Bring the county fair home.
These are exactly what you get at any fair or carnival.
I've made these for our block party and was a huge hit!!

* I know that these are called FUNNEL cakes but using a funnel can be awkward and messy. I've found that using a plastic squeeze bottle with a wide spout works great.(I used an empty margarita mix bottle that had a pour spout)

Ingredients

BATTER MIX

1
egg , beaten
2/3 c
milk
1 tsp
baking powder
1 1/4 c
all purpose flour
1/4 tsp
salt

OIL OR SHORTENING FOR FRYING

POWDERED SUGAR FOR TOPPING

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix Egg and Milk together.
Sift dry ingredients together until well mixed.
Gradually add dry mix to egg/milk mixture, beat until smooth.
2
Preheat oil in skillet to 375 degrees F
I used an electric non-stick skillet but I had to increase the temperature (425+) to get correct browning without sogginess. Just adjust this as you see fit.
3
When oil is hot, drizzle slowly in a swirling motion crossing layers till it's about the size of salad plate.
Fry to a deep golden brown then turn over and brown the other side.
Remove and place on several paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
4
While your funnel cake is still hot add powdered sugar to suit your taste.
Serve while still warm.
You can add additional toppings such as :
Flavored syrups
Fresh or Canned Fruits
Whipped Cream
Etc.
