    cup sugar

Directions

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.
