FUNNEL CAKES, OH MY!

   This comes from www.pizzazzerie.com .  When I saw this recipe my mouth started to water, thinking of the funnel cake drizzles with heaping mounds of stawberries and whipped cream.  If you make these you'll be the hit at any dessert party! OOOHHH MMMYYY!



Funnel Cake Recipe

A wise person once said, “There are two types of people in this world: people who love fried food and people who won’t admit they love fried food.” I couldn’t agree more and I will openly admit, I love fried food! So, I’ve always loved the idea of making hot funnel cakes for guests at a party, but the thought of hot oil splashing everywhere, making a huge disaster in front of my guests was a little intimidating. Until, I found this great recipe and finally got up the nerve to try it. They are so easy to make and absolutely delicious!

Ingredients:

1 egg
2/3 cup milk
1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract {This wasn’t on the original recipe, but I added it and it made them extra delicious!}
2 cups vegetable oil {To fry the batter}

Directions:

1. Heat 2 cups of oil over medium-high heat in a deep skillet. Test the temperature by dropping a pinch of flour into the hot oil. If it sizzles right away without smoking, the oil is perfect!

2. Beat egg and milk. In a separate bowl, mix all of the other ingredients and slowly add to the egg mixture, beating until smooth.

3. Using a funnel, drop the batter into the hot oil, working from the center outwards, create a spiral and then a web-like pattern on top of it. {I used a plastic ketchup bottle and cut the tip about halfway down. It worked perfectly! But, you could also pour the batter into a gallon-sized freezer bag and cut the corner off of it.}

4. Sprinkle with powder sugar and serve hot! {Jazz it up and serve with strawberries, hot fudge, chocolate chips, or sprinkles.}
