    Funnel Cake

    funnel cake

    Yes, I first made this for breakfast. Next time, though, I won't be craving it quite as badly and plan to take a little longer making happy, perfectly swirled circles. Maybe. The golden griddle-y goodness is hard to resist for too long, perfectly funneled or not, so the priority is to get done and get eating.

    1 egg, beaten

    1/2 cup milk

    1/2 cup water

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    1 1/2 cups flour

    2 tablespoons sugar

    1 teaspoon baking powder

    1/4 teaspoon salt

    Oil for (sort of) deep frying

    Powdered sugar

    In medium bowl, combine egg, milk, water and vanilla. In small bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; add to egg mixture and whisk gently til smooth.

    Pour oil into bottom of skillet or frying pan, to about 1/4-inch deep. Heat oil to 375 degrees.

    Cover bottom of funnel (with 1/2-inch hole) with your finger. For each cake, fill funnel with 1/2 cup batter. Hold funnel a few inches above hot oil, then carefully remove finger and swirl batter in spiral motion until all batter in funnel is used. Fry 2-3 minutes until bottom is golden; flip carefully and fry other side 2-3 minutes or until golden. Remove and drain on paper towels. Top with powdered sugar and enjoy while warm.

    Makes four funnel cakes.
