Orange and Chocolate Zeppole

Posted on

Does this look like a science experiment gone bad?


I’ve said before that presentation is half the battle.  I don’t think that applies in this case, though.  These are basically little doughnuts; they just aren’t round.  I can live with it.

This recipe is from Giada’s Kitchen.  I thought I would mix things up and skip Everyday Italian for today.  GDL recommends mixing the dough for about four minutes until it forms a ball.  I’m quite sure that’s where I went wrong, you know, lacking upper body strength to whisk for four minutes straight and all.


They were still fryable, which is not a word.  I’m here to tell you that just because you add a suffix to an existing word that does not make it an actual word and a mean court reporter might sic you.


Alas, I digress.  They look good on the inside, don’t they.  Let’s just say there weren’t any leftovers.


Dress them up in some Orange Sugar and dip them in Chocolate Sauce.  The sugar is actually the best part.  Especially since there is a lot left and it will go in my coffee for the rest of the week.

Eat Well and Savor.
