Directions

  1. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix together ricotta and flour. Add eggs, raisins, chocolate chips, orange peel, baking powder, zest and pinch salt. Mix thoroughly to combine.
  2. In a deep sided skillet, pour in enough oil to come 1 inch up the sides of the pan. Attach a deep-fry thermometer and heat oil over medium-high heat to 365F to 370°F
  3. Add batter in batches, a tablespoonful at a time, pushing the batter off the spoon with the rounded corner of a spatula (do not crowd the pan). Batter should puff slightly into balls. If not, slightly reduce heat.
  4. Fry fritters, turning with a slotted spoon until golden on all sides, about 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels to drain; sprinkle generously with sugar and serve warm.
