  • Stainless Steel Measuring Cup and Spoons Set
  • Funnel Set with Cleaning Brushes
  • 8-Quart Stock Pot



  • 3 cups Powdered sugar
  • cup Whole milk
  • Pinch of salt


  • Vegetable Oil


  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp. Granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. Baking powder
  • ½ tsp. Kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. Freshly grated nutmeg


  • cups Whole milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp. Pure vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp Unsalted butter, melted


  • For the glaze, whisk together powdered sugar, milk, and salt until smooth. Cover glaze with plastic wrap while frying cakes.
  • For the cakes, heat 2½–3 inches oil in a medium pot (at least 6 inches tall) to 375°. Line a baking sheet with parchment then a rack.
  • Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.
  • Beat together milk, eggs, and vanilla; whisk into flour mixture until combined. Stir butter into batter until incorporated.
  • Pour ¾ cup batter into a funnel, using your finger to close off the end. (You can also use a measuring cup or squeeze bottle for the batter.) Starting from the center of the hot oil, and in a swirling motion, slowly pour batter in concentric and overlapping circles to make a 5–6-inch round.
  • Fry cake on both sides until golden brown, 1–2 minutes per side; transfer to prepared rack. Repeat process with remaining batter.
  • Top cakes with glaze; serve warm.
