Twisted Britches

From Dorothy McNett's Recipe book at These are fried "doughnuts" similar to French crullers made out on the cattledrives.

2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
peanut or safflower oil for frying
powdered sugar for sifting over the tops

Whisk eggs well, add sugar, oil, and vanilla. Whisk well. In another bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and soda and add to egg mixutre alternately with buttermilk. Heat cooking oil to a depth of 3-4 inches in a deep pan to 375 degrees. In meantime, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into rectangles about 2" by 5" or so. Slit to make two "legs". When oil is hot, carefully fry until golden, about 3 minutes, turning once. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
