I make these funnel cakes for hundreds of people at a time at camp…now I’m sharing my recipe with you!
2 1/2 c. self-rising flour
1/4 c. sugar
1 1/3 c. milk
2 eggs slightly beaten
Sifted powdered sugar (optional)
Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl, beating until smooth. Heat 1/4
inch oil to 375 degrees in a skillet. Cover bottom opening of a funnel
with finger. (Funnel with a 3/8 inch opening works best.) Pour 1/4 cup
batter into funnel. Hold funnel over skillet. Remove finger from
funnel end to release batter into hot oil; remove funnel in a slow,
circular motion to form a spiral.
Fry each funnel cake one minute or until edges are golden brown. Turn
and fry until golden. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining
batter. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired. Serve warm. Yield
about 1 dozen 5 inch cakes. You can also add a dash of cinnamon or
drizzle them with your favorite syrup.
