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)

How to Make Funnel Cake

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.
