3 lg. eggs
1/4 c. granulated sugar
2 c. milk
3 2/3 c. all-purpose flour

Add 2-inches of oil to the bottom of a large cast iron pot. Heat over medium-high heat.
In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar together. Slowly add milk, beat until combined.
In a separate bowl, stir together flour salt and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture, beat until smooth and creamy.
Pour batter into a funnel and use your finger to plug the hole.
When the oil becomes hot, hold the funnel over the pot and slowly remove your finger to release the batter, while moving the funnel around to make designs.
Brown on both sides, then immediately remove to drain on paper towels. Dust with cinnamon sugar, confectioner’s sugar or top with berries and whipped cream, serve warm.
