Prep:

Cook:

5 Min

Method:

Deep Fry

Ingredients

PANCAKE OR FRITTER BATTER

1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1 Tbsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
salt
1/3 c
sugar
2 large
eggs (beaten)
3/4 c
powdered milk
1/4 c
vegetable oil
1 c
water (may need a bit less or more to get desired thickness)

SPAM

1 can(s)
spam (cut into stips like french fries)

OIL FOR FRYING

5
inches deep vegetable oil at 375 degrees

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Beat batter ingredients together in bowl. Set aside until needed.
2
Open can of SPAM. Cut into three equal slices. Cut each of the slices into strips (about the size of french fries).
3
Heat the oil to 375 degrees.
4
Dip the SPAM strips into the batter (one at a time). Place each battered strip into the hot oil. When golden, turn over. I only do 4 - 5 strips at a time as you don't want to crowd them and they cook quickly.
5
Remove fritters to a paper towel lined plate to drain off oil.
6
*** Any remaining batter can be cooked up as fried pancake donut balls... (if needed: add more flour to thicken dough). Fry them, drain them on paper towels... then shake in a bowl with powdered sugar. MMMMMMMM mmmm good!
