My mother use to make these. This is her recipe. This is a very fun food for making memories. I love them!
2 TB sugar
2/3 c & 2 TB milk
¼ tsp salt
1 1/3 c sifted flour
¾ tsp baking powder
Beat the egg and add the milk. Sift the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder together. Add egg mixture. (It will be about the consistency of hot cake batter.) Beat until smooth.
Holding your finger over the bottom of a funnel, pour the batter into it. Drop batter into hot oil, swirling it into circles and other interesting shapes. Make each cake about six inches in diameter. Fry in about 1 to 1 ½ inch oil until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towel.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
