Pre-heat oil to a temperature of 350 F. Please, be careful!
Mix the eggs, melted butter, baking powder, protein powder, coconut flour, vanilla and salt together. Mix until the end result is a smooth, pourable batter.
I used an actual funnel for this. With my finger blocking the hole at the base of a funnel, I poured in half of the batter. Then, I placed the funnel over the hot oil, with my finger still blocking it. Then, I slid my finger off to the side and moved the funnel in a controlled circular motion, above the oil. This caused the batter to drop into a steady circular stream, creating a disc of fried yumminess. Keep moving until all the batter has been added. When done, let it fry on one side until golden in color; maybe a minute. Flip and fry the other side. Remove and place on paper towel to absorb any excess oil. Immediately, dust with a mixture of powdered sweetener and spices. They will stick better, if fresh from the fryer.
There is enough batter for 2 cakes, or 3 smaller ones. Repeat the process until you're out of batter. Enjoy!
