– Most people served this hot with cold watermelon, but it can be used otherwise.

6 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 eggs
1/2 Cup cream
Enough milk to make a soft dough

Sift flour with dry ingredients. Add eggs and cream and enough milk to make a dough that is easy to roll. Roll out fairly thin and cut into strips about 2 inches wide. Cut short lengthwise slits in the dough. Fry in deep hot fat until golden on 1 side, then turn over and fry other side. Thinner dough yields crispier fritters. If you like them softer, roll them thicker. Dust them with icing sugar after they have cooled for a sweeter taste.
