Funnel Cakes


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
oil – for frying
powdered sugar – for dusting


In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, beat together milk, brown sugar, and eggs.

Slowly add dry mixture to wet mixture while beating with the mixer until smooth.

Pour 1/2 cup of the batter into a funnel (while holding your finger over the hole) or into a ZiplocĀ® bag with a corner cut out (while pinching the hole shut).

Holding the batter several inches above 375 degree oil, release the batter into the oil while moving the funnel/bag in a spiral motion.

Once all batter is released, fry for 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.

Drain on brown paper bags.

Repeat with remaining batter.

Sift powdered sugar over tops of funnel cakes; serve warm.
