Zepoles (episode #5)

Zepoles

VERY IMPORTANT: don’t use a metal bowl to mix in like I did in the video it will produce crispy Zepoles instead of soft doughy ones.

 ingredients:

 home made zepoles
  •  one and 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 package rapid rise yeas
  • 1 cup warm water (110-115 degrees)
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • powdered sugar
  • vegetable oil or canola oil for frying

VERY IMPORTANT: don’t use a metal bowl to mix in like I did in the video it will produce crispy Zepoles instead of soft doughy ones.

Zepoles Directions:

  • Add the flour, water, salt and yeast into a glass, plastic or ceramic bowl.
  • Next you will mix until you have a runny batter.
  • After that you need to cover the bowl with plastic wrap.
  • Set it aside in a warm area to rise (appx 1 to 1 1/2 hours).
  • When your batter has risen, gently drop tablespoons of batter into hot oil 375 degrees and flip when golden brown.
  • Remove from the oil and set on paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
  • Cover in powdered sugar and enjoy!
