These delicious little donuts remind me so much of a pastry my Nana used to make. The photo takes me back to a special place and time where I can smell the donuts and feel the burn on my tongue since I could not wait for them to cool off!
This recipe comes from a new discovery that I love called the Italy Food Page on Facebook. Their link follows the recipe.
- 2 jars Nutella
- 1 lb Ricotta
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 4 eggs
- 2 quarts Canola oil
- granulated sugar
To make donuts: In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 jar Nutella, ricotta, salt, vanilla, baking powder, flour and eggs. Mix until smooth to form dough.
Drop heaping spoonfuls of dough into hot oil at 375° and cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
Remove donuts from hot oil, drain on paper towels for a moment, roll in granulated sugar, and fill with Nutella.
