    OK. Let's give this a try. These are a deep fried doughnut type cake so you will need a heavy pan that will hold about 2 inches of oil. it should be wide enough to accommodate several cakes at a time or it will become a very long process. Oil will be heated to around 375° .
    Mix well all the above ingredients. If you don't have a heavy duty mixer use a wooden spoon because the dough is fairly thick. 
    Roll out dough on a floured surface about 1/4" thick. Using a floured knife cut the dough into 1 1/2 " strips. It doesn't have to be pretty.

Next cut into sections about 4" long (second figure). Make a slit in the center of each of the sections.  Now would be a good time to make sure your oil is heated to 375° Separate a section at a time and put one end through the slit and pull lightly to make a sort of bow. Drop them in the hot oil. Once the bottom is brown, flip them and brown the top. Remove from the oil and place them on several thickness' of paper towel to absorb excess oil. When cool the can be dusted with confectioners' sugar.
