1 cup sugar, 1 cup milk
2 eggs beaten fine as silk.
Salt and nutmeg or lemon will do;
Baking powder, teaspoons two.
Now lightly stir the flour in.
Roll on pie board, but not too thin.
Cut in diamonds, twists or rings.
Drop with care the doughy things,
Into hot fat that swiftly swells
Evenly the spongy cells.
Watch with care the time for turning,
Fry them brown, just short from burning.
Roll in sugar, serve when cool;
This is a never-failing rule.
