Tasty Tuesday - Funnel Cakes!

My husband and I occasionally suffer from GHAFC disorder. (For any of you who may be unaware of this disease, it's full name is Gotta Have A Funnel Cake). We LOVE funnel cakes but can hardly stomach the $6 they charge at the local fair and amusement parks. A few years ago, we decided to try out a few recipes and see if we could find one that worked at home. Today I am posting our favorite funnel cake recipe. (We use a deep fryer, so I'm not sure exactly what setting you would use if you were to do this on the stovetop).

Funnel Cakes

2 eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
2 c. flour
1/2 t. salt
1 t. baking powder
oil for frying
Heat oil in fryer to 360 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together (except oil). Pour or spoon batter into a large ziploc bag. Seal out as much air as possible. Snip about 1/2 inch off the end of one of the corners. "Pipe" batter into hot oil in a swirling manner until desired full cake size is formed. Allow batter to fry for 3 mins. Flip over and fry 1 more minute. Carefully remove from oil and place of paper towel to drain. Dust (or as we prefer, COVER) with powdered sugar. Enjoy!

You may think im crazy, but try Pancake mix and sprite, mix thin enough to pour.
