Units Scale
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder

You’ll also need

  • A deep frying pan with 2 inches of frying oil
  • A funnel


  1. Mix together all your ingredients. If the batter is too dry and won’t flow through the funnel, add a bit more milk to moisten the mixture. Heat up the oil in the frying pan. To test whether the pan is ready, drop a tsp. of batter in. If ready, it’ll sizzle the moment it hits the oil.
  2. It helps if you have the batter in a large two-cup measuring jug with a spout. That way you have the measuring jug in one hand and the funnel in the other. Over the oil, hold the funnel and pour in some batter. Move the funnel around so it creates circles and swirls in the oil with the batter, with all the batter touching each other until you have a circle of swirly batter bubbling away. Let it fry until light golden brown, then use a spatula or tongs to remove. Place on paper towels to soak up some oil. You can add toppings at this point, including icing sugar, cinnamon, jam or hazelnut spread, to name a few.
  3. Repeat the process until all the batter is used up.
