DIRECTIONS

  • Dissolve sugar in lukewarm water in a small bowl. Sprinkle with yeast and let stand.
  • Combine milk, water, salt, sugar, baking powder, and raisins in a large bowl or in the bowl of a stand mixer.
  • Beat in egg yolks and yeast.
  • Stir in flour to make a heavy (rather stiff) batter.
  • Fold in egg whites.
  • Cover and set in a warm place until well risen (at least double in bulk). This should take about 2 hours. The end result is a fairly sticky dough.
  • Drop by tablespoonfuls into hot oil (375F) and fry until golden brown.
