These little doughballs are heavenly , when rolled in cinnamon sugar, or dipped in a simple syrup and honey mixture…..They are very addictive, and 6 are just not enough. I have made them with both regular pastry flour, and WW pastry flour….No perceptible difference. They can even be dipped in chocolate or caramel sauce, if you want to plate them , and serve them as a dessert….I have dipped the Spingi in the photo in 3 different coatings: Icing sugar, regular granulated sugar, and coconut flakes, prior to frying…
1/2 cup brown sugar
1lb ricotta cheese
1/2 tsp each vanilla and lemon extract.
1 cup cake flour (unbleached)
1/4 cup coconut flakes (unsweetened)
1 tbsp baking powder
1/8 tsp sea salt
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl with hand mixer or kitchenaid or by hand, if you’re so inclined…..Using greased hands or a small ice cream scoop, make prune-sized balls. Drop in 375F vegetable oil, and fry till just darker than golden brown….Remove, toss in topping and enjoy!
