This is my recipe for Funnel Cakes from Middle School. The recipe doesn't say how many it makes, but I'll tell you, it makes A LOT. I think I got ten or twelve out of the batch I made the other night. I made less than half, then save the batter and made the rest today.
1 and 1/3 cups of flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
2/3 cup milk (or more if batter is too thick...I definitely needed more)
Sift dry ingredients together in a separate bowl.
Mix egg and milk together and add to the dry ingredients. Beat until smooth. Hold a finger over the bottom of a funnel, pour in some batter, remove finger and let batter drop in a spiral motion into 1 inch of hot fat (or oil). Fry until golden brown, turning once. Remove from pan and drain on a paper towel. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve HOT.
They would also be good with cinnamon and sugar...wish I would have thought of that earlier today. Ellie wanted to put butter and syrup on them. I told her she could. Good stuff.
