Old Fashioned Funnel Cakes



3 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
3 eggs
2 cups milk


Preheat plenty of oil in a skillet on medium high heat. Make sure to leave enough room to add batter without causing overflow. We don’t want any grease fires!!

Mix eggs, milk and sugar the beat well.

In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt and baking powder.

Add flour mixture to milk and egg mixture.

Mix until batter is smooth.

Batter should be thin enough to flow through the opening of a funnel. You can add a little milk if necessary.

Add batter to your funnel take care to block hole with your finger.

Drizzle batter in swirling patterns into hot oil.

Cook until a nice golden brown then carefully flip it over with tongs to brown on the other side.

Place on a paper towel to drain. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Can also drizzle with honey or molasses.
Another favorite way to serve is by sprinkling with a cinnamon and sugar mixture while still warm.
