Ingredients
  • Corn oil, for frying
  • 1 cup mashed, roasted and peeled sweet potato
  • 1 cup whole milk fresh ricotta

  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper
  • 1/2 cup self-rising flour
Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Heat about 3 inches of oil in a deep heavy pot, fitted with a deep-frying thermometer, to 365 degrees F.

  • In a large bowl combine the potato, ricotta, sugar, salt and pepper, to taste, with a hand mixer until smooth. Fold in the flour, a little at a time, until just combined.

  • Working in batches to avoid crowing the pot, drop heaping teaspoons of the batter into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown, turning as needed to brown evenly, about 1 to 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels and dust with confectioners' sugar and a pinch of salt. Arrange them on a serving dish and enjoy!

  • Cook's Note: Be sure to let the oil return to 365 degrees F between batches.
