Step 1 Measure ice water into large mixing bowl. Sprinkle batter mix blended with baking powder over ice water. Stir just until ingredients are moistened; do not beat. Batter will be lumpy. If it seems too thick, add more water. Place bowl of batter into bowl of ice water to chill.
Step 2 Heat oil in deep skillet to 375 degrees. Drizzle batter into pan, a portion at a time, so it just covers surface of oil and fries evenly. Fry until batter browns, turning to brown all sides, 3 to 4 minutes. Repeat, frying until all batter is used. Remove with slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. When fried batter cools, crumble into small pieces. Makes about 2 cups.
