Directions

  1. In a large bowl add the flour and the mashed potatoes.
  2. Dissolve the yeast in warm water, add a pinch of salt  and add to the bowl.
  3.  Mix all the ingredients well and work the dough for about 5 minutes. Alternatively you can use a stand mixer.
  4. The consistency of the dough should be rather soft.  Add a bit of extra water or flour to adjust.
  5. Cover the bowl with a cloth and leave to rise in a warm environment for about 1 hour.
  6. Get your oil very hot in a deep frying pan and with a spoon drop strands of dough in irregular shapes.
  7. Turn the dough in the oil until it is golden in color. Remove the Zeppole from the oil and quickly sprinkle with a generous dose of granulated sugar on all sides. Alternatively you can use powder sugar.
