Drop batter by tablespoons in hot, deep oil. If oil is hot enough, sfingi will cook and turn over without help. If not, turn with a large spoon to brown on both sides.

Add as many sfingi that will fit in skillet or deep-fryer. Fry until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.

Combine powdered sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle warm sfingi with sugar and cinnamon mixture.

Delicious served warm!
