County Fair Funnel Cakes

These are so yummy! What a great treat to make for a treat for any occasion!

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • oil for deep-frying
  • confectioner's sugar - for dusting

Instructions

In a bowl, combine the eggs, milk, and brown sugar. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; beat into egg mixture until smooth. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375 degrees. Cover the bottom of a funnel spout with your finger; ladle 1/2 cup batter into funnel. Holding the funnel several inches above the skillet, release finger and move the funnel in a spiral motion until all of the batter is released (scraping funnel with a rubber spatula if needed). Fry for 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining batter. Dust with confectioners' sugar; serve warm. (Note that the batter can be poured from a liquid measuring cup instead of a funnel.)

    I just made the funnel cake, came out very good. I did add 1 teaspoon of vanilla to the batter. Loved it, so did my family. To make it look like the funnel cakes from the fair, I put the batter in a pastry bag and squeezed it out in a circle then swirled it around back and forth so the batter could connect to each other. Plate size funnel cake came out great, with a good crisp to it. YUM. I added the strawberries and powered sugar..WOW!!! This is a keeper. I did try to pour the batter with the measuring cup but it poured out too heavy and wasn’t a steady flow. I was able to make 5 funnel cakes, though it depends on how many times you swirl the batter back and forth. Thank You, This is really good!
