Zapoles

We have been enjoying a visit from family from the east coast.  Every time they come they bring with them a few new recipes to try out.  Today Papa and Talia made zapoles.  They are a pastry very similar to sopapillas, but not exactly.  They taste like a doughnut that is very soft inside.  Yum!

ZAPOLES
2 cups flour
2 T. sugar
1 t. salt
4 t. baking powder
5 eggs
1 lb ricotta
1 qt oil

Mix all ingredients except oil.  Heat oil in a deep fryer.  Use a tablespoon to drop dough into hot oil.  When golden brown, remove and place on paper towels to drain.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar and drizzle with honey.
