Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat eggs and sugar together and then add the milk slowly--beat. Add the dry ingredients and beat until smooth and creamy.
  2. Pour batter into a funnel and at the same time, use your finger to plug the hole. In a large cast iron pot, add 2 inches of oil to the bottom.
  3. When the oil becomes hot, move your hand over the pot and slowly release your finger so the batter can start cooking.
  4. Move the funnel around to make designs.
  5. Brown on both sides--then immediately remove and drain extremely well.
  6. Top with brown sugar, or honey, or cinnamon sugar, or powdered sugar as a topping.

Now this was just FUN!! Fantastic recipe...tasted like I was at the fair. Kids went NUTS over them and were begging for more! Very easy to make. Next time I think I will go all the way and make lemon shake ups too!! Only problem I had was my funnel opening was too small for the batter...but we compromised and used something else. They still turned out great!! (I will be buying a bigger funnel though!!) Thanks for the great recipe :)
