  • 200 g ricotta
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 80 g cake flour
  • 1 ½ T caster sugar
  • 1 ½ t baking powder
  • 2 t ground ginger
  • ½ t salt
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • vegetable oil, for deep-frying
  • icing sugar, for dusting
  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • 4 T extra virgin olive oil

Cooking Instructions

Mix the ricotta, eggs and cake flour, then add the sugar, baking powder, ground ginger, salt and lemon zest and combine.

Heat the oil in a saucepan. Spoon the batter into the oil and cook until golden and crispy. Place on a baking tray and finish in an oven preheated to 180°C for 5 minutes if not completely cooked in the centre.

Place the cooked fritters on a large serving dish and dust with the icing sugar. Using a vegetable peeler, shave the chocolate onto the fritters and drizzle over the olive oil. Garnish with orange zest.
