Recipe by ChrisMc

I don't have many breakfast recipes - I tend to be a Quaker Oats guy in the morning, but here's a recipe that's nice for leisurely weekend mornings.

We use these for breakfasts, brunches and also for dessert - they're delicious dipped in hot fudge!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.
  2. Combine water, milk, oil, and peel and bring to a boil.
  3. Add the flour all at once and beat until a ball forms.
  4. Remove from heat and beat in eggs.
  5. Heat the oil to 350 degrees.
  6. Fry spoonfuls of batter for 4-6 minutes; when done, drain on paper towels and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  7. Between batches, give the oil several minutes to get up to full heat; this makes the puffs much less oily.
