Chef Isabella as she makes another classic Italian dessert, lemon infused bombolone. If you don't already know, a bombolone is a delicious Italian filled doughnut. This is for anyone with a sweet tooth.


  • Frying oil

  • 375g plain flour

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 3 eggs

  • 1 lemon, grated zest only

  • 125g sugar

  • 225g ricotta cheese

  • Icing sugar for dusting


  1. Heat the frying oil in a deep pan or deep fat fryer. You can test if it’s hot enough by dropping a small amount of batter into the oil and seeing if it sizzles.

  2. Line a baking sheet with paper towels.

  3. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Set aside.

  4. In another bowl, beat eggs, lemon zest and sugar with an electric mixer for about 1 minute or until frothy. Add ricotta and mix thoroughly. With a spatula, gently fold in dry ingredients until batter is just moistened.

  5. With an ice cream scoop or table spoon, gently drop 8 balls of batter at a time in hot oil. Beware of splattering. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes or until doughnuts are golden brown. Drain on paper towel and allow to cool.

  6. To serve, generously dust with icing sugar or dip in chocolate sauce, if desired.
