1 1/3 c  Unbleached Flour   
   2/3 c  Milk,Or More As Needed   
   1/4 t  Salt         
            -Oil For Frying   
   1/2 t  Baking Soda

   3/4 t  Baking Powder         
     1 lg Egg,Beaten


In a large bowl, sift the flour, salt, baking soda, sugar, and the baking powder together, blending well.

In another bowl, blend the egg, and milk together, mixing well.

Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ones, blending well, and beat until smooth.

Fill a skillet or pan with 1 inch of cooking oil and heat to a temperature of 375 F. Now cover the small hole of a clean funnel with a finger. Then fill the funnel with the batter.

Carefully move your finger away from the hole in the funnel, allowing the batter to flow into the skillet. Move the funnel to form patterns with the batter. Fry until golden brown, about 1 or 2 minutes, turning once with two spatulas. Remove to paper toweling to drain.  Place on a plate and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve hot. Repeat the process until all of the batter is used up.

To make a camping mix, mix the dry ingredients and put them into a ziplock bag with a copy of this recipe. When at your campsite just add egg and milk and there you are. Alternately, if you are not planning to pack milk, put about 1/4 cup of dehydrated milk in the dry ingredients and then use water to turn the mix into batter instead of milk.
