This was great. Slightly Crispy on the outside, and nice and cakey on the inside. It took some time to get the hang of frying it, but once I did, it was smooth sailing. Only change I made to this was I increased the salt to 1 teaspoon. Next time I think I will also reduce the sugar to 3/4 of a cup as this was a tad too sweet. Thank you this was delicious, and exactly what I was looking for.
