Fancy Funnel Cakes
So I went to a carnival just the other night and they were selling funnel cakes drizzled in syrup, powdered sugar and whipped cream, delightful right? well I took just a bite of my daughters, and today I got a craving for one, so I got out the ingredients and cooked my own up. They turned out delightful and delicious
You should try them, and Enjoy
What you Need:
3 large EGGS
1/4 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 cups milk
3 2/3 cups Flour
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoon Baking Powder
Strawberry Syrup or your favorite toppings, there are all kinds of ideas here, chocolate, butterscotch, berry, blackberry, oh so many
Whipped Cream for topping
How to Make them:
Beat eggs and sugar together and then add the milk slowly--beat. Add the dry ingredients and beat until smooth and creamy.
Pour batter into a funnel and at the same time, use your finger to plug the hole. In a large cast iron pot, add 2 inches of oil to the bottom. You can use an electric Fryer if you have one I set it at 350
When the oil becomes hot, move your hand over the pot and slowly release your finger so the batter can start cooking.
Move the funnel around to make designs.
Brown on both sides--then immediately remove and drain extremely well.
Top with cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar, your favorite toppings and don't forget the whipped cream
