This original recipe came from the Betty Crocker Cookbook.  I discovered it as a child and I usually try to make them during apple cider season.   It’s a little late now, but they are wonderful freshly made.   Mmmm….


  • 2 c. flour
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 c. oil
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c sugar + 1 tsp cinnamon


Heat deep fryer or oil to 375F.   Measure flour, 1/4 c. sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg into a bowl.  Add oil, milk and egg.   Beat until smooth.

Drop batter by spoonfuls (smaller than golf ball or they will be raw inside) into hot grease.   Fry for 3 minutes, flipping 1/2 way through, until GBD (golden, brown & delicious).

Roll warm puffs in cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Makes 12-24 puffs.
