- 3 cups pancake mix (don't pack into measuring cup, just scoop and scrape off excess)
- ⅓ cup sugar
- 1½ tsp. ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp. ground nutmeg
- 2 eggs, beaten
- ¾ cup milk
- 2 tbsp. oil (plus more for frying)
- cinnamon sugar, icing, or maple syrup for dipping
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1-2 tbsp. milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla or maple extract
- Pour several inches of oil into a deep saucepan.
- Begin heating it up to 375 degrees over medium-high heat.
- It's important to use a cooking thermometer to get it to the right temperature
- and not overheat the oil.
- In a large bowl, combine pancake mix, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg, milk, beaten eggs and 2 tbsp. oil.
- Give it a good stir until well mixed.
- Scoop batter up using a spoon or a small cookie scooper and drop into the hot oil.
- Two things to really remember when making these.
- Don't make them too big and don't let your oil get out of control hot.
- A generous teaspoon of the batter is enough.
- Keep an eye on your oil temperature by using a cooking thermometer.
- Drop those puppies into the oil.
- Flip them over once during cooking so the get evenly brown on all sides.
- Don't try to cook too many at one time.
- Small batches work best so you have a chance to flip them around as they cook.
- Continue with this process until they are all done.
- When they are finished frying, place them onto a paper towel lined tray to drain excess grease.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar as soon as they come out of oil.
- Or make icing to dip them in.
- To make the icing, stir together powdered sugar, milk and extract in a small bowl.
- Stir until smooth - then serve.
