Aunt Rose's Mardi Gras Doughnuts Cakes author::Alcee-Hymet Family
2 c Flour
2 tb Sugar
2 ts Baking powder
1/2 c Milk
1 pn Salt
1 ts Pure vanilla extract
Oil for deep frying
Mix the flour, sugar and baking powder together in a bowl. Make a well in the middle and add the eggs, milk, salt and vanilla. Beat these together and gradually work on the flour. Roll out on a floured board to about 1/4 inch or a little thinner if preferred.
Cut the dough into 2 x 4-inch strips and simply make 3 or 4 slits in the center of each. Fry in deep oil until golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
HINT: These will be firmer than doughnuts.
