Cherry and Lemon Ricotta Puffs aka Fritters… These are an Italian-esk dessert, I would never go as far as to say these are a true Italian recipe.
I had a ‘test kitchen’ day about a month ago, lots of ricotta and lots of cherries to come up with recipes for. I eventually came up with 12 different cherry recipe ideas but really liked the idea of deep fried puffs (the other 11 are put aside for later)
This recipe is based on the Italian version of the Baci Di Ricotta; aside from adding fruit to the recipe, the consistency is much different. My version still has the ricotta as the feature whereas the Italian version can be almost a dough that comes out similar to a doughnut.
These are extremely moreish so don’t be afraid of making more than you think you will need!
