Having Zeppoles or Fried Dough down at San Gennaro got me craving a place in Manhattan where I can get these tasty treats.
Thanks for any suggestions!
Well, it should be confectioners sugar to begin with and isn't the clumping part of the experience :-)?
Zeppoles will always be a part of my childhood memory from San Genarro feasts... getting a bag and walking around, the grease coming thru the bag, each one tasting different as they cooled off. Probably the 2nd one was the best, I think there were 6 to a bag.
When I found out you could buy them in a lot of pizzerias I was a little upset as zeppoles were just forever linked to strolling through the feast as a child. I tried some at Ben's Pizza on Spring and Thompson once as an adult and was sorely disappointed. I guess it is Brooklyn (or feast) food.
