  • skillet
  • funnel


  • oil enough for 1-2 inches in a pan
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 eggs


  • In a bowl, add your flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Whisk together.
  • In a measuring cup, add your milk. Add your 2 eggs to the milk and whisk until combined.
  • Pour the wet ingredients in the center. Use a whisk to combine. It's ok if you have a few lumps still.
  • Add your oil to your pan. You want 1-2 inches in the bottom of the pan. Heat the oil over medium heat.
  • Check the oil temp. You want to temp around 350 degrees. I look for shimmering oil and then test a little of the batter in the oil. If it floats and starts to bubble you are ready to go.
  • Once the oil is ready, using a funnel, adding about a ladle of the batter into the funnel. Use a finger to plug the funnel hole.
  • Bring the funnel over the hot oil and release your finger, creating a straight line about 4 inches long. Place your finger back over the opening and then repeat in the process until you have 4-5 straight lines of batter.
