Funnel CakePosted: October 15, 2010
My H loves funnel cake. I dont mean in the normal way most people like a certain food. I mean in a way that turns him into a totally different person. He would drop anything, anything anything for a funnel cake. He can spot a funnel cake stand miles away at a park or fair. So, while we were watching a U of M game last week, he got a taste for funnel cake. So that lead me to search for a quick and easy but tasty funnel cake recipe. I found this recipe and it was well received! He loved it!
2/3 cup milk
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
In a deep skillet, heat about two cups of oil over medium-high heat until hot. Test the temperature by dropping a pinch of flour into the hot oil. If it sizzles right away without smoking, it’s perfect.
Beat egg and milk. Mix all other ingredients in a separate bowl and slowly add to the egg mixture, beating until smooth.
Using a funnel, drop into hot oil working from center outwards in a web pattern. (You can use a gallon sized freezer bag instead of a funnel by pouring the batter into the bag, snipping off a small corner of it, and squeezing the batter into the oil.)
Cook for about 2-3 minutes, remove from the oil when golden brown and crispy.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.
