March 19 is St. Joseph’s Day, which is also “zeppole day” in Italian areas. Zeppole are basically split or small donuts with a filling/topping, and often a dusting of powered sugar on top. The zeppole I got from Missouri Baking (the only place in St. Louis that makes them, as far as I can tell), are filled with a simple cinnamon-topped custard…delicious! I was very glad to find some this year. We went to The Hill last year to look for some, but as St. Joseph’s Day was on a Monday. all of the bakeries were closed. I was determined not to miss out in 2013, and I bought the last six zeppole they had…it worked out perfectly!
