My kids LOVE these Easy Funnel Cakes, and I love them because they are EASY! They are pretty much just like the ones that you would get at a fair or carnival, but they are fried in a LOT less grease, so hopefully, a bit healthier.
2 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
3 2/3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
Heat oil in skillet. I make sure the bottom of the pan is coated, but I don’t get it too deep, which prevents the funnel cake from getting really fluffy, but they are just as good, and better for you!
Beat eggs and sugar together and add in milk. Beat together. Add in the dry ingredients and beat again until smooth. I like to put my batter into a ketchup type bottle so that it’s easier to pour, but you can also use a funnel and plug the hole with your finger, or you can even just pour it right out of a measuring cup.
Once oil is hot, drizzle batter in by making a circular pattern over and over – you can get creative with this part!
Flip once the down side is browned and then remove and place on paper towels to remove excess oil.
Serve warm. (YUM!!) Butter lightly, and then add your choice of toppings. We like to sprinkle with powdered sugar and cinnamon and then drizzle with honey. We also love to top these with fresh strawberries and whip cream!
