Funnel Cake

Funnel cake or funnelcake is a regional specialty food originally associated with the Pennsylvania Dutch region of the United States. Funnel cakes are quite popular around the United States at ballparks, fairs and festivals. Funnel cakes are made by pouring batter through a funnel into hot oil in a circular pattern and deep frying it until golden-brown. They are often served with powdered sugar, jam, or other toppings.

Prep:

15 min

Servings:

Ingredients
3-4 cups all purpose flour
3 eggs
2 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
powdered sugar (for topping)
vegetable oil (for deep frying - heat to 375 degrees)

Cooking Instructions
Step 1 Beat the eggs, then add the sugar and milk. Sift 2 cups of flour, the salt, and the baking powder and add to the milk, sugar, and egg mixture.
Step 2 Mix while adding more flour until the batter is smooth and not too thick. The funnel should have an opening of at least 1/2 inch and be able to hold around a cup of batter. Put your finger over the bottom and add about a cup of batter. Remove your finger and allow the batter to pour into the center of the oil. Be careful, the oil may splash!
Step 3 Gradually swirl the batter outward in a circular motion, or criss-cross back and forth to make a cake about 7 or 8 inches round.
Step 4 We used to draw our initials to personalize our cakes! Check it with a pair of tongs and turn it when the bottom becomes golden brown.
Step 5 When both sides are done, remove with tongs and let it drip on a paper towel.
Step 6 Funnel cake is often served with powdered sugar on top. You could also use molasses, maple syrup, or fruit preserves.
