canola oil, for frying
1 ½ cup|250 grams all-purpose flour
¼ cup|60 grams granulated sugar
3 ½ teaspoons|16 grams baking powder

Directions

  1. Heat 2 inches oil in a large saucepan until a deep-fry thermometer reaches 375°F.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk the milk, butter, and eggs. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry, whisking. A few lumps are okay, think pancake batter.
