Fried Flapjack Floaters

Flapjack base:
2 cups biscuit mix
Milk, water or beer
Oil for cooking
1 tablespoon sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon (for sweet floaters only)
1/2 teaspoon each smoked paprika, garlic powder (for savory floaters only)

2 tablespoons tomato paste plus 1 to 2 teaspoons well drained capers
1/2 cup chopped scallions plus 1 finely chopped, seeded jalapeno
1/2 cup raisins or other dried fruit
1/2 cup chopped apple plus 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped walnuts

Make the base blend: Stir biscuit mix and desired dried herbs or spices in a bowl. Stir in water, milk or beer to make thick dough. Mix desired extras into your flapjack base.

Heat oil to 350 degrees in a large pot and carefully drop dough into hot oil by the tablespoon. When dough floats to the surface, carefully flip it over to brown the other side. Remove to a paper towel-lined bowl to keep warm and soak some of the oil. Serve alone or with a savory dip or sweet syrup.
