Using a medium size mixing bowl and a whisk, whip together the butter, sugar, eggs, milk, vanilla extract and ricotta cheese until smooth and creamy.
Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet until it forms a sticky batter. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. This batter can be made and refrigerated for up to 5 days.
Heat the oil to 325°F in a deep fry pan or a deep fryer. Drop spoonfuls one at a time into the hot oil. Fry on both sides till golden brown. Remove from the oil. Roll in a little sugar and allow to cool slightly on paper towels before serving. Enjoy as is or dip into warm nutella.
