise in a dry, warm place for about 2 hours, or until it has doubled in volume and the surface is full of tiny bubbles.
  4. Fill two-thirds of a medium, high-sided frying pan with canola oil. Place it over a medium heat and wait until it reaches a temperature of 180°C.  Using 2 tablespoons, grab a spoonful of dough and slide it into the hot oil. Fry 6–7 frìtole at a time, turning with a slotted spoon, until dark brown on all sides. Drain with the slotted spoon and transfer to a large plate covered with kitchen paper.
  5. Leave the frìtole to cool slightly before rolling them in plenty of granulated sugar. Enjoy them warm or within 12 hours of frying.
