Funnel Cakes


These carnival must haves are much easier to make than doughnuts but taste just as good.

2 Eggs
1 cup Milk
1 cup Water
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
3 cups All Purpose Flour
1/4 cup Sugar
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt
Oil for deep frying
Confectioners' Sugar

In a mixing bowl, beat eggs. Add milk, water and vanilla, mix well. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt, beat into egg mixture until smooth. In an electric skillet or deep fryer, heat oil to 375 degrees. Cover the bottom of a funnel spout with your finger, pour 1/2 cup of batter into the funnel. Hold the funnel over the skillet, remove your finger and move funnel in a spiral motion until all of the batter is released. Fry for 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Dust with confectioners' sugar and serve warm.
Makes 8 cakes.
*NOTE*: The batter can also be poured from a liquid measuring cup instead of a funnel.
