Frank’s Thoughts on Growin’ Up Italian

Two Zeppole recipes included below


The word does something to me.

I have such wonderful memories of Zeppole. 



Both grandmothers would make them for special occasions. 

OMG, they are addictive. 

You only need a few ingredients to make a beautiful batch. Flour, baking powder, salt, ricotta cheese, granulated and confectioners sugar along with Oil to fry them in.

Zeppole are typical of Italian cuisine.

 They are also served on the island of Malta, and in Italian communities in Canada and the United States.  

zeppola (plural is zeppole) is an Italian pastry consisting of a deep-fried dough ball typically about 4 inches  in diameter. This fritter is usually topped with powdered sugar, and may be filled with custard, jelly, cannoli-style pastry cream, or a butter-and-honey mixture. The consistency ranges from light and puffy, to bread- or pasta-like.

    I have to show my appreciation to you just for rescuing me from this type of setting. Just after looking out throughout the world-wide-web and coming across recommendations which are not beneficial, I assumed my life was gone. Living minus the answers to the issues you’ve fixed through the review is a critical case, and the kind which might have in a wrong way affected my career if I hadn’t noticed your site. Your personal ability and kindness in dealing with all the details was priceless. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not come upon such a solution like this. I can at this moment look forward to my future. Thank you very much for this impressive and sensible guide. I will not hesitate to propose the website to any individual who needs to have counselling about this topic.
