4 eggs 2 tablespoons caster sugar 200ml milk 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 pure ground vanilla or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 260g plain flour 1 teaspoon baking powder
1 litre canola oil, for frying icing sugar, for serving
1.Break the eggs in a bowl and whisk in the sugar. Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk into a smooth dough.
2. Heat oil in a pot and place a metal ring (or you can use a deep ladle) into the oil. Scoop the dough into a piping bag (you may have to work in two batches).
3. Once the oil is hot, pipe the dough into the ring making little figures of eight. Fry for a minute or two on each side, until golden. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper to soak the extra oil. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
