This recipe came from a fund raiser cookbook for an elementary school in New Orleans. They have the texture and taste of a very light cake donut. Excellent with coffee in the morning, with or without a dusting of sugar. To save on prep time when you serve these for breakfast, mix everything together except the self rising flour the night before , and refrigerate overnight. Stir in the flour in the morning and proceed. Cooking time is included in the prep time because it is not passive. With my deep fryer cooking time is about 10 minutes. 4 batches of 6 fritters.
