FAMOUS SUMMER FUNNEL CAKES
I figured homemade funnel cakes are the perfect treat for summer weekend festivities. Or any summer fun , aren’t they? I’m all for super cool food trucks serving up fried cookie dough potato chip stuffed macaroni and cheese concoctions, but I’ll always have a sweet spot for the classics. Preferably anything served on a stick (caramel apples!!) and most definitely warm funnel cakes with a snowfall of confectioners’ sugar on top.
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 4 cup flour, sifted
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- To beaten eggs, add milk and sugar. In separate bowl sift dry ingredients.
- Add to egg mixture, beating until smooth. Heat oil to 375 degrees and pour batter into hot fat through a regular household funnel. Control the flow of batter by holding your finger over the bottom of the funnel.
- Make patterns, designs, swirls or whatever with the stream of batter as it flows into the hot fat. When “cakes” are golden brown, drain, sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and serve warm.
