Lemon and ricotta come together in this delicious homemade donut hole recipe! This sweet breakfast begins with a simple ricotta batter and is fried in oil. Then the donut holes are stuffed with lemon curd for a combination that you will be drooling over!
I’ve been a fan of making baked donuts for a long time, but a few months ago I tried frying donuts at home. It is so much fun and so delicious!
These donuts holes take a little time and effort to make, but it’s so worth it. I promise!
I love pancakes made with ricotta cheese, so I decided to give it a try as a donut. It worked perfectly! If ricotta cheese in a donut sounds weird to you, don’t worry! It doesn’t taste different but it adds such an amazing texture and consistency to the donuts. Plus it is absolutely perfect when paired with lemon.
After frying up the donut holes, wait until they are cool enough to handle and then fill them with lemon curd filling. Your mouth will be filled with flavor when you take a bite!
A dusting of powdered sugar is the final touch on these beauties. You’ll definitely want to save any of the lemon filling you have leftover after you stuff the donut holes. Trust me, you’ll want extra to dunk the donuts in as well!
I think these Lemon-Stuffed Ricotta Donuts would be perfect for breakfast this weekend! Don’t you? Fry up a batch of these tasty little bites, your family will love you for it.
