Heat shortening in a large heavy skillet at a 1/4-inch depth to 375 degrees F.

In a small mixing bowl, sift flour together with Clabber Girl Baking Powder, salt and cinnamon; set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs and milk together. Gradually add flour mixture to egg mixture, beating until smooth.
