Ricotta Fritters

This recipe comes from Mangia Bene Pasta - what can I add after a title like that, except to say this site has some excellent recipes and information. Well worth visiting.

8 oz ricotta cheese
2 eggs
1/3 cup flour
1 1/2 tbsp butter, softened
1 tbsp grated lemon zest
Pinch of salt
Vegetable oil for frying
Honey for drizzling

  • In a bowl, combine the ricotta cheese with eggs. Add the flour and blend well.
  • Add the butter, lemon zest, and salt. Beat until all ingredients are well blended.
  • Allow the batter to rest for 1 hour.
  • In a frying pan over medium-high heat, add oil to a depth of 1/2 inch.
  • When oil is hot, add batter, 1 tbsp at a time, allowing fritters to fry without crowding.
  • When fritters become a light golden brown, turn them over.
  • Transfer fritters to a paper-towel covered plate to drain.
  • Place fritters on a serving platter and drizzle with honey. Best served warm.

Serves 4
