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!
