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)
- egg , beaten
- 2/3 c
- 1 tsp
- baking powder
- 1 1/4 c
- all purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp
OIL OR SHORTENING FOR FRYING
POWDERED SUGAR FOR TOPPING
Sift dry ingredients together until well mixed.
Gradually add dry mix to egg/milk mixture, beat until smooth.
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.
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.
