  1. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the eggs and the milk. Add flour mixture to the egg mixture, and beat with a mixer until smooth. The consistancy should be thin enough to run through a small kitchen funnel. Test it, and if it is too thick beat in a little more milk; if too thin, beat in a bit more flour.
  3. In an eight inch skillet, heat the oil to 360 degrees F (182 degrees C).
  4. Put your finger over the bottom opening of the funnel, and fill the funnel with a generous 1/2 cup of the batter. Hold the funnel close to the surface of the oil, and release the batter into the oil while making a circular motion. Fry until golden brown. Use tongs and wide spatula to turn the cake over carefully. Fry the second side one minute. Drain on paper towels, and sprinkle with sifted confectioners' sugar.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

We added 1 tsp of vanilla and 2 TBSP of sugar and this came out GREAT!

it's a great recipe! the only problem i'm having is as soon as the batter hits the goes straight to the bottom of the pan, so i stir it..the batter sticks to the spatula then all the bat...

I have used this recipe for three years. The original receipe is only a 3-4 star recipe. I've jazzed it up a bit: 1. Add about 1/4 cup of sugar 2. Add 1 tsp of vanilla 3. MAKE SURE YOU USE A...

Good stuff! However, not advised for party of two. Otherwise, 1/5 the ingredients and you'll have just enough to satisfy your cravings!

The recipe used too much salt. I would halve it next time. At first, I thought that it was just me, but everyone was telling me that it tasted a little salty. We tried to cover it up with tons o...

Delicious...I added just a little bit of vanilla extract and it was just the right touch. I don't have a funnel either, so I used a pastry bag instead. Dust it with some powder sugar and that'...
