Andagi (Okinawan Donuts)

     3 c flour

     4 tsp baking powder

     1 tsp salt

     1 c sugar

     2 eggs

     1 c milk

     1 tbsp oil

     grated lemon or orange zest, optional

     oil for frying

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.  Beat eggs, milk and 1 tbsp oil together.  Add to dry ingredients (add zest at this time, if using) and mix lightly.  Do not overmix.  Heat 1" - 1 1/2" oil to 360 degrees.  When oil is ready, drop batter into hot oil (I use a #50 disher).  Fry until golden brown all over.  Note:  if you manage to make round andagi, they will turn over themselves!
