1 In a small bowl, sprinkle the yeast and sugar over the water. Let stand until creamy, about 2 minutes. Stir until the yeast dissolves.
2 In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add the yeast mixture and stir until well blended. Cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place for 1 1/2 hours.
3 In a deep heavy saucepan, pour enough oil to reach a depth of 2 inches, or if using an electric deep-fryer, follow the manufacturer's directions. Heat the oil to 370°F on a frying thermometer, or until a drop of the dough slipped into the oil sizzles and browns in 1 minute. Have ready a tray lined with paper towels.
4 Scoop up a rounded tablespoon of the dough. Use a second spoon to slip the dough off the spoon into the oil. Do not crowd the pan. Cook the zeppole until golden brown and puffed, about 3 minutes.
5 Remove the zeppole with a slotted spoon or skimmer and drain on paper towels. Fry the remainder in the same way. Dust generously with confectioner's sugar. Serve hot.
