- 2 cups oil for frying
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons baking powder
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 2 ½ cups warm milk
- In a large heavy-bottomed frying pan, heat 1 inch of vegetable oil or lard to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
- In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and milk; mix well. When the dough has pulled together, form it into small balls, and pat them flat.
- Place 3 or 4 at a time into the hot oil. When the rounds begin to bubble, flip them over, and cook until golden. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.
