For the fritters:

Pinch of xanthan gum (leave out if using all purpose flour)
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla bean paste (or extract)
1 tbsp caster sugar
canola oil, for frying
For the chocolate sauce:
½ cup (125ml) cream
75g dark chocolate
Pinch of cinnamon (optional)

To make the fritters, place the ricotta, flour, baking powder, egg and sugar into a mixing bowl and stir together with a wooden spoon until well combined.
In a small, deep saucepan, heat about 2-3 cm of canola oil, until a piece of the ricotta mixture bubbles and floats to the surface when added.
Using two teaspoons, drop teaspoonfuls of the batter into the oil, and cook for about a minute. They will turn a beautiful golden brown, and flip over in the oil themselves.
Remove the fritters, and drain briefly on paper towels, while you continue until all the batter is cooked.
To make the chocolate sauce, simply melt all the ingredients together in a small saucepan.
Serve hot, with a black coffee or some washed whole strawberries.
