Dip it in fried dough!!
This was really the best. It was Jojo’s birthday this past week, and the theme of the party was doughnut burger, a dish made famous by the late Luther Vandross. Zena hosted the party in her yard, I brought over a huge bowl of batter ready to deep fry.
The dough was an Italian recipe consisting of:
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 16oz ricotta cheese
- 3 eggs
- 3 tbs sugar
- 3 tsp baking powder
The measurements made a thick batter/wet dough. Adjust accordingly. Fry with the oil about 350. I used peanut oil.
I started trying to fry hot dog buns at the request of Zena. I only made one, but it looked very funny!! I put some dough in a zip loc bag and cut off the tip to make a 3/4 inch hole. Then I squeezed it out in the hot oil. It looked like a long fetus, or some sort of elongated fish, mainly because of the tail trailing off a the end. Funny!! We laughed.
I asked Zena to see the hot dogs these fried dough buns were for, and to my surprise, they were spicy tofurkey sausage! How weird!! I decided to cut them into thirds and dip them in the batter and fry them. I still covered them in powdered sugar afterwards. THEY RULED SO HARD!!!!

Also, here was a very dark moment at the party when Zena presents a pinata to our birthday boy Jojo, and his response.
And here was a fun moment when we are all whistling!!
