|Notes:||From Volkswagen World
I use milk rather than the water/powdered milk. I haven't made it in a
while; I might have used a little less milk (which would have been 1% or 2%)
and hot water to get the temperature up. I know I used less salt,
probably only 1/4 teaspoon. I also fried it in only about 1/2" oil,
which worked fine. It's best when eaten really hot, especially with
butter and honey.
