Easy fried cakes very similar to pancakes.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 egg
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 1/3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 quart vegetable oil for frying
- 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar for dusting
Beat egg. Mix in milk. Sift flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder; beat into egg mixture until smooth.
Pour oil into a heavy pan until it is 1 inch deep. Heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Pour batter through funnel into oil with a circular motion to form a spiral. Fry until lightly brown; turn over to brown the other side. Cook to golden brown, and remove to drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar while still warm.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
