* oil or shortening for deep frying
* 2 eggs, slightly beaten
* 1 cup milk
* 2 cups flour, sifted before measuring
* 2 teaspoons baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 1/2 cups drained and chopped oysters

Heat oil in a deep heavy skillet or deep fryer to 370°. Mix eggs, milk, flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir oysters into this batter and drop by tablespoonfuls into the deep hot fat. Fry in batches so oil will not become too cool.
Turn fritters as they cook, so all sides will be golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
