Chanukah pastry puffs

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1¼ \N Cups all-purpose flour
1¼ \N Teaspoons baking powder
2 larges Eggs
3 tablespoons Granulated sugar
¼ cup Vegetable oil
¼ cup Water or milk
¼ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
5 cups Oil, for frying, more may be necessary
\N \N Confectioners' sugar, sifted, for sprinkling

from <<Faye Levy's International Jewish Cookbook>> These are made by Israeli cooks as a quick substitute for yeast-leavened doughnuts. They are ready in minutes & taste good, but are not as light as the yeast version.

Sift flour with baking powder. Combine eggs, sugar, oil, water or milk, salt & vanilla in a bowl & whisk until smooth. Add flour mixture & mix to a smooth, thick batter.

Heat oil to 350° or until it bubbles gently around a piece of dough added to it. Slide mixture gently into oil by rounded tablespoons for large ones or by teaspoons for small ones. If mixture doesn't easily come off the spoon, dip another spoon in the oil & use it to push the dough off. Fry 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.

Serve hot or warm, sprinkled with confectioners' sugar.
