Vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Garnish: Powdered sugar


1. Pour oil to depth of 1 1/2 inches into a 12-inch cast-iron skillet; heat to 350°.

2. Whisk together flour and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Make a well in center of mixture; stir in egg and next 2 ingredients until well blended. (Batter will be dry.)
