Learn how easy it is to make funnel cakes at home. And by "easy" I mean ingredients that you have on hand, a few minutes of cooking time, and you're done!
Servings: 4-5 funnel cakes
2cupsall purpose flour
1cupconfectioner’s sugar for sprinkling on top
vegetable oilfor frying
In a large, thick bottomed skillet, pour oil to a depth of about inch. Place over medium high heat to preheat while you make the batter.
Place eggs, sugar, milk, flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until well blended and smooth, scraping down sides as needed.
Test your oil by dropping a tiny sprinkling of flour into it. if the flour sizzles, the oil is hot enough. Once it tests hot enough, turn the temperature down to medium.
Using a funnel, hold your finger over the opening and add 1/2 cup of batter. Hold this over the hot oil and remove your finger, moving your hand over the oil in a zig zag or swirling pattern but making sure to criss cross over the batter multiple times in order to have cake connect. Continue until funnel is empty and then allow cake to cook until lightly browned on the bottom. Use tongs to careful flip cake over and cook on the other side as well.
Once done, remove to paper towel lined plate and sprinkle top with confectioner’s sugar. Repeat process until all funnel cakes are fried, placing each finished cake onto it’s own paper towel lined plate.
