Funnel Cake

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!


1 egg
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.

    Funnel Cakes are the absolute best!! Your post reminds me of how simple they are to make, which leaves me wondering why I haven’t made one in the last 5 years. On the top of my to-do list now!
