Ingredients
  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 10 tablespoons melted butter
  • Package active dry yeast, optional
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Maple Glaze, recipe follows
  • Maple Glaze:
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
Directions
  • Combine the dry ingredients in large bowl. Whisk wet ingredients in a separate mixing bowl. If using dry yeast, add it to the melted butter. Stir the wet mixture into the dry mixture, 1/3 at a time, until combined.

  • In a deep-fryer or heavy-bottomed pot, heat enough vegetable oil to come halfway up the sides of the pot, to 375 degrees F.

  • Drop tablespoons of the batter in batches into the oil and cook until golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the zeppoles to paper towels to drain. Let cool on a wire rack.

  • Dip the zeppoles in the maple glaze, or your choice of powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, chocolate, white chocolate, caramel, sprinkles, or bacon toppings. Arrange on a serving platter and serve.
