  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil for frying, or as needed

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, or more if needed

  • 1/2 cup white sugar

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Pour enough oil into a skillet to completely coat the bottom and heat over medium-high heat.
  • Blend flour, sugar, water, milk, egg, baking powder, vanilla extract, and salt together in a blender until smooth. Add more flour if the batter is too watery. Put your finger over the hole of a funnel and fill the funnel with batter.
  • Hover filled funnel over the skillet, release finger, and swirl batter into the hot oil; cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side.
