  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 to 4 cups flour, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder


  1. Beat eggs and add sugar and milk.
  2. Sift half the flour, salt and baking powder together and add to milk and egg mixture. Beat the batter smooth and add only as much more flour as needed. Batter should be thin enough to run through a funnel.
  3. Drop from funnel into deep, hot fat (375 degrees F). Spirals and endless intricate shapes can be made.
  4. Serve hot with molasses, tart, jelly, jam or a sprinkle of confectioners sugar.
