This traditional Italian dessert couldn't be easier to make and is absolutely delicious. Zeppole Italian Doughnuts are a sweet pastry deeply rooted in Italy's history and culture. Made with ricotta and mascarpone cheese, these bite-sized treats are bursting with flavor. Once the dough is made, form it into small balls which you'll then fry on the stove top. After the doughnuts have been fried, dust them lightly with powdered sugar, and serve. These tasty treats are perfect for breakfast but can also be brought out as a sweet snack at any time during the day.

Donuts with marscapone and ricotta? I have never heard of using these ingredients in donuts, but a picture tells the tale, right? I think these doughnuts look divine, and I am up for the challenge of trying new things and seeing what the family things of these Italian donuts for breakfast this weekend.

Yes, Yes, Yes! I love this recipe for Zeppole Italian Donuts. My mother made them all the time when I was a child, and now I have passed the tradition on. The recipe is simple and straight forward, and to answer Edmund K, the answer is YES. treat them like you would any other "donut". I have rolled them in cinnamon sugar and filled them with jelly. Yum!

I don't believe I've ever had zeppole and this recipe sounds really tasty. I love doughnut holes, and an enhanced version of them would be right up my alley. I think these would be great drizzled with some chocolate or caramel. Has anyone tried making these and rolling them in cinnamon sugar? Time to crack out the deep fryer and experiment with a batch.

These look really good. I love making homemade donuts, and these look like a fun new recipe!

Doughnuts are my second favorite cheat food (right behind ice cream). I will DEFINITELY be making these Italian doughnuts.

Yum! These are my next must-make dessert!
