Main Ingredients

vegetable or canola oil, for frying

2 eggs 1 cup milk

1 cup water

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

3 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

confectioners’ sugar


1Heat about 1 inch of oil in a skillet or Dutch oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with paper towels and set aside.

2While oil is heating, beat together the eggs with the milk, water, and vanilla until combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and kosher salt. Add to the egg mixture and whisk until smooth and lump-free.

3Keep the spout of a narrow funnel closed with your finger and ladle 1/2 cup of batter into the funnel. Hold the funnel a few inches above the hot oil and release your finger, moving the funnel in a spiral motion -- like forming a spider web -- until all the batter is released. (You can also pour the batter into the oil, slowly, with a measuring cup with a spout.)

4Fry for about 2 minutes on each side, keeping an eye on the oil and adjusting heat as necessary, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and dust with confectioners’ sugar. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve warm.
