Well, it's March, and for me, it's Zeppole time. Well, that's when they start making them at Molisana (Somerled ave) for the festival of San Gennaro. I was just there today, and got two - a whipped cream filled one and a ricotta filled one, and well, I'm not happy. They are quite small in size, a little expensive (2.50 for the cream, 2.75 for the ricotta) and were so greasy I could barely finish it. Now, I love greasy food as much as the next person (can you say breakfast at Cosmos??) but this was greasy like the oil wasn't at the right temperature and instead of frying the pastries absorbed oil and then fried.
Are there any other Italian bakeries that make these delicious fried dough jewels?
Will travel for good zeppole.
