  • Oil for frying
  • 1 1/2 cups Just add Water style pancake mix
  • 3/4-1 cup water depending on the pancake mix you use, you may need more water
  • 2 Tbs granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbs vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


  • Preheat oil to 375 degrees. Use a candy or oil thermometer or a fryer to insure the temperature is accurate and stays even while cooking.
  • Mix the pancake mix, sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla together, and adjust consistency with water until it is runny enough to drip through a funnel, but not too runny. You want it to run off a spoon in an even flow.
  • Either using a funnel or for more consistency a squeeze bottle, squeeze batter into heated oil, swirling around to get the cake shape
  • Cook for about 1 minute on the first side, and flip and cook 30-45 seconds on the other, or if using a fryer so cake is fully submersed, cook until golden brown (roughly 1 1/2-2 minutes)
  • Remove from fryer, put on paper towel to soak up excess oil, and sprinkle with powdered sugar
  • Enjoy immediately.
