Cooking time 20mins
Add milk and sugar to the beaten eggs.
In separate bowl sift dry ingredients together. Add to egg mixture, beating until smooth.
Heat oil to 375°F and pour batter into hot fat through a regular household funnel.
Control the flow of batter by holding your finger over the bottom of the funnel. Make patterns, designs, swirls or whatever with the stream of batter as it flows into the hot fat.
When “cakes” are golden brown, drain, sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and serve warm.
