These ricotta puffs are made throughout Italy. They are similar to deep-fried doughnuts made from ricotta, flour and sugar, which are pan-fried and lightly dusted with icing sugar before serving.
Is lower in protein than ordinary plain flour. It makes lighter and fluffier baked items. You can make your own cake flour by mixing together 145g plain flour with 2 tablespoons cornflour.
These are absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait to make them again! - 10 Jun 2011

These were great! Just like Nonna used to make. very moist. If you don't have cake flour use: 1 c of all purpose flour minus 2 T, then add 2 T of cornstarch. Blend well.It works for most recipes. Thanks, Liz for this one. - 09 Apr 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
