I finally got around to making them today... a week later.
Totally worth the wait.
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1-2 cups oil for frying
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup milk
confectioners' sugar for dusting
In a mixing bowl, beat together egg and milk. Beat in flour, salt, baking soda, cream of tartar, and sugar until smooth.
Heat about 1 inch cooking oil in frying pan to 375° F
Pour 1/2 cup batter through funnel into oil with a circular motion to form a spiral (I didn't have the right size funnel so I went and bought a squeeze bottle from the $1 store which makes it Much easier to do this without a huge mess).
