Directions

Stir together the sugar and cinnamon and set aside.

Combine the milk, salt and butter with 1 quart water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, and then quickly remove from the heat and stir in the flours until smooth. If not frying immediately, cover with plastic wrap and reserve in the refrigerator.

Pour 2 inches of olive oil into a frying pan and heat over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 375 degrees F. Roll out the dough into thin strips and shape as you like, and then carefully fry in batches. Turn the zeppole once when golden and puffed, and then drain on paper towels. Dip in the honey and dredge in the cinnamon-sugar. Arrange on a platter, garnish with the lemon zest and serve immediately.

    My husband saw the episode and wanted me to make these since he is from that part of Italy and thought they were something like his mom made. I started to follow the recipe exactly and we realized some thing wasn't right. There was too much liquid for the amount of dry ingredients it said to use. It was very disappointing! Made such a mess in my kitchen. Had to keep on adding flour. We did make some but was not happy with them.

    DO NOT make this!! This recipe is totally non - workable. My husband saw the episode, and almost immediately started making these. The liquid to solid ratio is completely out of whack, there is no binding ingredient, etc. We wasted butter, milk, etc. And then had to redo it using a recipe from Giada De Laurentis. Save yourself the trouble, and waste, and just go to Food Network and do a search there. I would give this a negative rating if it were possible.
