This was a really tasty dessert, I added more milk every now and then as the batter thickened the longer it stood which made pouring through the funnel difficult.
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup 2% milk
- 1 cup water
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup sugar
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- oil for deep-fat frying
- confectioners’ sugar
In a large bowl, beat eggs, add milk, water and vanilla and mix till well blended.
In another bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; beat into egg mixture until smooth.
In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°F.
Cover the bottom of a funnel spout with your finger; ladle ½ cup batter into the funnel.
Holding the funnel several inches above the oil, release your finger and move the funnel in a spiral motion until all the batter is released, scraping with a rubber spatula if needed.
Fry 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
Drain on paper towels.
Dust with confectioners’ sugar; serve warm.
