Vegetable oil, for deep frying

6 eggs

1/2 cup sugar

1 pound ricotta cheese

2 1/2 cups flour

1 heaping tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. In a deep saucepan, heat enough oil to deep fry (about half-way up the pot) to 350 to 365 degrees F.
  2. Mix the ingredients together in a bowl with a wooden spoon in order until the batter is smooth.
  3. Using 2 teaspoons, scoop a spoonful of batter then push it off into the hot oil with the other spoon. They will sink then float to the top of the oil. Turn them occasionally to fry evenly on all sides.
  4. Drain on paper towels and then dip in powdered sugar or roll at the table in cinnamon sugar. Serve immediately.
