Ricotta Doughnuts

15' Medium 12345

Makes 8

1 cup ricotta
1 egg
1 cup self-raising flour
Zest of an orange
2 tsp sugar
3 tbs milk
Bertolli Light In Taste Olive Oil for frying
Icing sugar for dusting

METHOD

STEP 1

In a large mixing bowl, mix the ricotta and egg until combined. Then add the remaining ingredients and mix well until fully combined.

STEP 2

Fill a saucepan with olive oil over a medium heat. I use a 1L saucepan and 750ml of Bertolli Light In Taste Olive Oil (which you can strain and reuse).

STEP 3

After 3-4 minutes, check if the oil is hot enough by dropping in a little doughnut batter. If it does not sizzle, wait another minute or two and try again until the oil is hot enough.

STEP 4

Using two dessert spoons, form batter into doughnuts roughly the size of a golf-ball and carefully lower into the oil.

STEP 5

Turn the doughtnuts with a slotted spoon every 2-3 minutes until dark golden brown.

STEP 6

Then scoop the doughnuts from the oil with a slotted spoon and place on paper towel to drain. Dust with icing sugar to serve.
