2 eggs, beaten
1 3/4 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour, sifted
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

You’ll need:
A funnel with ½-inch hole
Oil for frying
Powdered sugar for dusting

In a mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk and vanilla. Sift dry ingredients together and add to egg mixture beating until smooth. Test batter to see if it flows evenly through funnel. If too thick add milk, if to thin add flour.

Pour about 2 cups cooking oil (about 1-inch deep) in an 8 inch skillet and heat to about 360-375 degrees. Cover funnel tip with finger and add about 1/2 cup of batter to funnel. Uncover funnel tip and release into hot oil in spiral patterns. Cook one at a time, frying until deep golden (about 2 or 3 minutes).

Flip and fry other side (about 1 or 2 minutes). Drain on paper towels and lightly dust with powdered sugar. Serve immediately in paper towel to outstretched hands.
