    This is a delicious fried cake with a taste very similar to pancakes but a puffed and crispy texture. It can be sprinkled with icing sugar or cinnamon sugar.

    Serves: 12 

    • 2 eggs
    • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) milk
    • 2 cups (250g) sifted plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 cups (500ml) vegetable oil
    • 1/4 cup icing sugar

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
    2. In a large mixing bowl stir together the eggs and the milk. Add flour mixture to the egg mixture and beat with a mixer until smooth. The consistency should be thin enough to run through a small kitchen funnel. Test it and if it is too thick beat in a little more milk; if too thin, beat in a bit more flour.
    3. In an 20cm frypan heat the oil to hot.
    4. Put your finger over the bottom opening of the funnel and fill the funnel with a generous 1/2 cup of the batter. Hold the funnel close to the surface of the oil and release the batter into the oil while making a circular motion. Fry until golden brown. Use tongs and wide spatula to turn the cake over carefully. Fry the second side one minute. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with sifted icing sugar.
