  1. 2 large eggs
  2. 1 cup milk
  3. 1 cup water
  4. 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  5. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  6. ¼ cup granulated sugar
  7. 3 tsp. baking powder
  8. ¼ tsp. salt
  9. Oil for deep-fat frying
  10. Powdered sugar, for serving
  1. Heat oil to 375°F in a deep-fat fryer or larger heavy bottomed skillet.
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add milk, water, and vanilla until well blended. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; whisk until smooth.
  3. Cover the bottom of a funnel spout with your finger and carefully ladle ½-cup batter into the funnel. Hold the funnel several inches above the oil and release your finger, moving the funnel in a spiral motion until all of the batter has flowed out of the funnel. Scrape with a rubber spatula if necessary.
  4. Fry 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown, using tongs to flip once. Drain on paper towels. Dust with powdered sugar; serve warm.
  5. Repeat step 3 and 4 with remaining batter.
