Ricotta fritters with honey and figs


You'll need

225 gm firm ricotta, drained 50 gm caster sugar 30 ml orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier or Cointreau 1 egg and egg yolk, lightly beaten 1 orange, rind finely grated 75 gm (½ cup) plain flour 2 tsp baking powder Vegetable oil, for shallow-frying Figs, to serve Icing sugar, for dusting Honey, for drizzling

Method

  • 01
  • Mix ricotta, sugar, liqueur, egg, orange rind and a pinch of salt in a bowl until smooth, then mix in flour and baking powder.
  • 02
  • Heat 3cm oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat; test that it’s come to temperature by dropping in a little ricotta mixture in – the mixture should bubble and rise to the surface and turn golden. Carefully spoon tablespoonfuls of batter into oil in batches, and shallow-fry, turning occasionally, until golden (1-2 minutes). Drain on paper towels and serve with figs, dusted with icing sugar and drizzled with honey.
