Notes

A feast is not a feast without Zeppoli. You can make them at home, hot with powdered sugar. Great with coffee! If you want to be adventurous put a little anchovy or candied fruit in he center.

No sugar, huh? Sounds interesting. Could I fill them? I read the recipe so fast, I'm not sure if they bake or deep fry.

Oh my haven't been to an Italian Feast in forever!!Thanks for bring back such good memories!! Can't wait to try these.

The yeast will still activate....
I've never used sugar in it, but feel free...

No sugar to start the yeast or to sweeten the dough?
