I’d never heard of these before I accidently came across a recipe for them last week. So I had to find out something about them, this is what I found….Funnel cake is a regional food popular in North America at carnivals, fairs, sporting events, and seaside resorts. You can make them in 2 minutes & they are so good!
1 cup milk
2 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
icing sugar (for sprinkling on top)
oil, for frying
In a large frying pan, pour oil to a depth of about inch. Place over medium high heat to preheat while you make the batter.
Put eggs, sugar, milk, flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until well blended and smooth.
Test your oil is hot enough by dropping in a small drop of batter, if it sizzles it’s hot & you can turn it down to medium.
Using a funnel, hold your finger over the opening and add ½ cup of batter. Hold this over the hot oil and remove your finger, moving your hand over the oil in a zig zag or swirling pattern but making sure to criss cross over the batter multiple times in order to have cake connect. Continue until funnel is empty and then allow cake to cook until lightly browned on the bottom, about 1 minute. Carefully flip cake over and cook on the other side as well.
Once done, remove to paper towel lined plate and sprinkle top with icing sugar. Repeat process until all funnel cakes are fried, placing each finished cake onto it’s own paper towel lined plate.
Makes 4 – 5
You could also make lots of smaller ones.
I tried one with icing sugar sprinkled on it, one with strawberry sauce poured over it & (not pictured) one with fudge sauce. I now need to go on a diet! I have yet to try one with honey.
If your still not sure, YouTube it 😉
Let me know what you put on yours 🙂
