Lemon-Ricotta Fritters with Lemon Curd

The batter for these cloudlike fritters is flecked with lemon zest for a flavor that's subtle rather than sharp. A side of cool, satiny lemon curd for dipping reinforces the citrus theme -- and almost upstages the main event.

Cook's Notes

Do not crowd the pan; cook only a few fritters at a time. They taste best when served immediately after frying.

    if you can't find cake flour, you can substitute it with 'homemade' cake flour. One cup of cake flour is equal to 1cup minus 2 tbsp of white flour, mixed with 2 tbsp of cornstarch.

    Made these fritters for guests as a finger food before Sunday brunch. Can't even describe the reaction they got. Easily the best thing I've had all year and very easy to make. The ice cream scoop is also a really great way to drop them in the oil because the handle is long enough to keep your hand away from the oil.
