    Last one for the day. This is really good!

    3 dl (1 1/4 Cup?) milk

    Pinch of salt

    2 TBSP butter

    250 g (2 Cups?) flour

    2 TBSP white wine

    3 eggs - separate the whites and yolks

    Fat for deep frying

    4 TBSP sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon mixed

    Bring the milk and  salt to a boil. Add the butter and let it melt. Sift the flour onto a paper towel or plate or into a bowl. Stir into the milk all at one time. Beat in the egg yolks one by one. Whip the egg whites until they are stiff. Pour the batter over the stiff egg whites and carefully mix together. Add the wine. The batter should be fluid enough to pour it through a funnel. Add more liquid if necessary (wine /img/vbsmilies/smilies/biggrin.gif  or milk). Ladle batches of batter through a funnel into the hot fat. Move the funnel in a circular motion so that the batter forms into swirls. Fry the Stübli until just browned. Drain and serve warm, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.

    You can make it in a "spicy" version by leaving out the sugar and adding more salt to the batter. Top with caraway seeds and serve with an aperitif.

    This sounds like something we here in the States would call a funnel cake.

    You are correct. Delite the wine add some vanilla and it is a funnel cake.
