Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 30 minutes



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and vanilla extract.

  3. Gradually pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients, stirring until a soft dough forms.

  4. On a generously floured surface, knead the dough for about 5 minutes until smooth and elastic.

  5. Divide the dough into 4 equal portions and roll each portion into a circle about 1/4 inch thick.

  6. In a deep frying pan or pot, heat vegetable oil to 375°F (190°C).

  7. Carefully drop the dough circles into the hot oil, frying one at a time. Allow each side to cook for about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.

  8. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fried dough to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

  9. Dust the fried dough with powdered sugar while still warm.

  10. Serve immediately and enjoy!
